TE Connectivity (TE) has unveiled new marine high-voltage termination and splice kit products that provide a safe, simple and secure way to terminate both water and non-water blocked cables rated up to 15 kV. These new kits have been designed to be watertight and feature non-tracking insulation with a revolutionary new electrical stress control system. In addition, the kits assist in ensuring maintenance-free long life, even in highly contaminated areas.
“We offer both heat-applied and cold-applied products to help withstand in a variety of hostile environments,” said Terry Huston, Field Application Engineer, TE Connectivity, Global Aerospace, Defense & Marine. “The heat-applied products offer excellent abrasion protection as well as sealing that meets and exceeds the leakage requirements of Mil 24640. The cold-applied products offer flexibility and ease of installation inside cabinets and close-quarter environments.”
The installation procedure for the marine kits is streamlined, making them suitable for a broad range of applications, including commercial and military marine high-voltage cables. The marine high-voltage kits offer mechanical strength, watertight sealing and the ability to withstand extreme environments.
A wide variety of marine high-voltage kits are available and contain all the components required to terminate or splice marine cables. They have been designed and tested to IEEE-48 and IEEE-404 standards. They provide excellent environmental sealing, excellent electrical stress control and easy-to-follow installation instructions.
