Seamless (2012-13)

Cable connectors are an essential part of any power network. They are used in cable repair and in cable joining. Ensto makes cable connectors for several voltage levels and cable sizes, ranging from 4mm2 to 630mm2. Their present solution uses two screws to apply the necessary force to hold the two cable ends in place.

Our challenge is to design a screwless solution that is also cost effective, easy to use, does not require special tools and is also green. Several considerations go into the design such as mechanical strength, surface smoothness, electrical conductivity and installation conditions, to name a few
