The novel, compact PFLITSCH Ex-d-cable gland LevelEx®
Greater safety in Ex-atmospheres
With the new LevelEx® cable gland PFLITSCH has developed a modern ATEX certified cable gland in the "Ex-d" and "Ex-e" classes. It is of compact and slimline design which facilitates space-saving installation. The LevelEx® comprises just four components that can be simply and securely assembled. The sealing elements are of captive design and cannot be lost during assembly.
The LevelEx® achieves the type of protection IP 66 or rather IP 68 and thus corresponds to the types of protection Flameproof enclosure "Ex-d" and Increased Safety "Ex-e".
Many sizes – broad temperature range – international approvals
LevelEx® cable glands are available in sizes ranging from M16 to M63 and with NPT threads from 3/8” to 2 1/2”. The cable gland bodies are made of galvanised brass and stainless steel. Cable diameters from 7 mm to 56 mm are securely sealed thanks to the large sealing range. With their broad temperature range of -60 °C to +130 °C and ATEX and IECEx certifications, they can also be used under ex-treme environmental conditions.
During pressure resistance testing the LevelEx® fulfilled the minimum requirement of 30 bar/10 sec. With a reference pressure of 20 bar and a temperature of -60 °C the new PFLITSCH ATEX certified cable gland can also be used for any application. The fact that the components used meet the requirements of IEC and EN standards 60079-0 and 600979-1 was confirmed by PFLITSCH with the IECEx certificate.
