SSC Series – Cold Shrink Splice

The SSC Series from Richards Manufacturing is a cold shrink splicing system for use on medium voltage power cables through 35kV. Equipped with numerous advantages and features, the SSC Series is an innovative, high-performance splicing solution. The Splice is a hybrid design, incorporating the best features of cold shrink and push-on technologies. For example, our Splice provides the benefits of cold shrink—integral jacket seals, range taking capabilities—and yet it also can be furnished with a capacitive test point! Molded entirely from Richards’ cold shrink EPDM materials, the Splice is built for durability in the toughest environments.
