SHARK® Classic Series
Gel insulated joints for straight connections

SHARK® Classic Series gel insulated joints can be used to make straight connections on 0.6/1kV
single or multicore low voltage cables with up to four cores.
Thanks to the greater space available inside the joint, the versions without terminal blocks are suitable for the straight connection of single-core cables, and for the connection and insulation of electronic boards and components.
The versions with terminal block allow the straight connection with double insulation of cables with up to five cores and are available with tin-plated aluminium connectors for copper-copper, aluminium-aluminum, and copper-aluminium connections on request.
