What are the key points for installing wire and cable joints in power construction? Posted by : admin / Posted on : Apr 09, 2021

        1. the connection of the conductor


   Conductor connection requires low resistance and sufficient mechanical strength, and no sharp corners should appear at the connection. Underground Cable Tools Manufacturers Crimping is commonly used in the connection of medium and low-voltage cable conductors. Attention should be paid to crimping:


   (1) Choose a conductor connecting pipe with appropriate conductivity and mechanical strength;


   (2) The fit gap between the inner diameter of the crimping tube and the outer diameter of the connected core is 0.8~1.4mm;


   (3) The resistance value of the joint after crimping should not be greater than 1.2 times that of the conductor of constant cross-section, and the tensile strength of the joint of copper conductor should not be less than 60N/mm2;


   (4) Before crimping, coat the outer surface of the conductor and the inner surface of the connecting pipe with conductive glue, and use a wire brush to destroy the oxide film;


   (5) Sharp corners, burrs, etc. on connecting pipes and core conductors should be smoothed with a file or sandpaper.


  2.internal semiconductor shielding treatment


Where the cable body has an inner shield layer, the inner shield layer of the conductor part of the crimping tube must be restored when the joint is made, and a part of the inner semiconductor shield of the cable must be set aside so that the inner shield of the connector on the connecting tube can communicate with each other. Ensure the continuity of the internal semiconductor, so that the field strength at the junction is evenly distributed.


  3. Treatment of external semiconductor shielding


   Outer semiconductor shielding is a semi-conductive material that acts as a uniform electric field outside the insulation of cables and joints. Like the inner semiconductor shielding, it plays a very important role in cables and joints. The outer semiconductor port must be neat and uniform, and smooth transition with the insulation is required, and the semiconductor tape is wound around the joint to connect with the semiconductor shield outside the cable body.


   4. Treatment of cable reaction force cone


During the construction, the reaction force cone with the exact shape and size has the same potential distribution on the entire cone surface. When making the cross-linked cable reaction cone, a special cutting tool is generally used, or it can be slightly heated with a slight fire and carried out with a sharp knife. After cutting and basic shaping, use 2mm thick glass to scrape, and finally use sandpaper to polish from coarse to fine until smooth.


   5. Metal shielding and grounding treatment


The role of metal shielding in cables and connectors is mainly to conduct cable fault short-circuit currents and to shield electromagnetic interference from electromagnetic fields on nearby communication equipment. In operation, the metal shield is at zero potential under a well-grounded state. When the cable fails, , It has the ability to conduct short-circuit current in a very short time. The grounding wire should be reliably welded, the metal shields and armor tapes on the cable body of the two ends should be firmly welded, and the grounding of the terminal head should be reliable.


  6. ​​Sealing and mechanical protection of joints


  The sealing and mechanical protection of the joint are the guarantee to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the joint. Prevent the penetration of moisture and moisture into the joints, and build joint protection grooves or install cement protection boxes at the joints.
