Gel Insulated Joints

Etelec Shark 500

SHARK® Classic Series gel insulated joints can be used to make straight connections on 0.6/1 kV single or multicore low voltage cables with up to five cores.

Thanks to the greater space available inside the joint, the versions without terminal blocks are suitable for straight connection of single-core cables, and for the connection and insulation of electronic boards and components.

The versions with terminal block allow straight connection with double insulation of cables with up to five cores and are available upon request with tin-plated aluminium connectors for copper-copper, aluminium-aluminum, and copper-aluminium connections.
