3M™ Cold Shrink QS-III Splice Kit 5457A-250-AL, 250 kcmil, 1 per case

3M ID  80611231467    UPC#  00051128538364    Part Number  5457A-250-AL     
3M™ 5457A Series Cold Shrink QS-III Splice Kit is an inline splice designed to join 25/28 kV jacketed concentric neutral (JCN) or concentric neutral (CN) power cables. The cold shrink design fits type MV-90 or type MV-105 cables with aluminum conductors while ensuring a quick installation and excellent cable size transitions.
  • Inline splice for joining jacketed concentric neutral (JCN) and concentric neutral (CN) power cables
  • Special electrode design of the kit reduces the electrical stress at a critical cable/splice interface
  • Designed for inline splicing, feeder and distribution circuits, size transition splicing, direct burial installations and submerged locations
  • Cable has 1.07 to 1.7-in insulation O.D.
  • Accommodates 250 kcmil size aluminum conductors
  • Silicon rubber-splice body provides good high and low temperature performance, and the EPDM rubber jacket offers physical protection
  • Rated for 25/28 kV cables
  • High-voltage, production-tested for partial discharge and AC ensure reliability
  • Meets the requirements of IEEE 404 standards
