Development of an Explosion Proof High Voltage Cable Connector.
NTIS: PB/82-142589 :32 pages
The objective of this report was to design and construct a high- voltage, explosion-proof cable connector for use on underground coal mine drag cables. A connector was constructed with elastomeric phase insulators that provide insulation shielding throughout the connector length. The connector housing was made of flame-resistant cast polyurethane with no exposed metal components. Electrical and mechanical testing of the completed coupler resulted in satisfactorily meeting most of the design testing requirements.
