Installation Guidance
Gland Entries
On site installation of gland entriesThe customer may drill plain entry holes in the enclosure providing they are in accordance with the relevant code of practice and are to a recognised standard e.g. BSPP, ET etc. (Parallel threads only). Plain entry holes must maintain the following: 

a) The plain hole shall be no larger than 0.7mm above the major diameter of the entry thread. 

b) The cable gland or stopping plug is secured internally by a locknut, such that the cable gland or stopping plug will not be dislodged by a 7Nm impact. 

c) The enclosure should be maintained at IP66 by the use of a suitable sealing washer under the shoulder of the cable gland.

Mixed Gland EntriesFor guidance on mixed entries, please refer to the Hawke BoxHUBB enclosure configuratror for assitance with enclosure / entry placement design. A user account will need to be created to access. Alternatively contact Hawke Technical Sales for assistance
Stopping PlugsStopping Plugs can be instlled into spare entries and shall be held in place by a locknut
Terminal WiringIt is not permitted to fit more than one conductor per side in rail or direct mounted terminals unless using an insulated Bootlace Ferrule.
Terminal Heat DissipationTo ensure that the maximum temperature as permitted by certification is not exceeded, the dissipated wattage factor formula is used: W = N x F x I² (see enclosure wattage factor). For further details see Enclosure Dissipated Wattage
Intrinsically Safe CircuitsFor Intrinsically Safe Applications, Exe power terminals can be supplied in blue on request. (Note: The enclosure can either be supplied as Exe or Exia/Ex ib for instrinsically safe applications)
Terminal LinkingLinked and mixed terminal arrangements other than those specified in the data tables are available, but the voltage and current figures may be affected to ensure the maximum certified wattage factor is not exceeded. Please contact Hawke Technical Sales for more information.
Earth TerminalsThe enclosure is provided with an integral internal / external earth stud assembly, but when required, one or more rail mounted earth terminals may be fitted inside the enclosure but the quantity of power terminals shall be reduced accordingly. (Note: power terminals may be used as ‘clean earths’).
Terminal LimitationsTerminals for 16mm2 & 35mm2 conductors shall be installed on support rails directly mounted the enclosure base. Stand off pillars are not permisible for these terminal sizes
