Jointing equipment for substations and switchyards includes:
- carriers - connectors
- cable racks
- apparatus rivets
- tube busbars
- spacers for bundled conductors
- caps and caps with anti-coronial rings for tube busbars
Materials, shape, cross-section and type of anti-corrosion protection are chosen on the basis of necessary electrical and mechanical characteristics of jointing equipment and its reliability of exploitation in relation to the planned lifetime, electrical and mechanical strain, impact of the environment and atmospheric conditions, i.e. rain, snow, ice, aggressive gases, salt, UV radiation and other effects.
