The Shield Adapter Kit design provides a fault current capacity of 600 Amps on 15–35 kV class cables. These cold shrink kits require no heat, special tools or special skills to install. The cold shrink kits come complete with all necessary components (except the cable accessory) and are installed in a few simple steps. We’ve even attached a “bleeder wire” to the ground strap eliminating the need for additional wire and connectors. Each kit contains enough material to ground one cable accessory.
