Euromold 489TB Tee Connector 11kV 33kV 42kV

Euromold 489TB is a screened separable tee connector (bolted type) specified to terminate and connect medium/high voltage cables in the following voltage classes:

  • 6/10 (12) kV
  • 6.35/11 (12) kV
  • 8.7/15 (17.5) kV
  • 12/20 (24) kV
  • 12.7/22 (24) kV
  • 18/30 (36) kV
  • 19/33 (36) kV
  • 20.8/36 (42) kV

The Euromold 489TB tee connector with 630A – 1250A current rating is designed for Interface C and covers voltages from 12kV to 42kV with a maximum conductor size of 1200sqmm.

Euromold 489TB plug-in tee connectors can be supplied as a straight connector (450SR) or a coupling connector (800PB804PB or 809PB) and with surge arresters (800SA or 300SA) – all suitable for use with Interface C Compact type bushings on SF6 gas-insulated switchgear.

Euromold 489TB tee connectors are designed to connect all polymeric screened cables to suit CENELEC Interface Type C (630-1250amp) equipment bushings up to 42kV.

Designed to connect polymeric insulated cables with a copper wire screen but can be used on wire armoured, copper tape screen cables with the use of additional screen earth kits and accessories.

Connector accessories include: dead-end receptacle, dead-end plug, stand-off plug and earthing plug for type C Compact interfaces.

Euromold 489TB Tee Connector 11kV 33kV 42kV - Design

Euromold 489TB Tee 11kV 33kV 42kV – Design

Separable tee connector comprising:

  1. Conductive EPDM insert.
  2. Conductive EPDM jacket.
  3. Insulating EPDM layer moulded between the insert and the jacket.
  4. Type C – interface as described by CENELEC EN 50180 and 50181.
  5. Conductor connector.
  6. Basic insulating plug (with VD point).
  7. Cable reducer.
  8. Conductive rubber cap.
  9. Stud+nut+washer.
  10. Earthing lead.

The thick conductive EPDM jacket provides a safe to touch screen which ensures safety for personnel, cables and electrical equipment in medium/high voltage installations. The screen break design enables cable outer sheath testing without removing or dismantling the connector.
