Cable Splicing, Part 1

SKU: TDCS100CENDuration: 60 Minutes

The purpose of this course is to teach the principles of underground cable splicing and to demonstrate how cable splices are made. The course explains how to approach splicing in both primary and secondary cable. Demonstrations of splicing both types of cable are presented. At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to explain how cable splices are made. They should know how to make a splice in either primary or secondary cable. They should also understand how heat shrink and cold shrink splices are used.

Learning Objectives

  • Electrical Cable
  • Identify the major parts of a primary cable.
  • Voltage Stress and Stress Relief
  • Explain what voltage stress is.
  • Explain how a layered cable design helps to counteract the effect of voltage stress.
  • Explain how a layered cable design helps to provide for the relief of static charges.
  • Cable Preparation
  • Describe one method of preparing primary cable for a tape splice.
  • Identity equipment that can be used to prepare primary cable for a tape splice.
  • 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 single-conductor, jacketed primary cable.
  • Splice Kits
  • Describe or demonstrate how to install a molded slip-on on a primary cable with a concentric neutral.
  • Describe of 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.
