CJ 80 Series

The CJ 80 series joints are single core, heat shrink joints for splicing 15 kV and 25 kV jacketed or unjacketed paper and lead laminated dielectric cable (PILC or VCLC) to itself or to XLP or EPR extruded dielectric, tape, wire shielded or concentric neutral cable.

Features and Benefits

  • Fast, consistent installation means lower installed costs
  • No lead wiping required for positive oil stops
  • Installation environment: use of torch adds flexibility to cable preparation in any climate
  • Heat activated seals ensure maximum protection against moisture ingress
  • Reinforced wraparound sleeve with aluminum foil liner provides rugged protection and a moisture vapor barrier
  • Wide cable ranges reduce inventory
  • Pressure tested for continuous operation at 15 psig at 110°C
  • Slim profile allows installation in confined areas

Standards

  • IEEE 404-2000

Ordering

  • Find the cables voltage class and conductor size(s) to be spliced. Select the kit order number that covers the conductor size range. Confirm the dimensional data; particularly when the conductor size is at the extremes of the range. The overlap in size ranges allows for size transitions when splicing different cable sizes. The determining factors for selection are that the minimum and maximum dimensions for the primary insulation and connector dimensions are met and that the jacket diameter(s) maximums are not exceeded.
  • For size transitions outside the listed range consult the factory.
