33kV Heatshrink Cable Joints

Nexans GTS1 is a heat shrink cable joint suitable for jointing MV HV single core polymeric cable (XLPE) to be directly buried under or above ground.

These 33kV cable joints are suitable for use with copper tape screened as well as copper wire screened cables – no further earthing device is necessary. The heat shrinkable cable joint is fully screened and fully submersible and can be supplied with all common types of conductor connectors.

Nexans GTS1 Heat Shrink Joints

Nexans GTS heat shrink cable joints meet the requirements of CENELEC HD 629.2 and IEC 60502-4 standards.

GTS cable joints, manufactured by Nexans are suited to use with other cable types, contact T&D for more information.
