FrontCon – Connection and contacting technology for enamelled wires conductors
High-voltage power cables increasingly utilise conductor designs that significantly reduce skin and proximity effects. This enables more power transmission with the same cross-section. The individual strands of these conductors are insulated from each other (enamelled) and are often arranged in segments (Milliken type). This conductor structure complicates the cable connection process.
PFISTERER has developed FrontCon, which uses a completely new connector principle to significantly simplify and shorten installation and creates a defined connection via the front face of the cable. Installation takes only around 2 hours – not longer than for conventional cables with standard connections.
