Transformer is a vital component of a distribution system. It has to deliver Reliable Power in a safe & efficient manner. However, 8% of the transformers installed worldwide fail on account of improper connector systems.
A conventional connector system used for LV cable connection, deploys crimping and tightening of the bolts. Over a period, it leads to a loose electrical contact which causes sparks and hot spots. The contact resistance is high which adds to the losses of ailing utilities. The weight of the connector causes mechanical strains on the bushing of the transformer, leading to oil leakages.Raychem's TRAFOCONNECT is engineered to keep the contact resistance low for the lifetime of the transformer. Its lighter & pretty simple to install as it uses the modern shear bolt technology, hence avoiding the skill & tool dependent crimping methodology. It significantly increases the reliability of the transformer.
