The Cold Shrink R-800 (CS8 Series) is an innovative blend of the Richards CSH Series and R-800. Like the traditional R-800, the CS8 Series is molded with a 200A Loadbreak Tap integral to the Deadbreak Elbow housing. Its cold shrinkable cable entrance eliminates the need for a cable adapter and separate jacket seal kit. By combining so many components into a single housing, the CS8 series is perfectly optimized for simplicity and reliability.
The Cold Shrink R-800 is equipped with a stainless steel Fastener, a specialized internal component that is engaged by assembly tool to torque the assembly of R-800, Lug and mating component. These fasteners are available in several types, designed to provide configurations to meet every application.
