A gland plate is used as the cable entry device. The material used for gland plate fabrication is SS316L.
The SS316L contains molybdenum (Mo), which provides excellent corrosion resistance especially against chlorides.
Nickel plated brass is most commonly used for the cable glands. Cable glands should also conform to the requirements for threaded joints.
It is recommended to use SS316L material for gland plates for the instrument junction box entry device with nickel plated brass for cable glands complying with IEC 60423 and IEC 62444.
