11kV 17.5kV 33kV Terminations – Heat Shrink Single Core XLPE Outdoor – Nexans TTGE1

Nexans TTGE1 is a heat shrink cable termination for use outdoors and exposed to prolonged sunshine and other weather conditions –  heat shrink is manufactured and tested to survive relative humidity, salinity and atmospheric pollution.

The heat shrinkable terminations are able to connect and terminate armoured single-core polymeric (XLPE EPR) insulated cable with copper tape or wire screens to medium/high voltage electrical equipment or overhead poles and are widely used in power utilities and in industrial applications up to 33kV.

Heat shrink terminations meet the requirements of CENELEC HD 629.1 and IEC 60502-1 for the termination of 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

Heat Shrink Cable Termination Construction


Nexans TTGE1 Heat Shrink Cable Termination

1. Cable lug (supplied on request) – both crimp cable lugs and shearbolt lugs are suitable

2. Water sealing mastic

3. Anti-tracking heat-shrinkable tube

4. Stress control heat-shrinkable tube

5. Stress control mastic

6. Anti-tracking rain sheds (pictured)

7. Earthing lug



Heat Shrink Rain Sheds

Rain Sheds

Nexans termination kit comprises of:

  • Red sealing mastic “MBA”
  • Black stress control mastic “MACDC”
  • Black stress control heat shrink tube “GT1”
  • Red antitracking heat shrink tube “GT2”
  • Earthing lug for cooper screen wires
  • Anti-tracking rain sheds

Rain Sheds – the heat shrink rain sheds (red) are lined and coated with anti-tracking erosion resistant adhesive mastic used as a creepage extender on medium voltage outdoor cable terminations.
