The standards set for cable glands which are protected by armor ensure that even an explosion won’t damage them. NawaUSA.com provides the most popular products, including hawke cable glands.
Hawke has an extensive listing of cable glands. In a recent news brief, the company pointed out the extreme measures it made to eliminate moisture ingress from its armor cables. Hawke went several steps further than the required and demand DTS01 industry standards test to comprise their own extreme tests. They were able to show that when their cable gland has a deluge seal in the armor clamping area, there is no water ingress. They produced their own certificate as a measure of this accomplishment.
The flameproof seal that Hawke provides is made of silicone and is resistant to ozone and oil. It can be used at extreme temperatures, high and low. On the seal is a backnut tightened upon it in accordance with specifications IP66, NEMA 4X and others.
Hawke speaks of a “Unique Inspectable Compound Chamber” protecting the armor cable glands. This chamber has the flameproof seal. The sealing system is unique and can stand in for cold flow cables. There is a reversible cable clamp that can fit many kinds of cable armor or braid, and it is marked accordingly so it won’t be incorrectly positioned. The cable gland is fully inspectable.
