Accessories for high & extra high voltage cables

Technically always one step ahead. SÜDKABEL accessories for
the VPE high voltage technology are technically groundbreaking – yesterday – today – tomorrow.

Technically always one step ahead

Südkabel accessories for VPE high-voltage technology are among the technical pioneers. In 1995, for example, the cable joint for 400 kV cables passed the world’s first CIGRÉ recommendations. And our pluggable compact terminations for 550 kV are a good example of the development of safe, environmentally friendly and and installation-friendly accessories systems.

Innovations need fresh thinking

Retaining and developing knowledge and expertise is a key feature of Südkabel’s corporate culture. The enormous innovative strength for which Südkabelstands has become a tradition.

Worldwide, the company is regarded as a specialist for state-of-the-art products and the latest technology, always breaking new ground.

Our employees are continuously on the lookout for new materials, manufacturing or assembly processes that offer maximum benefits and safety. With application-friendly solutions that perfectly meet the individual requirements of each customer, we are constantly setting new impulses.

Convincing product quality, comprehensive service and careful project support – that’s what the Südkabelteam stands for. This attitude is the basis of a proven partnership with energy suppliers and the electrotechnical industry.

Our most important focus, then as now, is on the individual needs of each and every customer. Only in close dialog with you we have been able to bring to market a multitude of innovations that have decisively shaped the safe transmission and distribution of energy.

Accessories for complex requirements

Südkabel’s accessories are crucial components for XLPE-insulated high-voltage and extra-high-voltage cables. Here, too, Südkabel’s new developments were groundbreaking.

These include, for example, the cable joint for 400 kV XLPE insulated cables, which successfully passed the world’s first prequalification according to Cigré test recommendations in 1995.

The pluggable compact terminations are based on this advanced design. They are a good example of how we consistently develop safe and easy-to-assemble accessories for XLPE-insulated high-voltage and extra-high-voltage cables.

They are suitable for almost all types of XLPE insulated cables with a wide variety of conductors, shields, sheaths and armor.

Up to 170 kV, Südkabel accessories can also be mounted on EPR insulation. The decoupling of optical fibers (FOC) in the cable shield is optionally possible in all types of accessories. Accessories for high-voltage applications can be equipped with integrated sensors for partial discharge measurement. All cable accessories are designed for a long life service, as it is also expected of power cables.
