Transmission and Distribution World has highlighted our TTDC connector line with the article Spacer Systems Get a New Connector - A new insulation piercing connector is created through a research and development program, followed by utility trials.
The article states, "Both CPFL and Emera Maine began searching for an alternative interconnection solution that would avoid cable stripping and secure a watertight covering for the connector. Both were also committed to conducting field trials to collect feedback data from field crews to assess the installation experiences and electrical performance of alternative connector solutions. At completion of the field trials, both utilities selected IPCs for their MVCC networks."
Sicame creates new connectors. "The new IPCs, developed by Sicame for medium-voltage spacer systems, meet all the requirements and expectations of Emera Maine and CPFL, despite the utilities different environments, networks and working methods. Because of their wide cable range and watertight connection area, the IPCs can be used to connect all types and configurations of networks.
IPCs now offer the easiest and safest solution on the market for field crew installation. With enhanced anti-tracking characteristics, IPCs also offer the assurance of a consistent, robust and stable connection for the lifetime of the network, even when installed in the toughest environments."
