Raychem MXSE Live End Seals for Enhanced Cable Protection
The Raychem MXSE product is designed very close to MXSU inline joint with an application range possibility from 70 to 1000mm2. No special crimping tools are required for the installation. The cable can be energised immediately after installation.
Third party damage to cable can be caused by heavy vehicles, such as excavation machinery, etc., during construction work. The live end seals allow partially installed networks to be energised, and therefore enable the detection of third party damage as soon as it occurs. The end seal protects the cable against moisture ingress.
DESIGN & FUNCTION
The end seal is designed to fit most polymeric cables up to 36kV using copper wire or tape shielding according to IEC, VDE and BS cable specs. MXSE live end seals have been designed and tested in accordance with CENELEC HD 629.1 S1 specification. The new concept is based on standard all in one MXSU inline joint kits including mechanical connector. Stress control is provided on the cable side by application of a heat shrinkable sleeve and stress grading mastic at the screen. A polypropylene insulation rod is inserted into the other connector entry. Covering the connector area also with stress grading tape, the Rayfit joint body provides the appropriate and screening. Shielding is maintained by application of copper mesh around the joint body connecting the earth wires. A heavy wall sealing sleeve with integrated hot melt adhesive provides adequate sealing and outer protection.
