Abstract:

The splicing and termination of underground electrical distribution cable requires that the integrity of cable conductor and insulation be maintained throughout its length. A large number of commercial cable splice and termination kits are available which are claimed to fulfill these requirements. The Civil Engineering Laboratory CEL was requested to investigate the suitability of these kits for use at Naval shore facilities. Of special interest were the slip-on cable splice and cable termination for solid dielectric insulated cable. These slip-on devices proved to be the easiest and fastest to install with good reproducibility, and the electrical characteristics were as good as, or better than, the other types of cable splice and cable termination kits tested.
