Our Raychem HVT-Z Terminations for Shielded Cables are made of our non-tracking tube together with a co-extruded stress control grading layer. This stress control layer is based on ceramic semi-conductor technology (ZnO) and provides superior discharge and impulse performance. When the tubing is shrunk down, the coating softens and sticks to irregular surfaces, providing moisture seals as well as electrical stress control.
Our Raychem Terminations for Shielded Cables are fully qualified per IEEE-48 as Class I terminations to provide a long, trouble-free service life.
Co-extruded one-piece termination
Built-in stress control
As an option, the HVT-Z can also be ordered with TE’s line of Aluminum Shear Bolt Terminals
These are range taking mechanical connectors that will accommodate a conductor range from #2 compact to 1000 kcmil stranded, Class B
Question: Is TE’s Raychem HVT-Z Medium Voltage Termination for Shielded Cables included in TE’s training program?
Answer: Yes, our Medium Voltage Terminations are designed using our Raychem heat shrink technology, so they are included in our installation training program. Learn more on TE.com/trainingcenter.
Question: With what type of conductor can I use Medium Voltage Terminations for Shielded Cables?
Answer: Our Medium Voltage Terminations can be used in any type of medium voltage shielded cables with copper or aluminum conductors.
Question: What are Medium Voltage Terminations for Shielded Cables made of?
Answer: The HVT-Z is made of our Raychem cross-linked polymeric EVA co-extruded with a zinc oxide matrix. The material of our heat shrink Medium Voltage Terminations is non-tracking, highly resistant to erosion, and UV.
Question: Which voltage range does Medium Voltage Termination for Shielded Cables cover?
Answer: Our Termination for Shielded Cables covers voltage up to 35 kV, 200 kV BIL per IEEE.
