Introduction Product Guide PG-CA provides an easy-to-use, comprehensive listing of Elastimold products for 5kV thru 35kV underground power distribution systems. Included are separable elbow connectors, CABLE joints, terminations and other CABLE accessory components. This catalog incorporates information relative to product application, ratings and selection. The Thomas & Betts Elastimold brand is recognized as the leading producer of premolded CABLE accessory components worldwide. Utilizing specially formulated materials with 100% peroxide-cured insulation and shielding, Elastimold products represent the state-of-the-art in premolded process technology. Durable, quality construction and non-degrading, high-reliability, maintenance-free performance is assured when specifying Elastimold products.
2 Elastimold's broad line of premolded products offers significant advantages over field-fabricated and other alternatives, including: 100% factory assurance testing prior to delivery and installation;. simplified, single-piece construction with built-in insulating, shielding and sealing surfaces; ease of installation with no special skills or tools required; and compact, lightweight, durable designs for easy handling and application. Separable Elbow Connectors and their related ACCESSORIES are available in 200 Amp loadbreak, 200 Amp deadbreak and 600 Amp deadbreak styles. Rated for padmount, subsurface, vault, indoor, outdoor and other applications, units feature interchangeable interfaces which can be easily engaged or separated to provide a convenient method to connect or disconnect CABLE and equipment in a distribution system. CABLE Joints are available in permanently crimped or bolted (separable). connector styles. Permanently crimped units are rated the same as the CABLE they are connecting and are available for all applications including direct buried.
3 CABLE Terminations are available in single-piece or modular designs. Rated for indoor, outdoor or padmount applications, units allow connection and transition from shielded underground cables to bare overhead conductors and live-front equipment. Elastimold Special Component Services Group provides custom products tailored to specific application requirements. Please contact the factory for further information regarding this service.

7 For application on ungrounded WYE or delta systems, the next higher voltage class product is recommended. Examples: 5kV ungrounded: use 15kV class products; 15kV ungrounded: use 25kV class products; 25kV ungrounded: use 35kV class products. 2. Products are designed and constructed for all applications including padmount, subsurface, vault, indoor, outdoor, direct sunlight, direct buried and continuously submerged in water. 3. Products are designed and rated for ambient temperatures of -40 C to +65 C. It is recommended that loadbreak connectors be hotstick operated at -20 C to +65 C ambient temperature range and at altitudes not exceeding 6000 feet. 2 Thomas & Betts Corporation 8155 T&B Boulevard Memphis, TN 38125 PG-CA-1109.
