CT 3G Series

Heat shrink cable terminations for three core armored and unarmored 5 kV to 35 kV, copper tape, drain wire and UniShield XLPE and EPR power cables for the electrical construction market.

Features and Benefits

  • Fast, consistent installation means lower installed costs
  • Heat activated seals ensure maximum protection against moisture ingress
  • Installation environment: use of torch adds flexibility to cable preparation in any climate
  • Light weight construction requires no additional support
  • UV resistant, non-tracking outer tube for long life, even under adverse conditions
  • Slim profile allows installation in confined switch gear cubicles

Standards

  • IEEE 48-1996, Class 1

Test Reports

Ordering

  • Select the 3/C termination kit size for the 3/C copper tape, drain wire or UniShield shielded power cable to be terminated. The CT 3X kits are for use with armour terminators or whenever a complete seal to the cable jacket is not required. The CT 3B series kits include a breakout boot and sealant to seal the termination to the 3/C cable jacket.
  • Confirm the cable dimensions. At the high end of the conductor range it may be necessary to select the next larger size kit. Dimensions are based on cable information from AEIC CS5 and CS6 cable standards.
  • For terminations that will be exposed to direct precipitation select the outdoor termination and add the suffix to the order number. To add an external grounding kit for tape shielded cables add to the end of the order number. To include a cable preparation kit add the suffix to the end of the order number. FOR EXAMPLE: a 3/C, 15 kV outdoor termination with a boot for 350 kcmil cable with an external ground kit and cable preparation kit would be CT 3B152EGP. The same cable terminated indoors with a boot and cable preparation kit would be CT 3B152GP.
