Design

Separable connector comprising:

1. Conductive EPDM insert.

2. Conductive EPDM jacket.

3. Insulating EPDM layer moulded between the insert and the jacket.

4. Type C - 630 A interface as described by CENELEC EN 50180 and 50181.

5. Conductor connector.

6. Basic insulating plug (with VD point).

7. Cable reducer.

8. Conductive rubber cap.

9. Clamping screw.

10. Earthing lead.

The screen break design enables cable outer sheath testing without removing or dismantling the connector.

3. Apply a tape marker around the outer sheath 70 mm from the edge. For indoor applications, bend the screen wires back over the outer sheath and proceed to step no. 4. FOR OUTDOOR APPLICATIONS :

- Wrap one layer of water sealing mastic (type MWS) around the outer sheath, flush with the end (25 mm minimum width). Completely encircle the cable. - Bend the screen wires back over the mastic and along the outer sheath, pressing them into the mastic. IMPORTANT: screen wires should not touch each other when pressed into the mastic to prevent water ingress.

4. Cut the cable to a point 235 mm from the outer sheath.

4. Remove field control mastic strip, type MFC, from coated paper.

5. Slightly stretch one end of the strip, making sure not to break it.

6. Apply the mastic, covering approximately 5 mm of the extruded semi-conductive screen and 5 mm of the core

insulation.

7. Push the mastic in place while stretching it progressively until both ends overlap and tear-off the excess mastic.

8. Using the coated side of the paper, squeeze the mastic tightly in place on the step of the semi-conductive screen.

1. Clean and lightly lubricate* the inside surface of the connector housing and outer surface of the cable reducer.

2. Check if the angle of the tee connector housing is correct relative to the palm of the crimp contact and, whilst

preventing the cable reducer from further movement down the cable, gently slide the housing on the cable until it

cannot advance any further.

3. Make sure the cable reducer stays in place during installation and remove tape marker from the cable.

1. Bend back the screen wires along the outer

sheath to form a pig tail.

2. Connect earthing lead and screen wires to the

system earth.

NOTE :

A connector/bushing mated combination should not be allowed to carry the full weight of the cable. Therefore it is necessary to clamp the cable as close as possible to the connector.

IMPORTANT NOTES :

- In order to achieve the correct applied torque ensure that there is no lubricant on the threaded parts.

- Never disconnect the connector from energised equipment nor energise a disconnected connector without previously installing on its appropriate corresponding mating part.

- Do not allow hydrocarbon oils or solvents to contaminate the E.P.D.M. rubber. In the event of contamination, wipe the surface clean with a dry cloth.
