5-35kV Live-front to Dead-front conversion kit for bare concentric neutral and all
extruded dielectric, jacketed power cable construction


The Innovative Power Products, Inc. LFDF series kit is a heatshrinkable system for reestablishing the insulation shield on live-front terminated cable ends. When live-front terminations or joints are to be replaced by premolded devices that require shorter cutback lengths, it is sometimes necessary to extend the cable’s shield cutback with a sealed system. A heatshrinkable conductive tubing with the same wall thickness and electrical properties as those required by AEIC CS5 & 6, extends the primary insulation shield. A heat activated sealant forms an internal seal to the cable’s semiconductive layer below the old cutback.


  • LFDF series kits are factory engineered to provide fast and easy installation with reliable performance. LFDF series kit’s performance is based on the design and testing of the IPP MVJ series joint. Electrical properties of the shielding tube are on page 29 (CST series).


  • LFDF conversion kits provide a lightweight, compact and environmentally sealed system for extending the insulation shield on all types of 5-35kV shielded power cable by up to twenty-one inches (21”). The kit is compatible with both XLPE and EPR primary insulations. LFDF series kits kits cover a wide range of conductor sizes. Four (4) kit sizes cover all 5-35kV cable sizes from #4 AWG through 1000 kcmil.
