GS-3 / GS-4 Suspension Clamps in networks 15kV – 52kV
The SPSC13 protective cover is designed to effectively cover effectively cover the GS-3 and GS-4 type ball joints and suspension clamps for a conductor size range of up to 28 mm, on lines up to Um 52kV.
The silicone thickness used is 3.5 mm, conferring the device the necessary dielectric strength and ensuring its enduring effective performance .
Its clamshell opening design, with 14 locking points by means of pins, (preinstalled on each device), allows easy installation by hand with no tools on existing lines. Two water draining holes with an angular depression have been incorporated to minimise potential water ingress. (Fig. 1) .
Advantages: The design features to avoid moisture condensation and prevent rainwater ingress caused by the vertical installation of these clamp covers are reinforced by the cone-shaped design of the top part of the device (Fig.2 ), which can be sealed, depending on the type of insulator present on the line, using silicone tape.
