Lead-free cable glands

The future in production is also lead-free

The cable glands of the premium series HSK-M are now also available as lead-free versions in the sizes M12 to M63. This means that HUMMEL can already offer its customers a future-proof and sustainable solution today.

Anyone wishing to start the conversion process to lead-free production will find the right components at HUMMEL. Nobody needs to worry about quality and functionality. All technical features remain unchanged. UL certification is in preparation, so that nothing stands in the way of international use of lead-free cable glands.

The HSK-M cable glands are currently available in sizes M12 to M63 (short connection thread). Further variants are available on request.

Currently, the RoHS directive (Restriction of Hazardous Substances) permits a maximum of 4% lead admixture in the production of brass. This is based on an exemption regulation, which will expire on July 21, 2021. It is still uncertain whether this exemption will be extended and whether there will be transition periods. At the same time, the EU's REACH regulation lists lead in the "Substances of Very High Concern" list.
