Branching sleeves for Cu conductors 6-300 mm², made of copper 99.95%.
With a branching sleeve, type C, one splices and branches earth wires used in e.g. underground earth wire networks and other earthing and potential equalisation applications. Crimping of the C sleeves is done with Elpress mechanical, manual, battery-powered and/or plug-in hydraulic crimping tools for easy handling and rapid work. The products are tested with short circuit tests according to the IEC 61238-1 standard
Elpress logotype is included on the marking, also the die number. The other side of the C sleeve is marked with the size of the Cu wire that fits and the total area. When an adequate crimping is done with the right tool, Elpress' crimping dies make an impression on the sleeve so that all connections can be checked afterwards.
In the tools, there is a built-in full closure system that ensures that the entire crimping process is completed - a prerequisite for professional and quality-assured work.
All Elpress branch sleeves are based on the patented solution of the previous C89 sleeve. The solution means that the edges of the sleeve overlap after the contact crimping has been done. This patented solution allows multiple joint combinations to be used in one and the same sleeve.
In the autumn of 2018, the program was updated by C-sleeves, where the number of sleeves was compressed from 41 to today being 8 sleeves. The number of dies needed to perform the contact crimping has also been reduced (BC16, BC11 and BC4 are deleted). The sleeves C6-10, C16-25, C25-50 (formerly C89) and C50-70 are tin plated and have a different appearance than our other C-sleeves.
System Elpress symbolises Elpress’ guiding principles of safety and quality. These principles are reflected in our certified solutions, training courses and preventive maintenance in the form of service.
