TE’s connectors and terminations were built to perform under environmental extremes. Designed to be both flexible and tough, they can adapt to almost any type of cable. Our portfolio is offering the choice between heat-shrink and cold applied insulation. Each technology has its proper advantages that make it suitable for any environmental conditions and constraints such as thermal aging, high UV exposure, surface electrical activity, constricted spaces ... 
From medium to high voltage they ensure reliable connections into the wind turbines, power grid, generator and substation.

How to Detect?
