ISO STANDARD FOR CABLE GLANDs
The ISO standard NF EN 62444 has replaced the standard NF EN 50262. It concerns cable glands with a metric thread. The standard defines the thread of cable glands. For example, ISO size 12 corresponds to a 12 mm cable gland thread (Ø12.5 mm partition punching), with a cable diameter of 3 to 6 mm.
Please note that the ISO standard does not regulate cable diameters. These may differ from one supplier to another.
PG OR gas pitch CABLE GLANDS
Unlike the ISO standard, the dimensions of PG or Gas Pitch threads are not subject to a standard. The PG thread is derived from the old German technical standard Stahlpanzerrohrgewinde. The passage of cables with a diameter of 5 to 25 millimetres is possible with a PG cable gland. The regulations concerning the protection class of PG cable glands are the same as for ISO cable glands.
The PG thread is still used in France, although it is tending to disappear in favour of the metric thread.
