INSTALLATION PROCEDURE FOR UN-INSULATED LUGS & CONNECTORS - 1.5MM2 - 1000MM2
1 . Identify the correct Terminal/Connector for the cable in use.This can be done by checking the marking on the connector or from the labels attached to the packages.
2 . Necessary cable preparation to be done using suitable stripper to remove the insulation to the distance equal to the insertion depth of the connector plus suitable extra allowances.(3mm to 5mm)
3 . Brush the surface of the stranded conductor to remove any oxides if present.
4 . Insert the conductor in to the barrel of the connector.Orientation of the palm of the connector should be ensured for the equipment where it is to be connected.
5 . Suitable crimping dies / tools should be selected to ensure that the joints made are mechanically strong.Good joint results into good electrical continuity.
6 . Ensure proper crimping series(as mentioned above)
7 . Clean the surface where the terminal is to be fixed.Necessary nut,bolts,washer as indicated should be used.
