Nexans Cable Joints XLPE 3 Core 11kV 24kV 33kV Cables

Nexans GTS3 is a heat shrink cable joint suitable for jointing MV HV three core polymeric cable (XLPE) to be directly buried underground – suitable for wire armoured medium/high voltage cables with conductor material copper or aluminium and a maximum operating voltage of 33kV.

The heat shrinkable cable joint is fully screened and fully submersible.

All of the heat shrink cable joint bodies of the Nexans GTS3 range are tested for AC withstand prior to leaving the factory and meet the requirements of CENELEC HD 629.2 and IEC 60502-4.
