Cable Splicing 2

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course describes several ways to splice primary and secondary cables. It also includes instructions for using splice kits to splice primary cable.


COURSE GOALS

  • Describe how to splice primary cable.
  • Describe how to use splice kits.
  • Describe how to splice secondary cable.

 
SUBJECTS AND OBJECTIVES
Primary Cable Splicing

  • Explain how mechanical presses and hydraulic presses are used to install compression connectors to join conductor ends.
  • Describe one method of completing a tape splice on a single-conductor, jacketed primary cable.

Splice Kits

  • Describe or demonstrate how to install a molded slip-on splice on a primary cable with a concentric neutral.
  • Describe or demonstrate how to install a heat-shrink splice on a primary cable with a jacketed concentric wire layer.

Secondary Cable Splicing

  • Identify differences between primary and secondary cable construction.
  • Describe or demonstrate how to perform a split bolt (mechanical) splice, a heat-shrink splice, a cold-shrink splice, and a rolling ring seal splice on a secondary cable.
