Cold Shrink Joints 24kV

Nexans CSJA-S are single phase compact cold shrink joints – size A cable joints suits from 35sqmm to 300sqmm single core cables up to 24kV with GPH bolted type mechanical connectors meeting HD 629.1 S2 International Standards.

The CSJA-S combines cold shrink and bolted connector technologies (shearbolts) for reliable underground MV joints or connections in a small cable trench (max=1m) or in specific aerial applications.

The Nexans cold shrink cable joints have been designed to connect 24kV single core cables polymeric insulated (XLPE EPR) with cable cross sections from 35sqmm to 300sqmm whether they are aluminium or copper conductor cores on underground MV power cables.
