Advantages of Screened Connectors Systems

Screened separable connectors and elbows are used to terminate polymeric (XLPE & EPR) insulated cables onto switchgear and transformers fitted with ANSI/CENELEC-style bushing interfaces up to 42kV.

Layers of alternate insulating and semi-conductive EPDM rubber replicate the cable construction and provide a touch-safe interface between the cable and equipment.

Suitable for use on the five main bushing interfaces including: Interface A, Interface B, Interface C, Interface D, and Interface E, the new CENELEC Interface F is also available for high-current applications.

There are a number of advantages of using a separable screened connector system including:

– Rugged compact design – allows installation in modern compact substations
– Full screened cable-equipment interface – touch-safe
– Maintenance free
– Quick and simple to install
– Easy to disconnect de-energised cables
– Can connect more than one cable to a single bushing interface
– Fully moisture-resistant – can be used outdoor without a cable box
– IP67 protection – dust tight and protection against the effects of moisture
– Resistant to UV, Ozone, chemicals, mechanical abuse
– Temperate range from -60oC + 130oC
– Offers many test options: capacitive test points, cable tests
– Suitable for cables between 12kV–36kV, 250amp-1250amp (42kV and 2500amp for the Interface F)
