The cable joints are used to connect low, medium or high voltage cables. The type of cable joint sizes, shapes and configurations vary according to the voltage, structure, insulation and the number of cores of the cable to be jointed. The joints provide electrical insulation as well as mechanical protection and strength. The electrical connection is made in various ways and can crimping, or use of mechanical connectors, soldering, etc.
Straight joints can be used for indoor, outdoor, submerged and underground cable jointing. In the cast resin based cable joints, the polyurethane based casting resins provide mechanical protection, electrical insulation and moisture imperviousness to the joint.
