Accles and Shelvoke, also known as Acvoke, create cable spikers which are used to ensure that high voltage cables are proven dead.
Cable spikers work by injecting a large spike through the high voltage cable in question; the operator stands at a safe distance and activates the trigger system remotely, which spikes the sharp object through the cable and completely severs the conductors.
By using Accles and Shelvoke's cable spikers, high voltage engineers and cable designers can safely dispose of old cables without risk of the cable still carrying electricity.
We currently stock cable spikers for use with cables up to 275kV and cables up to 400kV.
