When earthing and short-circuiting equipment using aluminium-cable instead of copper-cable for railway systems, switchgear installations or overhead lines, the advantage of the weight-reduced cables becomes immediately evident.
The new aluminium earthing and short-circuiting device (single-pole, 70mm²) from DEHN Africa is considerably easier to transport and use than conventional devices. In the past, high copper prices led to material theft and damage, meaning that the new earthing and short-circuiting device with aluminium cables offers huge cost saving and convenience potential.
The new offering from DEHN Africa comes in a variety of different models, including an earth clamp for overhead contact lines and clamp for railway tracks with tommy bar; an earth clamp for overhead contact lines and clamp for railway tracks with ratchet; a universal clamp (T Pin Shaft) and universal clamp (Handle); a conductor clamp and universal clamp (Handle); ball head caps (Ø25 mm); a universal clamp (Handle) and clamp for railway tracks with tommy bar; a universal clamp (Handle) and clamp for railway tracks with ratchet; and with universal clamps (Handle) on both sides. Thus, earthing and short-circuiting kits can be fitted with the available clamps using diverse combinations to fit the required function.
