Ellis Patents Centaur Cable Saddle Cleats – Short Circuit Test Data

Centaur Cable Saddles have been short circuit tested 63kA RMS for 1 Second

Centaur saddles and intermediate straps short-circuit tested at KEMA in Arnhem Holland in July 2008. The commonly recognised National Grid requirement of 63kA RMS for a minimum of one second was used as an objective. Tests were passed on both three phase and phase to phase faults at 63kA RMS, 163kA peak.Details of the full independent report from KEMA relating to the Centaur Cable Saddle are available on request.

In addition the Centaur Cable Saddle has also been successfully tested for corrosion resistance. Centaur was subjected to an independent salt spray test. The test was carried out in accordance with BS EN 9227:2006 Corrosion tests in artificial atmospheres. Details of the full independent report from KEMA relating to the Centaur Cable Saddle are available on request.

Ellis Patents Centaur 132kV, 274kV, 400kV Cable Saddle Cleats – Features

  • Centaur consists of an extruded and pressed aluminium saddle and a hinged aluminium overstrap.
  • The curvature of the saddle accommodates the thermal expansion of the cable
  • Ends of the saddle are flared so that the cable never comes into contact with a sharp edge under any circumstances.
  • The overstrap incorporates a Low Smoke Zero Halogen Polymeric liner, which cushions the cable in the event of a short-circuit.
  • All the fixing bolts are in Type 316L stainless steel.
  • To eliminate the possibility of galvanic corrosion all dissimilar metals are isolated from each other by injection moulded separation washers.
  • Centaur saddles are available in lengths of 400mm, 600mm and 800mm to allow for different cable diameters and mounting centres.
  • Centaur can be supplied with a variety of rigid or flexible mounting arrangements.

Ellis Patents Centaur 132kV, 275kV, 400kV Cable Saddle Cleats - Mounting Options

Mounting options for the Centaur Cable Saddle Cleat are project specific and almost unlimited.

Centaur Saddles may be fixed directly to lugs, welded to the supporting structure or can also be  supported on a bracket manufactured from aluminium or galvanized steel. The Ellis Patents Centaur Cable Saddle may be installed rigidly or in such a way to allow it to pivot vertically, horizontally or both. (Observations of cable movement during short-circuit tests suggest that the latter option would be preferable).
