Lighter, safer, stronger

Lighter, safer, stronger

TE Connectivity's (TE) Axicom Hollow Core Insulators (HCIs) are engineered for reliability in high voltage apparatus. Axicom HCI components are made of premium quality of glass-fiber reinforced resin tube, silicone rubber housing, and aluminum alloy flanges. These are suitable for high voltage outdoor applications, up to 1100 kV AC and 800 kV DC. The design and material make them lighter in weight, eliminating support structures, lowers transportation cost, and is much easier to handle. This high performance product offers a cost-effective and dependable solution.
