3/C, 8kV Medium Voltage Termination with Boot
Class 1 Terminator for 3/C 7.2-11kV extruded dielectric, shielded power cable with up to 3 grounds

The Innovative Power Products MVT 40810 series Class I termination kits are heatshrinkable terminators for three-core armored or unarmored 8kV (7.2-11kV), extruded dielectric, shielded, medium voltage cables with or without ground wires. The MVT 40810E series terminations are for applications where the terminators are exposed to the elements such as precipitation or direct outdoor sunlight.

MVT 40810 series kits provide a lightweight compact alternative to other three-core termination methods. There are no compounds to mix and pour and no labor-intensive taping procedures. MVT 40810 series terminators provide a rugged, low cost and reliable cable termination.

  • MVT 40810 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.

  • The MVT 40810 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 three-core cable constructions with or without ground wires, including: metallic tape shield, drain wire shielded, lead covered and Unishield® power cables. MVT 40810 series kits can be used on armored cables when no separate armor terminator is used. These kits are based on the single-core MVT 0830 series kits with additional components to convert the three-core cable into three, individual single cores. The forty-eight inch (48”) tail length allows for easy training of the termination in switchgear or at the riser in overhead transition applications. Four (4) kit sizes cover cable sizes from 4 AWG through 1000 kcmil.
