Screened Separable Connectors

High Voltage Cable Terminations

 

Thorne & Derrick are Approved Distributors & Stockists for Nexans Euromold Connectors – fully screened compact separable cable connectors terminate medium/high voltage cables onto bushings to provide a “touch safe” cable termination with disconnection option for polymeric cables (XLPE EPR).

Nexans Euromold screened separable connectors and elbows are used to terminate high voltage cables with polymeric insulation (XLPE & EPR) onto switchgear and transformer bushings up to 33kV.

Screened separable connectors are also known as screened elbows or tee connectors. 

  • Slip on fit - quick & easy to install connectors
  • Touchproof cable termination-  fully screened connectors for safety
  • One part cable termination - built-in stress relief
  • Maintenance friendly - readily disconnectable 

 

Nexans Euromold

2 types of connector are available i) Deadbreak : connector cannnot be connected/disconnected when energised ii) Loadbreak.

Nexans Euromold screened separable connectors and elbows suit high voltage manufacturers equipment including ABB, Siemens, Alstom, Brush & Hawker Siddley, 11kV-33kV.

Euromold bushings are available for high voltage oil, air and gas insulated switchgear and transformers to CENELEC EN50180 and ANSI IEEE 386 standards.


Nexans Euromold Cable Connectors 
 

Nexans Euromold manufacture 11kV-33kV pre-moulded EPDM separable elbow connectors, heat shrink cable joints and cable terminations, cold shrink cable joints and cable terminations and epoxy bushings for high voltage switchgear and transformers. Euromold cable accessories meet CENELEC HD929.1, CENELEC EN50180, IEC 137, IEEE 386 & 404.

A screened cable connector is an encapsulated, safe to touch high voltage cable termination used to connect HV cables to the epoxy bushings of high voltage electrical equipment including transformers, switchgear and motors.


Advantages of Nexans Euromold HV Cable Connector Systems

  • No minimum distances required - suitable for compact HV substations
  • Safe to touch accidentally when energised
  • Maintenance free HV cable connectors and terminations
  • Quick and easy to install connectors by trained cable jointers
  • Fully watertight cable terminations - IP67 ingress protection
  • Complete cable connector ranges for 11kV to 33kV cable connections
  • Connectors suitable for outdoor cable termination without cable box
  • Tee connectors can be piggy-backed to allow multiple cable connections onto bushings

 

Nexans Euromold Connectors & Bushing Interfaces

The MV-HV electrical equipment to which Nexans Euromold connectors are fitted to must have the correct mating bushing interface and can be used to terminate both single and three 3 core cables.
