Transmission Flashover Protection Cover (BCIC-115-PH)
TE’s Raychem BCIC-115-PH insulating cover provides protection from raptor induced flashovers on 115 kV transmission lines. Its seven foot long body is made from our thick BCIS material and it can be used on both porcelain disc and polymeric insulator designs.
Bus Insulator Squirrel Guard (BISG)
TE’s Raychem BISG improved isolation guard prevents animal-caused outages in electrical substation equipment. BISG discs have been successfully eliminating outages from squirrels, raccoons, opossums, cats, and other animals in substations for years.
Medium Voltage Line Cover (MVLC)
TE’s Raychem MVLC cover provides state-of-the-art insulation to help prevent electrical outages caused by trees or wildlife coming into contact with distribution lines.
High Voltage Busbar Insulation Tape (HVBT)
TE’s Raychem HVBT tape is a heat-shrink, adhesive-coated tape that provides insulation enhancement and protection against accidentally induced flashover.
Bushing Connection Animal Cover (BCAC)
TE's Raychem BCAC hot-stickable insulating cover is designed to prevent animal caused outages on pole-top transformer equipment ranging from 15 kV to 35 kV.
Medium Voltage Conductor Cover (MVCC)
MVCC provides high quality electrical insulation for substation leads and jumpers.
TE's Wildlife and Asset Protection Raptor Cover System provide protection against the interaction of raptor birds with medium voltage distribution lines. See how easy the BCIC Raptor Cover and the BCAC Arm Extension can be installed.
Wildlife Induced Outages & Protection of Overhead Lines & Substations
The range of problems caused by wildlife and experienced by substation and overhead line engineers who have to deal with them is enormous. This paper deals with the most common, and can be categorized as: migratory related, local specific, food (predator or prey), and shelter/security/nesting.
