Splicing and Terminating Cable
1010607 Splicing and Terminating CableMultiple lengths of cable are connected together to form a continuous length. These connections are called joints or splices. Proper cable splices and terminations are necessary to minimize electrical stress areas developed at cable ends. Two cable ends may be spliced together or a cable end may be terminated at the primary cable riser, in a cable pothead, at a primary cable elbow, or with a compression connector.
Electric Stress Areas The electric field is properly distributed to eliminate any highly concentrated electric stress areas (
