- Sep 16, 2017 -

A splice connector is an electric connector which allows two cables or wires to connect within the body of the connector. These splices are typically crimped or soldered to ensure that the power from the source cable to the next cable is transferred at an acceptable performance level. Generally, all splices which are crimped, are specified for use with specific cable sizes and construction, with specific "crimp die" inserts appropriate for the connector and cable used.

Service Entrance Splices: Aluminum or Copper tubular splices, with "Center Stop", which can be either "insulated" or "uninsulated", range in size from 6 Gauge to 250 MCM, and are generally used in connecting residential or commercial users to the pole-mounted transformers.

Partial Tension Splices: Aluminum or Copper tubular splices, with a "Center Stop", range in size from 6 Gauge to 1050 MCM, and are generally used in underground or substation applications. "Partial Tension" implies that when spliced, the splice will hold pull-out tensile strength to within 90% of the RBS (Rated Breaking Strength) of the cable spliced. Generally, this rules out use in overhead applications where long spans of cable are involved.

Butt Splice Connectors: Copper tubular splices, WITHOUT a "Center Stop", range in size from 6 Gauge to 4/0, often used in battery and battery backup and telecom applications. The cables are "butted up" against eacho ther during splicing.

Parallel Splice Connectors: Copper tubular splices, WITHOUT a "Center Stop", range in size from 6 Gauge to 4/0, often used in battery and battery backup and telecom applications. The cables overlap inside the splice during splicing to ensure pull-out resistance performance.

Pin Splice Connectors: Copper or Aluminum cable barrels and copper clamp rods are used to create a splice which "crimps" on to cable and allows for field clamping. Pins are used for residential and commercial power pole locations as well as substation applications. They generally utilize a Center Stop, to combat bi-metallic corrosion between aluminum and copper. Cable sizes addressed are between 2 gauge and 350 MCM, with clamping bar diameters of between 3/8 and 1/2" and between 2 and 10 inches in length
