Scotchcast Cable Joints
Branch Jointing Cables
3M Electrical branch cable jointing kits using Scotchcast resin are certified to BS-EN 50393:2006 – armoured and unarmoured LV branch cable joints complete with mechanical shearbolt connectors are available from stock.
Branch joints are encapsulated with two-part resin for electrical insulation and mechanical protection. Low voltage branch joints are suitable for both cut and uncut mains XLPE or PILC insulated power cables. For applications up to 1000 volts, the cable joints may be resin filled under load conditions.
Sicame connectors feature shearbolt technology for fast, simple cable jointing without resort to compression tooling and associated die sets – ideal for cable jointing metric to imperial, dissimilar sized and type conductors.
Service branch and mains cables can be 2, 3 or 4 core cables – branch joints can be supplied without requiring the mains cable to be cut (“uncut mains”) using the appropriate shearbolt mechanical connectors.
Earth continuity across wire armoured or braided cables is achieved by using copper earth braid and constant force springs.
Thorne & Derrick stock the full range of 3M Scotchcast Resin Branch Cable Joints for 600/1000V low voltage cable jointing applications for installation underground, overground or underwater – this includes both polymeric (XLPE) and paper (PILC) insulated cables.
3M Scotchcast Branch Joints are easy to install by the jointer, cost effective and time efficient for reliable power cable jointing to repair and maintain LV electrical distribution systems.
The branch resin cable joints have a one part mould body construction and a unique top seal and fixing clips, making the installation process simpler and reducing the chance of resin leakage. The LV resin joints have foam seals at each end of the mould body meaning there is no need for sawing or taping.
Resin cable joints specially modified for oil, petrochemical, gas, mines, telecoms, rail and industrial cables are available – suitable for direct burial (underground), water immersion, hazardous area zone location or onto cable containment.
