15kV Medium Voltage Termination
Class 1 Terminator for single conductor 12-17.5kV extruded dielectric shielded power cable

The Innovative Power Products MVT 1530 series Class I terminators are heatshrinkable 15kV (12-17.5kV) extruded dielectric, shielded, medium voltage power cable terminations. The MVT 1530E series terminations are for applications where the terminator is exposed to the elements such as precipitation or direct outdoor sunlight.

MVT kits provide a lightweight, compact and flexible alternative to porcelain terminators. These features allow the installation of the system in low profile switchgear and other enclosures requiring multiple cable-to-busbar connections. The MVT system does not add any significant weight to the cable, therefore no special hardware is required to support the completed termination.

  • MVT kits are factory engineered to provide fast and easy installation with reliable performance.

    All MVT kits are designed to meet or exceed the requirements of IEEE-48 for Alternating Current Cable Terminations.

  • MVT 1530 kits cover a wide range of conductor sizes and shapes. They accommodate out-of-round or off-tolerance cables in both round and sector shaped conductors. The standard kits fit all types of cable constructions, including: metallic tape shield, drain wire shield, lead covered and Unishield® power cables. Four (4) kit sizes cover all cable sizes from 4 AWG through 1000 kcmil.

Ordering Information

1. Select the kit catalog number by the cable size and dimensions. One kit contains everything needed to terminate one single-core cable end, less the connectors, for sheltered (indoor) use. A standard package contains three (3) kits. Confirm the dimensions when at the extremes of the size range.
2. Add the mod kit letter designation as needed to change the base kit:

E - sheds are required for exposed
(outdoor) environments. (Emod)
P - cable cleaning kit (Pmod)
G - sealed grounding kit (Gmod)
Example 1:
For 1/C, 2 AWG, 15kV cable to be installed
in an exposed (outdoor) environment, using
a sealed grounding kit (G mod) and a cable
