Introduction
This section provides an easy-to-use, comprehensive listing of Elastimold® products for
5 kV thru 35 kV underground power distribution systems. Included are separable elbow
connectors, cable joints, terminations and other cable accessory components. This
catalogue incorporates information relative to product application, ratings and selection.
The Thomas & Betts Elastimold® brand is recognized as the leading producer of premolded
cable accessory components worldwide. Utilizing specially formulated materials with 100%
peroxide-cured insulation and shielding, Elastimold products represent the state-of-the-art
in premolded process technology. Durable, quality construction and non-degrading,
high-reliability, maintenance-free performance is assured when specifying Elastimold
products.
Elastimold’s broad line of premolded products offers significant advantages over
field-fabricated and other alternatives, including: 100% factory assurance testing prior to
delivery and installation; simplified, single-piece construction with built-in insulating,
shielding and sealing surfaces; ease of installation with no special skills or tools required;
and compact, lightweight, durable designs for easy handling and application.
Separable Elbow Connectors and their related accessories are available in
200 A loadbreak, 200 A deadbreak and 600 A deadbreak styles. Rated for padmount,
subsurface, vault, indoor, outdoor and other applications, units feature interchangeable
interfaces which can be easily engaged or separated to provide a convenient method to
connect or disconnect cable and equipment in a distribution system.
Cable Joints are available in permanently crimped or bolted (separable) connector
styles. Permanently crimped units are rated the same as the cable they are connecting
and are available for all applications including direct buried.
Cable Terminations are available in single-piece or modular designs. Rated for indoor,
outdoor or padmount applications, units allow connection and transition from shielded
underground cables to bare overhead conductors and live-front equipment.
Elastimold Special Component Services Group provides custom products
tailored to specific application requirements. Please contact the factory for further
information regarding this service. For Surge Arresters see pages A80 to A85 and Fused

on primary feeder and network circuits. Designs accommodate large
conductors and feature bolted connections and deadfront modular
construction for maximum reliability, performance and versatility.
DE-ENERGIZED connectors can be quickly and easily connected and
disconnected using standard hand tools and equipment in accordance
with accepted operating practices. Optional accessories allow visible
external separation, by-pass, isolation, dead-ending, grounding, and
testing as well as adding taps, surge arresters and circuit protection.
Hotstick operable and separable joint systems are shown on
pages A16 thru A21.

600 Series Deadbreak – Cam-Op™, Link-Op™
Elastimold® 600 Series Cam-Op™, and Link-Op™ deadbreak
connector systems incorporate provisions for hotstick operation of
DE-ENERGIZED primary feeder or network circuits. Configurations allow
external visible break, testing, grounding and isolation. Retrofit kits allow
upgrading existing equipment.
Cam-Op systems utilize pin and socket connectors. Link-Op connectors
are bolted and installed using torque controlled tools. Either system can
be retrofitted to existing equipment.
The Cam-Op and Link-Op connectors are unique, allowing all hotstick
operations to be completed without moving the cable, an important
consideration when large, stiff cables prohibit movement.
The Cam-Op connector is easily installed or removed by hotstick
operation of the cam action disconnect lever.

INSULATION DIAMETER SELECTION GUIDE
Elastimold Elbows, cable joints and terminations are designed for application on XLP, EPR and other solid dielectric insulated power cables.
These components are constructed of molded elastomer and rely on an interference fit with the cable insulation diameter in order to maintain
proper dielectric strength, creep path integrity and a water seal. Elastimold components are available in a wide range of sizes in order to
accommodate a variety of cable insulation diameters.
Selection of size-sensitive components requires determining the cable insulation diameter.
This can be done in several ways:
A. Refer to the cable manufacturer’s spec sheet for dimensions.
B. Measure the cable.
C. If the cable conforms to AEIC or ICEA standards and is:
1.
15 kV, 175 mil wall thickness, use the table on page A35.
2.
15 kV, 220 mil wall thickness, use the table on page A36.
3.
25 kV, 260 mil wall thickness, use the table on page A36.
4.
35 kV, 345 mil wall thickness, use the table on page A37.
After the cable insulation diameter minimum and maximum has been determined:
1.
Locate the W table indicated in the Cat. No. selection chart.
2.
Complete the ordering information by selecting and inserting the symbol (given in the W table) into the Cat. No.
Ordering Examples
AEIC
To complete the information required to order a K655LR-W0X elbow
for use on standard AEIC 1000 kcmil compressed stranding
aluminum 25 kV cable with .260 inch thick insulation wall:
A. Determine that the insulation diameter (for AEIC cable in
the table on pages A35-A37) is 1.645 – 1.770 in.
B. For this elbow, the Cat. No. selection chart on page A13
indicates to use table W7 for elbow sizing and table X6 for
connector sizing.
C. From table W7 the symbol for W is N.
D. From table X6 the symbol for X is 410.
E. The completed Cat. No. therefore is K655LR-N0410.
w w w. tnb.c a
ICEA
To complete the information required to order a K655LR-W0X elbow
for use on standard ICEA 1000 kcmil compressed stranding aluminum
25 kV cable with .260 inch thick insulation wall:
A. Determine that the insulation diameter (for ICEA cable in
the table on pages A35-A37) is 1.645 – 1.740 in.
B. For this elbow, the Cat. No. selection chart on page A13
indicates to use table W7 for elbow sizing and table X6 for
connector sizing.
C. From table W7 the symbol for W is N.
D. From table X6 the symbol for X is 410.
E. The completed Cat. No. therefore is K655LR-N0410.

CONNECTOR SELECTION GUIDE
Elastimold® elbows, cable joints and terminations are furnished with crimp style
cable connectors. As standard, these connectors are constructed with a tin-plated
aluminum barrel filled with an oxide inhibitor. Most aluminum barrel connectors are
universal and are designed for use on either aluminum or copper conductor cable.
When specified, all copper crimp style connectors can be furnished. These
connectors are only for use on copper conductor cable and are not for use with
aluminum conductor cables. Bi-metallic connectors are constructed with a copper
top and an aluminum barrel. Bi-metal connectors can be used on either aluminum or
copper conductor cable and are furnished as standard with 200 A Loadbreak Elbows,
200 A Deadbreak Elbows, and PCT, 16 THG or MTG terminators with rod connectors.
Aluminum connectors used in PCJ Cable Joints are rated as follows:
• Aluminum conductor to aluminum conductor, cable rated
• Aluminum conductor to copper conductor, cable rated equal to the
aluminum cable
Copper connectors used in PCJ Cable Joints are rated as follows:
• Copper conductor to copper conductor, cable rated
Selection and ordering the proper crimp connector requires determining
information relative to the cable conductor as follows:
A. Conductor size in AWG or kcmil
B. Conductor type (stranded, compressed, compact or solid)
C. Conductor material (aluminum or copper)
After the cable conductor information has been determined:
1. Locate the X table indicated in the Cat. No. selection chart.
2. Complete the ordering information by selecting and inserting the symbol
(given in the X table) into the Cat. No.
See the Ordering Example on page A33 for further information.

• IEEE 404 rated shrink-fit cable joint
SFJ415
Shrink-Fit Cable Joint
For over 50 years, the Elastimold® brand has been associated with reliable, high-quality,
pre-molded power cable splices that are designed to stand the rigors of the toughest utility
applications. These products provide a cost-effective method to splice medium voltage cables
using a “push-on” motion, and allowing cable neutrals to be solidly connected across the body
of the splice without the use of any external braids. For those who prefer a more range-taking
solution without the use of any physical force to install, the only options available have been
cumbersome heat-shrink products that require multiple steps and the use of an open flame that
may not result in uniform cable coverage, or over-designed cold-shrink products that either use
awkward, entangling ripcords or expensive braid/jacket combinations that do not offer the ability
to solidly connect neutrals across the splice.
Now there’s a faster and easier way to splice medium-voltage cables — one that combines all
of the convenience and flexibility of a pre-molded splice, with the range-taking ease of
installation offered in a cold- or heat-shrink product, but without the use of ripcords, heat or
excessive force. Introducing, the NEW Elastimold® Shrink-Fit Cable Joints from Thomas & Betts!
Disposable four-piece plastic support core
The Shrink-Fit Cable Joints are made of the same molded EPDM elastomer as our other
Elastimold® cable accessories. This high-performance material offers more durability than
silicone for direct burial. The joints feature a four-piece plastic support core, which is placed over
the cable for installation of the splice. The support core is then easily removed with the supplied
tool, allowing the elastomer joint to contour over the spliced cable for a uniform seal every time.
Each Elastimold® Shrink-Fit Cable Joint covers a wide range of cable sizes, features an
insulated, semi-conductive shield and can be used with either a standard aluminum or optional
copper compression splice. Optional kits are available for neutral, shielding and jacket
restoration.

Cable Accessories
Ranger2™ Terminations
Overview
Elastimold® Ranger2TM Terminations are specifically designed for use on 15 thru 35 kV, XLP or
EPR insulated, underground power distribution cable systems. Units allow proper transition and
connection of the underground cable system to bare overhead conductors and live front
equipment. Applications include indoor, outdoor, riser pole, padmounted and other live front or
weather exposed installations. Designs use advanced silicone rubber insulating materials to
provide necessary creep, strike, weather sealing and contamination resistance, assuring proper
performance in the most severe conditions. The grey color blends in with outdoor environments.
Ranger2 Terminations support a wide application range with only three sizes required to cover
#2 AWG through 1250 kcmil cables. The single-piece 15 kV and 25 kV shrink-fit design makes
installation effortless, and the two-piece 35 kV design facilitates easier core removal. Simply
position the terminator on the prepared cable and remove the center core. Units are compact
and lightweight, allowing installation in restricted spaces and free-hanging applications.
Silicone Polymer Housings
The R2T and R2IT terminations are manufactured using an optimized weather-resistant silicone formulation. The housing offers superior cable
sealing and voltage withstand characteristics. Elastimold terminations meet or exceed all requirements of IEEE Standard 48 for Class 1 outdoor
or Class 2 indoor terminations. Unit tests include voltage withstand wet and dry, before and after load cycling on units installed on maximum
conductor sized cable.
Stress Relief
The R2T and R2IT terminations provide electric stress control for the cable by means of a flexible tube with a high permittivity dielectric
constant. The stress-relief tube is preassembled on the core under the polymer housing. As the core is removed, the stress-relief tube and
housing shrink onto the cable at the same time, in exactly the right position. No secondary operations are required during installation. The
electrical fields are refracted through the high dielectric constant tube and housing as shown.
Installation
Standard cable preparation techniques are used for all R2T, Elastimold Ranger2 Outdoor Terminations, and R2IT, Elastimold Ranger2 Indoor
Terminations. The Elastimold shrink-fit terminations are assembled on a removable core. After the termination is placed onto the prepared
cable, the core is removed by pulling on the end. The housing then collapses onto the prepared cable. Memory of the material provides the
interface solid dielectric and sealing properties required to meet the electrical ratings and prevent the ingress of moisture.
Kit Contents
Every R2T and R2IT comes complete with housing and stress tube
preassembled on the core, ready for installation. Easy-to-read
installation instructions will take you from cable preparation through
installation. All kits include a tube of silicone grease, two plastic
gloves and one strip of self-fusing silicone tape. Outdoor kits also
include mastic for sealing. Metallic Tape (M) kits include a grounding
adapter for Tape Shield, Wire Shield and UniShield cables. LC Shield
(L) kits include a high ampacity grounding adapter for Longitudinally
Corrugated Shield, Tape Shield and Wire over Tape Shield cables.

Faulted Circuit Indicators
Test Point Fault Indicators TPM Series
Mount directly to any IEEE 386 standard capacitive test point.
Test Point Mounted Fault Indicators consist of a solid-state current sensor connected to a
faulted-circuit display, providing a clear visual means for quickly locating faulted cables and
equipment on underground distribution systems. Designs incorporate advanced circuit logic and
monitoring system protection operation to prevent the indicator from tripping unless an
overcurrent condition is followed by a loss of system voltage. Trip and reset operations are
automatic, and for versatility and convenience, the same indicator may be used for 5 kV thru
35 kV applications.
AccQTrip™ Logic Circuitry Prevents false indications in voltage-reset units due to inrush currents,
cold load pickup and overloading.
High/Low Trip-Setting Selection Requires no minimum load current and no load surveys.
Internal Magnetic Shielding Prevents adjacent phase effects.
1 msec. Trip Response Coordinates with current-limiting fuses, as well as other protection devices.
Magnetically Latched Flag Prevents flag indication from changing state due to shock or vibration.
Test Point Mounting Mounts directly to 200 and 600 A elbows, splices and other cable accessories
equipped with IEEE 386 standard capacitive test points.
Built-In Pulling Eye Enables safe, easy hotstick installation and removal from test points.
Durable Construction Enclosed in a rugged, yet lightweight and compact, sealed, impact- and corrosion
resistant Lexan housing with EPDM molded-rubber test point mounting boot.
Time/current Curve for TPMVF, VL, VOL,TL
Trip Point VS. Cable Diameter
Basic Operation
A faulted circuit produces an associated magnetic field, which closes a reed switch in the indicator, resulting in a tripped display. Trip response
occurs in .001 seconds (1 msec.), allowing the fault indicator to properly coordinate with all types of circuit-protection schemes, including
current limiting fuses. To eliminate confusing false trips, voltage-reset indicators are equipped with inrush, backfeed, overload and cold-load
pick-up restraint circuitry. Current sensors feature internal shielding to prevent inadvertent tripping when located in close proximity to adjacent
phases, such as in junction-mounted applications.

Faulted Circuit Indicators
Overhead Line Fault Indicators OLM Series
Locate faulted circuits and equipment on overhead distribution systems
Self-powered Fisher Pierce® Series OLM Overhead Line Fault Indicators consist of a solid-state
current sensor connected to a faulted circuit display. Advanced circuit logic monitors system
protection operation and prevents indicator tripping unless an overcurrent condition is followed by
a loss of system voltage. Trip and reset operations are automatic, and the same indicator may be
used for 5 kV thru 35 kV line-to-ground applications. These compact, sealed and
corrosion-resistant units are designed for direct installation to an overhead line using a
spring-loaded, over-center toggle clamp. Equipped with retainer pads to prevent slip and twist, the
clamp positions the conductor at a constant distance from the current sensor, maintaining trip
accuracy over the entire conductor diameter range of .4 in. to 2.2 in.
Basic Operation
A faulted circuit produces a magnetic field, which closes a reed switch in the indicator and causes
a tripped display. A trip response time of .001 seconds enables the indicator to properly coordinate
with all circuit-protection schemes, including current-limiting fuses. To eliminate confusing false
trips, indicators feature inrush, overload and cold-load pickup restraint circuitry as standard.
Internal shielding of current sensors prevents inadvertent tripping when in close proximity
to adjacent phases.

Test Point V2 Voltage Indicator
Easy way to visually determine the energized status of
underground distribution circuits
The V2 Voltage Indicator consists of a self-powered voltage sensor connected to a neon light that
flashes when energized. Simply plug it into any IEEE 836 standard capacitive test point to
determine the energized status of underground distribution circuits. Because the flash rate is
proportional to the phase-to-phase system voltage, as indicated in the chart, one V2 model
supports a wide range of applications – from 5 to 35 kV.

Molded Vacuum Switches and Fault Interrupters
Choose from five electronic control options to interrupt faults
Molded Vacuum Interrupters are provided with self-powered electronic control packages requiring no batteries or external power. Depending on
the application, five electronic control options are available for the MVI — see below and on following page.
Include Self-Powered Electronic Control Packages No batteries or external power are required. Controls send a signal to the vacuum interrupters to trip open
and interrupt the fault when an
overcurrent condition is detected.
Field-Selectable Fuse or Relay Curves and Trip Settings One device for many protection schemes.
Internal Control
This control is integral to the unit (no separate control box). It is accessible via a computer connection to view or modify settings. This control is used on ganged three-phase or
single-phase MVI interrupters. Phase and ground trip, as well as inrush restraint, are
available. The E-Set software enables the user to connect to the internal control, either
in the shop or in the field, to program or change settings. An MVI-STP-USB programming connector is required to connect between the PC and the MVI. With a computer
connected to the MVI control, the user can view real-time currents, the number of overcurrent protection operations, current magnitude of the last trip and the phase/ground
fault targets. This is the standard control option.
NOTE: E-Set can be downloaded from www.elastimoldswitchgear.com
External Control with Single-/Three-Phase Trip Selection
(Style 10 and 310)
This control is mounted externally to the mechanism and provides the ability to select
TCCs by setting DIP switches on the front panel. Each phase can be assigned a different
minimum trip setting by means of manual rotary switches. This control is used on one,
two or three single-phase MVI mechanisms.
External Control with Phase and Ground Trip (Style 20 and 320)
This control is mounted externally to the mechanism and provides the ability to select
phase minimum trip (one for all three phases), time delay for phase tripping, ground trip
as a percent of phase minimum trip and ground trip delay by means of manual rotary
switches. This control may be used on ganged three-phase or three single-phase MVI
mechanisms.

used on ganged three-phase or three single-phase MVI mechanisms.
External Control with Selectable Single-/Three-Phase
Trip Function (80 and 380 Control)
This control is mounted externally to the mechanism of the interrupter and provides the
ability to select between a single-phase trip and a three-phase trip. The 80 and 380
Control can be used with one three-phase interrupter or with three single-phase interrupters. For three-phase applications, the ground trip function can be blocked from the
front panel. Manual trip and reset target buttons are also located on the front panel. This
control uses the E-Set software, which enables programming via a computer using the
MVI-STP-USB adapter. E-Set features custom TCC curves and provides access to the
last fault event information, as well as real-time current per phase.

Multi-Way Unit Construction
Multi-way vault and padmount units are built using MVS, MVI and MCAN modules as required by
the application. These are mounted onto the ES multi-way common bus system and assembled
on a free-standing, floor-mounted frame. At this stage, the product is ready to be used in vault
installations.
For padmount installations, a double-sided, drop-over, painted, mild steel enclosure is provided.
Munsell Green 7GY 3.29/1.5 is the standard enclosure color. Other colors are available upon request. Painted stainless steel or fiberglass enclosures are available as options.

* The 15.5 kV L-G rated fuse requires 75% grounded load to be applied on a 25 kV system.
The 17.2 kV L-G rated fuse requires at least 75% grounded load to be applied on a 28 kV system.
Fuses are only suitable for the system voltage class shown if the recovery voltage across the fuse
will not exceed its rated maximum voltage. For three-phase applications, this generally requires that
protected transformers be gndY–gndY and have at least 50% grounded load. Fuse replacement requires
the elbow to be de-energized.

1. Designs have a 50,000 A RMS Symmetrical Rating (except 3 A, 17.2 kV — which was tested at 44 kA maximum).
2. Fuses have a Rated Maximum Application Temperature (RMAT) of 65º C. RMAT is the maximum temperature of the air, in contact with the elbow housing,
at which fuses have been shown to be suitable for use.
3. Tabulated Maximum Total I2t values are for currents of 50,000 A at the nominal voltage of the fuse. Values for 8.3kV fuses at 10kV are approximately 30% higher.
Values for 17.2 kV fuses at 15.5 kV are approximately 20% lower.
4. Maximum total I2t values are reduced for currents below 50,000A. For example, at 10,000A, maximum total I2t values are approximately 15% less than the published values.
5. Peak arc voltages listed are for 50,000A currents at the rated maximum voltage listed. Reduced currents and voltages will reduce the peak arc voltage. For more information, contact your T&B Regional Sales Office.
6. Maximum continuous currents at ambient temperatures other than those listed may be determined by derating the fuses by 0.2% per degree C over 25ºC. For example:
At 40ºC the derating would be 15 x 0.2 = 3%, making the maximum continuous current of a 17.2kV, 25A fuse 31.5 x 0.97 = 30.5 A.
7. Time-current characteristic curves are published at 25ºC. Reduction in the long time melting current of the fuses (approximately one hour and longer) due to higher ambient
temperatures is the same as described above for “maximum continuous currents.”

** 17.2 kV L-G rated fuses require at least 75 % grounded load to be applied on a 28 kV system.
Fuse replacement requires the MCLF to be de-energized.
Fuses are only suitable for the system voltage class shown if the recovery voltage across the fuse will not
exceed its rated maximum voltage. For three-phase applications, this generally requires that protected
transformers be gndY-gndY and have at least 50 % grounded load.

1. Designs have a 50,000 A all U/CERMSs Symmetrical Rating.
2. 10–50 A fuses have a Rated Maximum Application Temperature of 65°C, and 65–180 A fuses have a Rated Maximum Application Temperature of 40°C.
(RMAT is the maximum temperature of the air in contact with the MCLF housing at which the fuses have been shown suitable for use.)
3. Tabulated Maximum Total I2t values are for currents of 50,000 A at the nominal voltage of the fuse. Fuses that have a Rated Maximum Voltage higher than their Nominal Voltage Rating will
have a higher I2t let-through when applied at voltages up to these higher values. For example, Maximum Total I2t values are increased by approximately 30% when 8.3 kV fuses are applied at
10kV and approximately 25% when 15.5kV fuses are used at 17.2 kV.
4. Maximum total l2t values are reduced for currents below 50,000 A. For example, at 10,000 A, l2t values are approximately 15% less than the published values.
5. Peak arc voltages quoted are for 50,000A currents at the rated maximum voltage listed. Reduced currents and voltages will reduce the peak arc voltage. Consult the factory for further information.
6. Maximum continuous currents at higher ambient temperatures may be determined by derating the fuses by 0.2% per degree C over 25° C.
For example: At 40°C, the derating would be 15 x 0.2 = 3%, making the maximum continuous current of a 20 A fuse 23.0 x 0.97 = 22 A.

Surge Arresters
Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) Surge Arresters
Fully shielded, fully submersible for convenient energized connection
with 200 A loadbreak or deadbreak components up to 35 kV
Voltage surges that exceed the BIL rating of the distribution system components will cause
damage to the installed equipment. To protect against these surges, overhead surge arresters are
widely used. Their application is understood since overhead lines and equipment are
directly affected by voltage surges (e.g. lightning). However, the use of overhead
arresters alone will not guarantee proper protection of the insulation in
the underground portion of an electrical distribution system. The
let through surge from the riser pole arresters into the
underground systems could be enough to cause damage to
the aging equipment insulation.
Elastimold® MOV Surge Arresters provide high-voltage
lightning and switching surge protection of transformers,
cable, equipment and other components typically located on
underground power distribution systems. Proper placement,
voltage selection and coordination with riser pole arresters
minimize damaging surge voltages by improving protective margins.
Typical applications include installing an arrester at the end of a radial
system or at both ends of an open point on a loop system. Additional
arresters can be added at strategic locations upstream from the end point
for optimum protection.
Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV) Surge Arresters are available in three styles:
Elbow (ESA), Parking Stand (PSA) and Bushing (BSA). The PSA and BSA
arresters permit direct connection, eliminating the need for additional
accessories. ESA Elbow Arresters are also available with a 200 A deadbreak
interface for mating with other deadbreak accessories.
The following page highlights the different installation options using Bushing and Parking Stand
Arresters where Elbow Arresters are normally used. Using BSAs and PSAs will contribute to
saving space inside transformers and improving operability.
IEEE 386 Interfaces; IEEE C62.11 Provide convenient energized
connection with other 200 A loadbreak or deadbreak components.
EPDM Molded Rubber Construction Fully shielded and fully
submersible for a variety of applications.
Compact Size Enables installation in your existing cabinetry,
saving you money.
Three Styles of Arresters Available Surge arresters fit your
application and are easy to install.

Loop-Feed Circuit (Type 2 Transformer)
Two Elbow Arresters
and a Feed-Through
This is one approach using
elbow arresters only. (One of
the elbow arresters could
be mounted on the H1A
bushing if operating
procedures permit.)
Elbow Arrester and
Parking Stand
Arrester
This approach can reduce
overcrowding (by
eliminating the
feed-through device). This
is desirable in a mini-pad
transformer.
Bushing Arrester and Parking Stand Arrester*
This approach is best for increasing operability and reducing transformer
overcrowding. The bushing arrester enables the source cable to be
positioned on H1A, which conforms with some operating practices.
A bushing arrester mounted on H1A can be directed downward without
interference. Potential interference between an elbow arrester on H1B and a
cable parked on P is eliminated. The bushing arrester requires significantly
less space than an elbow arrester used with a feed-through insert.
Operability is enhanced because the open point can be closed by moving the
parked cable to H1B without removing an arrester.
* Transformers must be specified with bushing wells.
Additional Margin of Protection
An additional margin of protection may be gained by
adding an arrester at the next transformer upstream on
each side of the open point. This application is dependent on the system voltage and condition of the cable.
If an additional arrester is added in the circuit, it can
be an elbow arrester in combination with a feedthrough insert or it can be a bushing arrester. Use of a
bushing arrester will reduce transformer faceplate
overcrowding.
OR
Other Configurations
Other configurations are possible, such as specifying a bushing arrester on every transformer. This enables the open point to be quickly and easily moved to any point in the circuit while maintaining the surge protection (without moving all of the portable surge arresters). The externally
mounted bushing arrester provides the surge protection benefits without the negative factors of an under-oil arrester.

Radial-Feed Circuit (End Point)
Single-Bushing Transformer
To add surge protection to a single-bushing transformer, utilize a bushing arrester
or an elbow arrester with a feed-through insert.
Two-Bushing Transformer
To add surge protection to a two-bushing transformer at the end point of a
radial-feed circuit, add an elbow arrester to the unoccupied bushing or utilize a
bushing arrester.
Conversion of a Radial-Feed Transformer to a Loop-Feed,
Open-Point Transformer
To convert a single-bushing transformer to a loop-feed, open-point transformer,
add a parking stand arrester and an elbow arrester in combination with a
feed-through insert.

The Elastimold® Recloser is world-class, by design. It responds to every hardware requirement
that utilities want.
Smart – Our recloser is Smart Grid ready with three integral load-side voltage sensors and provision to add
source-side voltage sensors, if desired. It was designed to be fully compatible with the industry’s
No. 1 name in controls, Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories.
Light – The three-phase Elastimold® Recloser weighs 33% less than existing typical units. The simplicity of
the mechanism design, and the compactness of the encapsulated components, contribute to making the
Elastimold® Recloser easier to move and install.
Flexible – The Elastimold® Recloser is modular, so field upgrades and retrofits are easy and fast. The single
phase recloser has a pole rotation mounting bracket for easier installation.
Made with Your Needs in Mind – We designed the Elastimold® Recloser only after extensive talks with
electric utilities. Its features, from easier-to-see open/close indicators to the many robust extra features that
we consider “standard”, are there because of you.

Recloser Operation
The Elastimold® Molded Vacuum Recloser (MVR) operates electrically by
energizing a magnetic actuator system with a completely sealed
housing. Each pole contains a vacuum interrupter sealed in solid
dielectric insulation for mechanical and high dielectric strength.
An open-closed position indicator provides a 360-degree view. An
external manual trip assembly is located on the side; when in the down
position, it maintains the recloser in a lockout position until it is manually
restored. All electrical control connections are made through a sealed
single-environment control cable connector on the side.
