Selecting the correct cable glands for use in hazardous areas has never been easier. Hawke International has developed a web-based cable gland selection application that is available to registered users of their web site www.ehawke.com. This enables project designers and electrical engineers to spec a complete project over the internet, 24/7, from anywhere in the world. This is just one feature of the new registered users area, which also includes installation-training videos, downloadable PDF brochures and a searchable FAQ database for technical questions.

Using the selection application on the web is easy. Registration takes seconds. Projects can be saved and recalled later for additions or amendments to be made. Once selection is complete, the application can send the specification to Hawke, or their appointed distributors, to receive a quotation. This turns a previously time consuming exercise into a few mouse clicks

Andy Troy, Hawke's web developer, explained, "One of the goals for the project was to provide the user with a better experience than traditional web-based applications. Macromedia's state of the art rich internet application technology fitted the bill perfectly. This provides a single screen user interface that allows all selections and amendments to be made without page re-loading, thus making the process rapid and hassle free."

"The only requirement is that Macromedia Flash Player is installed on the client PC. This free download is already installed on 98 percent of internet connected machines. Hosting the service on Hawke's website also removes a problem for companies that are unable to install certain types of software due to their own security policies," added Andy.

Andy concluded, "We have made a substantial body of information easily accessible. We have also introduced a fun element - as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations we are running a competition (www.ehawke.com) to find the oldest installed Hawke cable gland. The competition closes on the 30th July 2005."
