The 3M™ Cold Shrink QS-III 3/C Armored or Non-Armored Splice Kits 5797A-MT and 5798A-MT Series are designed for splicing 3/C, armored and nonarmored, shielded power cables. The kits are rated for use on 35 kV cables with conductor sizes from 1/0 AWG-1000 kcmil (60-500 mm²).
The kits are designed to be used with 3M™ Scotchlok™ Connectors 10000 and 20000 Series or other UL listed inline compression connectors that fit within the dimension limits listed in the Connector Dimensional Requirements Table on the data sheet. The splice utilizes several technologies to accommodate the various functions of a 3/C shielded power cable: 3M™ Cold Shrink QS-III Splice Bodies, Scotch® Tapes for moisture sealing, Constant Force Springs for connecting ground braid jumpers and Armorcast for replacing the cable armor and/or jacket. The completed splice is designed for use in cable trays, weather exposed or direct burial locations. Meets the requirements of IEEE 404. Connectors are not included in the kit and must be ordered separately. Note: When making a trifurcating splice, the 3M™ Cold Shrink MT-E Trifurcating Accessory Kit must be used along with the splice kit. Note: Cable sizes shown below are for standard insulation thickness. Final determining factor is cable insulation O.D.
