Hazardous area equipment specialist Hawke International has introduced cable gland selection software on the latest version of their electronic catalogue. Designers can drill down, using context relevant help, to find the right gland for their needs. Operators may either specify environmental requirements and cable characteristics or use cable manufacturer's codes and product descriptions to access the data sheet for the relevant product.


"Previously, selecting the correct cable gland was a time consuming exercise - our software has changed this," explained Mike Connelly. The software not only leads the enquirer to the right product but also shows alternative and similar products that can be considered. "Improving gland selection achieves greater safety with a possibility of substantial cost saving in some cases," added Mike.


The CD will save time for project designers and electrical engineers. The interactive catalogue features the complete Hawke portfolio including glands for hazardous and industrial areas complying with either European or North American standards. Full technical sheets are called up in PDF format for previewing. The selection software can automatically generate enquiries for printing or faxing. Enquiries can also be saved for easy recall in the future. There is even a simple one-button operation to export enquiry data to Microsoft Excel. In addition to accessing data sheets and generating enquiries, users can view product certificates and obtain useful installation advice from the training videos, which are also included on the CD.


The CD is part of a programme of ongoing product development and user support. Mike Connelly commented, "The software is a first for our industry, but we are still moving forward. Additional cable data is being added all the time. We will also be making these tools accessible via the web and adding multi-language capability in the near future."
