Thomas & Betts' (T&B) Kopex-Ex SWA/SWB Cable Glands protect people and the environment from accidents due to explosions, making them useful in oil & gas processing and marine environments. Courtesy: Thomas & BettsThomas & Betts' (T&B) Kopex-Ex SWA/SWB Cable Glands are designed to terminate steel wire armored (SWA) and steel wire braid (SWB) cable for control, instrumentation, power and telecommunications. The SWA/SWB Cable Glands meet European ATEX directives for protecting people and the environment from accidents due to explosions, making them useful in oil and gas processing and marine environments.

In addition to global certification for use in explosive environments, Kopex-Ex SWA/SWB Cable Glands are suited for low-smoke, halogen-free and flame-retardant applications, and can operate in temperatures up to 194 F (90 C).
