Stinger Cover Reduces Animal Related Outages

Stinger Cover is part of Rauckman’s animal mitigation products that is designed to stop animals contacting the bushings wire on pole mounted distribution transformers.

Reduction of accidental contacts will minimize and reduce power outages by animals such as squirrels and birds and increase the power systems reliability while decreasing unplanned interruptions of service.

The Cover is track resistant since it is made from a silicone enriched elastomer specially formulated for the rigorous requirements of the electric utility industry.

Stinger Cover used with Bushing ZAP Cover

Stinger is typically used along with bushing standard cover or ZAP cover combination

Rauckman Utility Products Outage Protection devices (Bushing, ZAP and Stinger Cover) are designed and tested to minimize animal related outages without compromising equipment performance. All of Rauckman’s animal mitigation devices increase reliability while decreasing unplanned interruptions of service.

Bushing Cover Characteristics:

Rauckman’s Stinger Covers combine the three characteristics essential for flawless performance:

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

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

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

Distribution equipment failures caused by wildlife and incidental vegetation contact can be minimized by the use of RUP Stinger Covers. The covers are track resistant and made from a silicone enriched elastomer specially formulated for the rigorous requirements of the electric utility industry.

RUP Stingers are offered in 3 diameters, each available in a variety of lengths. All sizes are pre-slit with a generous material overlap. The overlapping lip is created using a unique manufacturing process that provides material memory while preserving flexibility.
