Preparing Cable & Gland For Installing Hawke 501/453/universal

Hawke 501/453/Universal - Cable & Gland Preparation

Cable Preparation

Strip cable to suit equipment as shown above and expose the armour/braid ‘I’.

‘I’ = 20mm for cable gland sizes Os to C ‘I’ = 25mm for cable gland sizes C2 to H & J ‘II’ = to suit equipment.

Cable Gland Preparation

Push the cable through the armour spigot (4). Spread armour/braid over the armour spigot (4) until the end of the armour/braid is up against the shoulder of the armour cone. Position the armour clamping ring (3).

Remove the inner seal (5) from the entry (6). Place the entry (6) over the armour spigot (4). Move the sub-assembly (1) and (2) up to meet the entry (6). Note: If the equipment has a threaded entry, it may be advisable to screw the entry component into the equipment to prevent twisting of the cable after step D
