LoviSil K cable accessories are suitable for use on paper-insulated (PILC or PICAS) and polymeric (XLPE or EPR) cable. This system comprises two ways of protection:
The electrical insulation is inside a polyester inner joint, provided by the combination of a polymeric tube set (primary insulation) and a high-grade silicone-based compound. This compound remains fluid, thus minimising the risk of discharge or dried out paper.When polymeric cables are used, the insulation is completed by fitting high-permittivity stress cones.
The mechanical insulation is provided by a strong polypropylene outer sleeve, filled with a two-part polyurethane resin serving as long-term water block. A copper wire mesh serves as electrical screen.
This cable accessory has been tested and approved according to HD 628 / EN IEC 61442 and HD 629 (CENELEC). The test was carried out with a water pressure of 20 metres head of water, so that the joint also meets NEN 3628 and NEN 3609 standards.
The LoviSil KB branch joint is suitable for making branches in medium voltage networks, as a result of which the use of a separate transformer station is no longer necessary.
The branch joint can be applied regardless of the type of cable, not only for polymeric-polymeric connections but also for transition connections.
LoviSil K joints are ordered on the basis of a modular system. There are four modules:
