  • All types of cables end power 5KVolts and up require the installation of terminations at the ends to control (stress cone) the voltage stress and provide increased resistance to the arcs and paths. It is therefore important to resort to a professional and experienced workforce by the different products available on the market.

  • Under an amendment to a cable network power, for economic reasons and / or constraints in place, it may be advantageous to keep the sections in good condition and make splices. That’s why power companies have developed expertise GML for integrating a new cable network to network cable user requiring different types of splices.
  • Transition joint between PILC and XLPE
  • Transition joint from single-phase conductor to 3 phases conductors
  • Live end cap on PILC cable, XLPE, 5-25 KVolts

Infrared thermography is the process of capturing and analyzing thermal data from thermal imaging devices without physical contact.

Electrical companies Gaétan Marcil Ltée regularly use thermal imaging for the protection of workers, it becomes a prerequisite for work carried out in confined spaces.

Thermal imaging is a powerful diagnostic tool for preventive maintenance, detecting faults invisible to the eye. Thermography allows corrective actions on electrical equipment before breakage occurs. By measuring temperature differences precisely, thermal imaging becomes a valuable aid in determining the corrective actions to be taken, which allows the company to better plan the work. During the assessment, several pieces of information are collected, which will then be summarized and transmitted in a written report.
