Protecting Your Electrical Systems from Flood Water.


Cables exposed to floodwaters should be replaced to assure a safe and reliable electrical system.

When wire and cable products are exposed to water or excessive moisture, the components may be damaged due to mildew or corrosion. This damage can result in insulation or termination failures.


Waterproof Connectors All wire or cable products that have been exposed to contaminated floodwater need to be examined by a qualified electrical contractor to determine the extent of the damage.

Moisture trapped inside a connector can causes severe corrosion of shields and conductors. Even if corrosion were not to develop, moisture present in the connector can change the characteristic impedance of the cable. A change in impedance can increase in signal reflection (VSWR), resulting in an unreliable or failed system.

 

Hunter Cable Assemblies (HCAL) offer a complete waterproof cable assembly solution to protect your electrical system through potting, encapsulation or over moulding the cables and connectors.

 


Potting & ENCAPSULATION

Potting is the immersion of or part of a cable assembly into a liquid resin until all components are covered. This protects the electrical components from humidity, dust, vibrations and shock.

Encapsulation involves building a mould or frame around an object filling the space between the frame and the object with a thermosetting material, waiting for the resin to cure, and then removing the frame.

 


Cable Over Moulding

Cable Overmoulding is an innovation positioned between potting and injection moulding technologies. Low pressure over moulding creates a rugged tamperproof protection for cables and connectors. It is a low cost solution to protect your sensitive electronic assemblies from the elements and wear.
