TEN Jumper and Bonder Manufacture
13 Feb, 2019
Jumpers, also known as hoppers, are used for temporary bridging/bypass operations on a low voltage or high voltage distribution network. Low Voltage Bonders are used for short circuiting LV conductor phases and comprises either 4 or 5 clamps (4 clamps standard, 5 clamps for a switch wire).
TEN manufactures a complete range of low voltage jumpers and bonders and high voltage jumpers in house in our manufacturing facilities in Brisbane. Considerations to the selection of jumpers include the operating voltage of the network and the required continuous current in Amps that determines the cable types that can be used. Clamp types include screwdriver style clamps, duckbill clamps and gloving clamps.
All TEN jumpers and bonders are serialised and marked with amp ratings, date of manufacture and a part number for traceability. We use a mastic heat shrink either in clear or black that hardens once shrunk providing additional mechanical relief at the termination, as well as preventing the ingress of moisture.
