Medium Voltage Cable Splicing Training

Medium Voltage Cable Splicing

Our 2-Day Basic Cable Splicing training course teaches students the basics of proper splices and terminations in medium voltage cable.

There are two things you should remember when it comes to cable splicing and terminating: 1. Proper splices and terminations are an integral part of any cable system, and 2. Cable splices and terminations become more susceptible to failure at higher voltages.

Therefore, whether splicing or terminating is accomplished by the use of hand-applied tapes, a filled or molded device, heat-shrinkable tubing, or a prefabricated device, care should be exercised during the application. Poor workmanship or improper choice of materials could jeopardize the reliability of the entire system.
