ACVOKE Standard Cable Spiker

Cartridge Powered Cable Spiking Tool | For Spiking Cable up to 110mm Diameter | LV MV HV up to 400kV

The ACVOKE standard cable spiker, manufactured by Accles & Shelvoke, is a high quality safety tool used worldwide.

This cable spiker is a cartridge powered tool which, when fired, drives a steel spike through high voltage electricity cables short circuiting the power and making the cable dead and therefore safe to carry out fault repair working or cable jointing & terminating.

The spiking tool is easy to assemble and simple to operate, while having the power to spike cables of up to 110mm diameter. It is suitable for penetrating every form of normally applied cable coverings with up to .44″ calibre cartridge in four strengths.

The cable spiking tool is suitable for use with all types and voltages of power cable including single and multiple conductor laminated, polymeric, elastomeric, unshielded, shielded, concentric neutral, interlock armoured, steel wire armoured, leaded covered etc – designs in either fixed or portable installations.

For safety, a long lanyard and release pin completely separates the operator from the spiking tools at the moment of firing and a unique self-setting safety system eliminates the risk of the operator inadvertently firing the tool when setting up.

ACVOKE cable spikers are also available as a Mini Cable Spiker for single and multicore polymeric cables up to 75mm and a Heavy-Duty Cable Spiker for cables up to 150mm diameter supplying voltages up to 400KV.
