The 3M Cold Shrink Branch Splice QS 2001B lets you easily splice and tap extruded dielectric power cables rated up to 15kV. This silicone rubber splice provides economical, effective installations without force pushing, pulling or heat. For installations on cables with a conductor size range of #2 AWG through 250 kcmil cable, this adapter kit must be used in conjunction with the standard 3M Cold Shrink Splice Kit QS 2001B, building up the outside diameter of the cable insulation so that the splice body will fit the cable. This kit utilizes the QS-2000 cold shrink technology and consists of a multi-layer silicone rubber splice and stress control body, each expanded on a removable, supporting polymeric core.Kits contain sufficient material to make one branch splice. Note: For 2 AWG-250 kcmil cable, the 3M Cold Shrink Branch Splice Adapter QS-2000BA must be ordered and used in conjunction with the 3M Cold Shrink Branch Splice Kit QS-2001B. The adapter kit will increase the cable insulation O.D. so that the cable will work with the splice body. Order one adapter kit for each cable end (3 maximum/splice) below 350 kcmil (185 mm) conductor size.Note: Cable sizes shown below are for standard insulation thickness. Final determining factor is cable insulation O.D.
