Cable Preparation Tools

for Medium & High Voltage Cable Accessories (MV HV)

Nexans 82374 is a cable jointers tool set containing specially selected cable preparation tools designed to ensure the stripping and  preparation of Medium Voltage (MV) & High Voltage (HV) power cables.

Each cable preparation tools set contains all the necessary jointing tools required in order to prepare both fully bonded and easy-peel peelable semi-conductive screened cables, typically polymeric insulated XLPE or EPR cables at 11kV/33kV – recommended for preparation of cables up to 33kV to support the installation of separable connectors including the Euromold brand manufactured by Nexans.

Supplied within a hard-wearing, foam-filled protective case to eliminate any possibility of damage when the cable jointer tools are not in use. Adopting best practices and correct usage ensures the Nexans cable preparation tools will provide long and trouble-free service of joints, terminations and connectors.

Utility cable preparation tools are used to joint, splice and terminate cable for the Electrical Power Transmission & Distribution industry – all cable jointing tools are designed and manufactured to meet specific cable application needs, including accurate removal of XLPE insulation, semi-conductive sheathing, protective jacketing cable sheaths and other materials to produce consistent, uniform preparation of cable ends for splicing and termination of medium/high voltage power cables.

A complete range of Jointers Tool Sets are available from Nexans for all 11kV/33kV/66kV cable preparation requirements to enable installation of all types of joints and terminations including Cold Shrink and heat shrink.
