Utility equipment: Elastimold 200 amp loadbreak elbows from Thomas & Betts (T&B), enhanced with safety performance features, increased range flexibility and improved lifecycle cost reduction, have earned Rural Utilities Service (RUS) Acceptance.

The RUS governs infrastructure construction and improvements in rural communities, including water and waste treatment, electric power and telecommunications services. RUS Acceptance authorizes the use of Elastimold 200 amp loadbreak elbows (for 15 kV and 25 kV voltage ratings) in rural infrastructure construction and improvements.

Loadbreak elbows and bushings are used for plug-in connections of underground cable to transformers, switchgear and junctions to enable disconnection when switching load currents. Elastimold 200 amp loadbreak elbows were enhanced last year with new safety performance features, including rigid probe support to ensure proper switching; increased range flexibility, including additional sizes and wider cable ranges; and improved life cycle cost reduction, including an improved seal system for traditional and jacket-seal options.
