High Voltage Cable Joints & Accessories For Extruded Cables

The Prysmian CLICK-FIT® concept is a unique “Plugin-System” designed to connect (Extra) high voltage extruded cables from 72kV to 550kV. This unique plug-in-system guarantees a high reliability combined with fast, simple and man independent installation techniques.

The pre-moulded insulating and stress control body is made of high-quality material (HTV Silicone Rubber), which has excellent insulating and highly reliably mechanical features. The integrated semi-conductive (silicone rubber) stress cone and shielding electrode ensure a smoothly distributed electrical field control.

The outer ends of the high voltage power cables can be “factory-prepared” – this means they will be accommodated with unique plugs, which accelerates the installation of cable accessories in the field, by simply plugging-in the prepared cable ends into the cable joints and terminations.

The CLICK-FIT® locking mechanism provides a core lock inside the cable joints and terminations.

FACTORY PREPARED CLICK-FIT® CABLE ENDS

Connect & Joint High Voltage Cable Systems

The unique CLICK-FIT® from Prysmian concept allows for the cable end to be prepared in the factory. Connectors are installed on the cables after preparation and tested together with the cable. Mechanical protection during transportation is realised by a special protection sleeve with integrated pulling eye

CLICK-FIT® Cable Joints

The CLICK-FIT® joint is a prefabricated and factory pre-tested joint, designed to connect two high voltage cables with extruded insulation. The cable ends, provided with CLICK-FIT® plugs, are inserted into the silicone rubber insulating body and connected in the middle by means of silver plated electrical contacts. In the middle of the joint an integrated metallic grooved ring locks the position of the plugs through a spring-loaded bayonet mechanism.

The CLICK-FIT® plug is connected to the cable by means of compression, MIG-welding or shearoff bolts. To protect the joint different types of covering are available. The standard joint covering is based on a copper casing with a polymeric sheathing. Optionally, a polymeric protective casing with filling compound is available. The joint covering ensures mechanical protection, protection against moisture ingress and external damages. The joint is fully submersible in water.

CLICK-FIT® Joint

  • Straight joints as well as joints with integrated screen interruption for cross bonding purposes
  • In the case of screen interruption, the metal joint casing comes with an epoxy-insulating ring
  • Installation procedures and tools for various site conditions (e.g. manhole, open trench, etc.)
  • Reduction of overall installation time and cost by CLICK-FIT® plug in concept

CLICK-FIT® Asymmetrical Transition Cable Joint

  • Design allows easy engineering solutions for jointing extruded cables of different construction
  • Different conductor cross sections
  • Different conductor materials (Cu/Al)
  • Different insulation diameters (asymmetrical) also to connect different cable voltage classes
  • Different cable sheathing (e.g. Pb/WAS/CWS/CAS)

CLICK-FIT® CONNECTORS

The CLICK-FIT® connector is a dry type prefabricated and pre-tested sealing end, designed to connect high voltage cables into GIS or Transformers. The cable ends, provided with CLICK FIT® plugs, are inserted into the silicone rubber insulating body and connected by means of silver plated electrical contacts.

An integrated metallic grooved ring locks the position of the plugs through a spring-loaded bayonet mechanism. The CLICK-FIT® plug is connected to the cable by means of compression, MIG-welding or shear-off bolts. Standard offer is dry design alternatively fluid-filled design is available.

  • Applicable for gas insulated switch gear (GIS) and transformer (TRAFO) – dimensions and scope of delivery according to IEC 62271-209 (previously IEC 60859:1999) and EN50299
  • Vertical or horizontal installation
  • Epoxy Insulators (cones) can be installed separately in the GIS Switch gear or transformer
  • Reduction of overall installation time and cost by CLICK-FIT® plug in concept
  • Available in fluid filled version

OUTDOOR Cable TERMINATIONS

The CLICK-FIT® outdoor composite terminations connect extruded cables to outdoor equipment and overhead lines. Cable ends connection is by means of a CLICK-FIT® plug-in system. The CLICK-FIT® plug is connected to the cable by means of compression, MIG-welding or shear-off bolts, which allows for reduction of overall installation time and cost. Standard offer is with composite insulator; porcelain insulator is available on demand.

  • Insulator of glass fibre reinforced epoxy resin tube, covered with silicone rubber sheds
  • Excellent environmental properties by water repelling silicone outer layer and sheds
  • Standard creeping distance c.a. 21 mm/kV (increased creeping distance available)
  • Vertical or horizontal installation
  • Basic or none scaffolding and protection needed during installation
  • Reduction of overall installation time and cost by simple installation procedure and low weight composite insulators
  • Porcelain termination available on request

Traditional CLICK-FIT® composite termination is fluid-filled design, filled with unpressurised insulating oil for all voltage levels (no oil or gas pressure monitoring system required).
The CLICK-FIT® composite termination can be provided also in dry type version:

  • Dry type prefabricated and pre-tested outdoor termination.
  • Self-supporting prefabricated insulator, covered with silicone rubber sheds
