Weidmuller Launches Extended Lines for TB Enclosures & NPT Cable Glands

June 27, 2023

Weidmuller USA has recently announced a significant expansion to the company’s family of Klippon TB stainless steel enclosures and also introduces a robust new line of NPT cable glands and accessories for North American (USA) customers.

Klippon TB Stainless Steel Enclosures

The Klippon TB Enclosure series has been expanded with 31 sizes and three depths, providing the highest quality and most versatile enclosures that are ideally suited for the challenging environments found in industries such as oil & gas, petro-chemical processing, power generation, wastewater, pharmaceutical and food & beverage, among others.

Features of the expanded line of enclosures include:

  • 316L stainless construction
  • Highly corrosion-resistant electric-polished surfaces
  • One-piece high temperature silicone gasketing
  • Internal and external ground studs
  • IP67/NEMA 4x protection class specifications

“We’re very proud that these high-quality enclosures – all 31 sizes of them – have garnered the most comprehensive range of approvals and country certifications such as UL Class 1, Div 2, Zone 1, Zone 2, 21 and 22; ATEX; IECEx, and all relevant approvals required for use in industries and in hazardous or potentially explosive risk zones. Our customers will be provided with the best protection available for all of their connectivity applications,” said Carlus Hicks, Director Cabinet Products Division.

North American NPT Cable Glands

Weidmuller’s new North American NPT cable glands and accessories provide IP66 and IP68/Nema 4X water-tight connections and seals for usage in even the most hazardous conditions. These products are certified to UL Class 1 Div 1, Div 2, Zone 1, Zone 2, 21 and 22, ATEX, IECEx, and they meet all applicable international standards.

“National Pipe Thread, or NPT, is the U.S. standard for tapered threads on connections and fittings. Our new product line features NPT and metric cable glands for both armored and un-armored cable constructions including flameproof shipboard constructions,” said Carlus Hicks. “Accessories such as breather drains, adaptors, plugs and shrouds also conform to the standards and certifications of the glands in our extended portfolio.”

Weidmuller Assembly Services provides value added services that combine the company’s Klippon TB enclosures, along with cable glands, conduit hubs and other fittings, and Weidmuller connectivity products such as terminals, relays, surge suppression modules, power supplies, u-remote and other components in pre-populated enclosures, ready-to-wire for general industrial as well as hazardous location applications. Weidmuller enclosures and cable glands are designed to save time, increase efficiency and realize the lowest installed cost for connection solutions across the spectrum of industry sectors.
