ZAPCover

   
 

Rauckman Utility Products ZAPcover is similar to other Rauckman Outage Protection bushing covers in form and fit but is equipped with 2 panels (with Rauck-Shock™ Technology) that deliver a non-lethal shock when contacted by an animal. The ZAPcover has been designed and tested to minimize animal related outages without compromising distribution equipment performance.

The ZAPcover may be installed on distribution & substation equipment bushings of 15 kV and 25 kV. For other voltages consult factory.

Unlike traditional polymer covers, ZAPcovers combine the following characteristics essential for flawless performance:
 

bullet

Higher Ultra-Violet (UV) stability including
Hindered Amine Light Stabilization (HALS)

bullet

Superior Electrical Properties by using a track-
resistant high dielectric material that remains
stable even in the most severe environments

bullet

Flame Retardant properties certified to
the V-0 criteria of Underwriters’ Laboratory
Standard of UL-94

bullet

The Zap panels use the same base polymer
as the grey cover, but also contain special
fibers that provide the Zap characteristics.
