Overview

Accessories play a vital role in a power system. Prysmian has gained expertise in the design, manufacture, testing and installation of products across all voltages during many years of partnership with customers.

 

Prysmian's very long and successful experience in Low & Medium Voltage cable systems has led to the development of a comprehensive range of Low & Medium Voltage accessories. Prysmian offers a comprehensive range of accessories for glanding, jointing, connecting and terminating.

The range includes joints (also transition, trifurcating and branch joints), terminations (both for indoor and outdoor use), connectors, separable connectors, glands, cleats and fixings, low voltage link boxes, tooling and resins. Prysmian provides also engineering services capable of fulfilling any power system specifications or requirements and of delivering customised solutions.

FOCUS ON

Cleats and resin
for LV applications

Within the comprehensive portfolio of accessories offered by Prysmian Group, two main families should be highlighted when it comes to LV applications: Cleats and Resin (compound).

Most people in the industry would consider cleats’ main objective to fix or support cable structures, when the real issue Prysmian is trying to address is a possible damage to the whole system, coming from an unlikely cable failure or short-circuit, which could harm costly devices that would, however, remain untouched by the restricting action of Prysmian cleats. 

Should such an event occur in a windfarm, for instance, this solution proves to be key for end users or energy contractors, given the presence of many expensive devices throughout the installation and the possibility of a shutdown is, therefore, not worth taking the risk.
Prysmian’s variety of resin compounds allows customers to protect mechanically any of their devices; whether they want to bury a joint, or fill a link box with a reliable, low viscosity (hence no voids) isocyanate free material, there will always be a resin of their choice.

Elaspeed TM

ElaspeedTM joints utilize cold shrink EPDM technology and are widely recognized as the leading edge “delivery system” for Medium Voltage cable accessories. It’s a simple, robust, reliable, user- friendly, safe and flexible solution.
No special tools or torches are required. Cold shrinking the joint ensures concentric accessory recovery. Even in tight installation spaces, Elaspeed™ joints recover to give consistent insulation wall thickness. Its flexible design allows to offer straight joint, transition joint, branch joint and stop ends solution s for one-core and three core cables.
Developed at the end of 1994, more than 3 million of pieces have been installed. High reliability is guaranteed and confirmed by an excellent track record.
