Heat Shrink Tubing Used in Transmission, Distribution and Insulation Protection

tubingAmphenol Industrial Products Group, a global leader in interconnect systems, has introduced a new line of heat shrink tubing for the electronics, energy, rail mass transit, heavy equipment, hybrid/electrical vehicles, telecommunications, mining and oil and gas markets.  The RoHS-compliant  (heat shrink tubing) is widely used in low-voltage applications and medium-voltage transmission and distribution as well as insulation protection.

This new HST line comes in a variety of styles including thin wall tubing that protects all types of electronic and electrical applications and dual wall tubing that seals and insulates splices, junctions, Ys and Ts, back shells and terminations where environmental protection is required.  In addition, our high temperature products operate in environments up to 260°C.

Also available are medium and heavy wall tubing for energy markets, as well as medium voltage tubing and tape for bus bar applications.

How to Perform a Radiated Emissions Measurement

Radiated emissions testing is the measurement of the electromagnetic field of the emissions that are unintentionally being generated by the equipment under test.

The UL/CSA-certified thin wall tubing has a maximum operating voltage of 600 V and an operating temperature range of -55°C to +135°C.  It is offered in multiple colors, has heat shrink ratios of 2:1, 3:1 and 4:1. The tubing comes in flame retardant and non-flame retardant material as well as halogen free or low smoke option.  It is resistant to common fluids, solvents and UV rays.

Also offered in multiple colors and in flame retardant, non-flame retardant, UV resistant materials, the dual wall tubing features the same maximum voltage, operating range and certifications of the thin wall tubing. Additionally, it meets SAE-AMS-DTL-23053/4 and has heat shrinking ratios of 3:1 and 4:1.

Amphe-HST’s medium and heavy wall tubing have a voltage range of 1 kV to 36 kV and an operating temperature range of -55°C to +110°C.  The tubes are UV and oil resistant, halogen free and offer stress control as well as high insulation.  They are certified to ISO 4589 ≥ 25 and are made from cross-linked polyolefin and modified polyolefin.

Amphe-HST provides economical and effective insulation to protect all functional parts, components, harnesses and systems where it is used.

In addition to shrink tubing, the Amphe-HST line also includes molded parts for low to medium voltage breakouts, cable feed throughs and insulation marker sleeves and application equipment like heat guns and conveyor ovens.

Made from cross-linked polyolefin and fluoropolymer materials, most of Amphenol’s shrinkable products have been tested and comply with UL/CSA, IEC, ASTM, MIL and ISO specifications. Amphe-HST can easily be used in electrical insulation, strain relief, environmental protection, splice sealing, mechanical protection, wire bundling and identification applications.
