Armored Cable Gland

The armored cable mechanical protection layer can be added to any structure of the cable to increase the mechanical strength of the cable and improve the corrosion resistance. It is a telephone cable designed for areas that are susceptible to mechanical damage and can be easily eroded. It can be laid in any way and is more suitable for direct laying in rock areas. Armored cable is generally a fixed laying power cable, in general, is fixed in one place and does not move, power line transmission of electricity. The purpose of the cable plus the armor layer is to increase the tensile strength, compressive strength and other mechanical protection to extend the service life.

Armored has a certain resistance to external forces, but also to prevent rat bite, so as not to cause power transmission problems through armor, armor bending radius should be large, armored layer can be grounded to protect the cable.
