High Voltage Terminations: Shielded vs Non-Shielded in Raychem Heat Shrink Sleeves

     When using Raychem high voltage terminations (meaning great than 1000 volts for the sake of this discussion) it is vital that we pair the correct Raychem termination kits so that it matches the cable type it is to be used with.  There are a few "tricks of the trade" that I will be discussing over the course of the next few weeks.

     Step 1:  We ask the customer, "is the cable shielded or non-shielded?"

     If the answer is 'shielded' - that tells us we will be following a line of questioning that will help us determine specifically which HVT product is correct for their application.

     If the answer is 'non-shielded' that tells us that our subsequent questions will help us determine specifically which of the HVT-50 series heat shrink sleeve terminations we will require.

Shielded = HVT
Non-Shielded = HVT-50

Stay tuned tomorrow for "Step 2"

  1. Th overall discussion is very much informative about the cable High Voltage Terminations ends.
    Heat-shrink tubing is produced from a thermoplastic material.Materials used are polyolefin, PVC, neoprene and silicone elastomer.
    need more info on manufacturing and supplying of Heat- shrink tubing.
