Fast Reliable Medium Voltage Connectors
Prysmian Mechanical Shearbolt Connectors are designed to cover a wide range of conductor sizes from 6 AWG to 1250 kcmil, with only five connectors. Individual sizes cover ranges from 6 AWG-3/0; 2 AWG–250 kcmil; 1/0 AWG –500 kcmil; 350–750 kcmil; and 750–1250 kcmil. The unique stepless Shearbolt design has no predetermined breaking points in the connector thread. Bolts always break flush with the surface of the connector body. The design provides excellent performance and features not found in other mechanical connectors. They meet ANSI C119.4 and withstand the 40% pull out force (ANSI Class 2) required by IEEE-404. No compression dies or mechanical crimp tooling are required for installation. Following cable preparation, simply slide the connector over the conductor and tighten the bolts until they shear off. Prysmian Mechanical Shearbolt Connectors are dual-rated (AL/CU) and tin-plated to resist corrosion. Compatible with the full line of Prysmian ElaspeedTM cold-applied splice kits, they offer the best medium voltage cable splicing solution. Ratings • ANSI C119.4-2004 • ANSI Class 2 (40% RBS) • Dual-Rated (AL/CU) Electrical Property • Current Cycle Test – Class A @ 284oF (140oC) Conductor • Mechanical Pullout Test – Class 2
The stepless Shearbolt has no pre-set shear points in the threads and makes use of the maximum number of bolt threads possible to apply a compressive force to the conductor. The stepless technology ensures that the bolt will shear off below the surface of the connector, eliminating the need for filing sharp metal edges.
As the bolt is tightened, the friction disc at the base of the bolt makes contact with the conductor and no longer rotates. The bolt rotates freely above the friction disc without putting torque on the conductor. This allows the shearbolt to apply the optimum amount of contact force without damaging even finely stranded conductors.
