“TE Connectivity (TE) is further expanding its range of exclusive plug connectors with the new generation of TE Raychem shielded elbow and straight RSES/RSSS plug connectors.
“TE Rayschem’s RSES/RSSS shielded elbow and straight socket couplings are designed to connect single core plastic cables to medium voltage gas insulated circuit breakers and other devices using type “A” insulators (according to EN 50180 / EN 50181) for 250A DC. RSES and RSSS socket connectors comply with CENELEC HD 629.1 S2 02/2006 + A1: 2008 and are tested for mains voltages up to 24 kV.
Using a durable EPDM polymer composite for the outer casing and modified silicone rubber for the inner insulation, RSES and RSSS is suitable for indoor and outdoor installation in the harshest environmental conditions. At the same time, exceptional electrical properties are guaranteed.
The socket sleeves are shielded and earthed by an external conductive casing layer, ensuring safe and reliable operation. In addition, an improved adapter connection mechanism with an integrated seal speeds up and simplifies the installation process.
With the use of cable gates with breakaway heads, the RSES and RSSS socket couplings are an easy and quick-to-install product for a wide range of cable cross-sections (16 to 150 mm2.) The TE RSES and RSSS socket couplings can be supplied with a capacitive voltage measuring (VD) point to detect the presence of voltage on the cable network, or with a metallic housing (MH) to provide an additional level of safety against electric shock.
Based on the indicators below, TE´s RSES and RSSS sockets have been tested by international requirements (e.g. CENELEC HD 629.1 S2 02/2006 + A1: 2008). According to the indicators shown in the table, the cable lugs have been tested for aluminum and copper conductors according to IEC 61238-1.
