The 3M™ 200 Amp Industrial Loadbreak Elbow is a fully shielded and insulated plug-in termination for connecting underground cable to transformers, switchgear and junctions equipped with loadbreak bushings.
The elbow and the bushing insert comprise the essential components of all loadbreak connections. The 5810 and 5811 series kits are designed for use on Tape Shield, Wire Shield, UniShield® and Jacketed Concentric Neutral types of cables. The seal to each of these cable types is accomplished by use of a specially designed cold shrink tube. This tube seals from the bottom of the elbow to the cable. Also included in the kit are all the ground assemblies necessary to ground both the cable and the elbow. The loadbreak elbows are molded using high quality peroxide-cured EPDM insulation. Standard features include a coppertop connector, tin plated copper loadbreak probe with an ablative arc-follower tip, stainless steel reinforced pulling-eye and a capacitive test point. Cable ranges are sized to accept a wider range of cable diameters for a given size elbow. The wider cable ranges increase installation flexibility. The coppertop compression connector is a standard item to transition from the cable to the loadbreak probe. An aluminum crimp barrel is inertia-welded to a copper lug. The aluminum barrel makes the connector easy to crimp and the copper lug ensures a reliable, tight, cool operating connection with the loadbreak probe. Meets requirements of ANSI/IEEE Standard 386.
