Title
(EN) BOLTED ELECTRICAL CONNECTING DEVICE FOR MULTIPLE ELECTRICAL CONDUCTORS
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE CONNEXION ELECTRIQUE BOULONNE POUR CONDUCTEURS ELECTRIQUES MULTIPLES
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention provides a device for electrically connecting electrical conductors (30, 30') of two adjacent sections (14, 18) of a multi-phase electrical distribution system (10). The connecting device includes a generally cylindrical body (38) enclosing two ground connectors (90), two outside insulators (110) and two inside insulators (114). Each of the outside and inside insulators (110, 114) includes an equal number of semi-circular shaped electrical connectors (158) which are arranged such that each electrical connector (158) on one of the outside insulators (110) has a corresponding electrical connector (158) on one of the inside insulators (114) thus forming a pocket (162). Each pocket (162) receives one electrical conductor (30, 30') from each of the two adjacent sections (14, 18) of the electrical distribution system (10). Electrical conductors (30, 30') of the two adjacent sections (14, 18) of the electrical distribution system (10) sharing a common pocket (162) are electrically connected by the corresponding electrical connectors (158) forming that pocket (162) as two outside insulators (110) are drawn toward the two inside insulators (114).

La présente invention concerne un dispositif de connexion électrique de conducteurs électriques (30, 30') de deux sections contiguës (14, 18) d'un système de distribution électrique (10) à phases multiples. Le dispositif de connexion comprend un corps (38) généralement cylindrique entourant deux connecteurs (90) de mise à la terre, deux isolateurs extérieurs (110) et deux isolateurs intérieurs (114). Les isolateurs extérieurs et intérieurs (110, 114) comprennent un nombre égal de connecteurs électriques (158) semi-circulaires disposés de sorte que chaque connecteur électrique (158) sur l'un des isolateurs extérieurs (110) corresponde à un connecteur électrique (158) sur l'un des isolateurs intérieurs (114), formant ainsi une poche (162). Chaque poche (162) loge un conducteur électrique (30, 30') provenant de chacune des deux sections contiguës (14, 18) du système de distribution électrique (10). Les conducteurs électriques (30, 30') des deux sections contiguës (14, 18) du système de distribution électrique (10) partageant une poche (162) commune sont électriquement connectés par les connecteurs électriques (158) correspondants formant cette poche (162), lorsque les deux isolateurs extérieurs (110) sont tirés vers les deux isolateurs intérieurs (114).
