Dead Break Elbow Connector
Euromold 676LRA Plug-In Separable Tee Connector MV HV
Nexans Euromold 676LRA elbow connectors, or bolted-tee connectors, are used to terminate MV-HV XLPE/EPR (polymeric) insulated cables up to 24kV into 600 Series Interface D Bushings with M16 bolted connections on the switchgear or transformers in accordance with CENELEC EN50180 and EN50181.
- 1250A Connector Continuous Current Rating
- 24kV Connector Maximum Voltage Rating
Euromold 676LRA is a screened separable tee connector 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
To select the correct Euromold 676LRA connector for termination of MV HV power cables with copper wire screen or tape screen to Interface D bushings (1250 Amp) full cable specification with dimensional information is required – see the Euromold 676LRA download opposite for complete technical specification of the elbow connector.
Euromold connectors should be installed only by competent jointers trained in good safety practices involving high voltage electrical equipment.
The Euromold 676LRA tee connector with 1250A current rating is designed for Interface D and covers voltages from 12kV to 24kV with a maximum conductor size of 630sqmm.
Euromold 676LRA plug-in tee connectors can be supplied as plug-in type epoxy bushings – all suitable for use with Interface D type bushings on SF6 gas-insulated switchgear.
Euromold 676LRA separable tee connectors are designed to connect all polymeric screened cables to suit CENELEC Interface Type D (1250amp) equipment bushings up to 24kV.
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 D interfaces.
