15kV RANGE – 15,000 Volts, 800Amps, IP68, open cut coupler with Fibber Optic
The 15kV Fiber Optic range was inspired by the 15kV, 4 Bolt coupler.
Traditionally fibre optic cables were run in a separate cable to the power cable or it is incorporated into the power cable but the fibres are taken out of the coupler and is spliced into a junction box on the side.
To achieve a perfect solution for a fibber optic coupler system, KonNx took it’s world proven high voltage coupler design and a rugged military expanded beam fibber optic system and blended the two together.
The results of this is a high voltage fibber optic system with an electrical design that has a continued earth shield segregation of its three phases which maintains a symmetrical radial distribution of voltage stress. This eliminates the risk of a phase to phase fault, with the rugged expanded beam fibber optic connection which gives you a genderless coupler with its phases, pilot, earth and fibber optics all internal.
This design has been in service since 2015.
