Electrical Cable/Wire General Requirement

This topics always discussed among of electrician personnel that involved on new installation or electrical projects.If they miss calculated or choose a wrong size for the conductor/wires,it’s can cause a big disaster when that installation failure.

Electrical cable/wire is a important things that we must consider with calculation and detail discussion to avoid any mistaken during design and installation.We must take a serious action to get a good result.

I would like to shared some general requirement for electrical cable/wire for new electrical installation or projects that we must consider during design review.I hope this can make a guide line for the best result in your installation or projects. read more

How to install lug for electric cable?

Cable termination is important when we install equipment,machine,induction motor,power supply distribution and many more.We use a cable lug to connect the electrical cable with terminal or busbar.

The right method to install cable lug is important to ensure the termination is perfect and tight to avoid sparking.It can cause the damage of cable or the equipment.This time i want share some information about how to install a lug for 240mm electric cable.

Please use the suitable crimping tools and correct cable lugĀ  according electrical cable size.If not the crimping process will not perfect and it can cause a serious damage.Following video is one of example how to crimping cable lug for 240mm cable. read more

Criteria for cable design

Cable is a important thing in electrical engineering to transfer the power supply from distribution to end user or equipment.It must have a quality and durability to ensure it can stand for any condition and long life span.

Day by day,manufacture made the research and development to improved quality and design of cable suitable with new technology and different surrounding area.It also improved for more efficiency,low cost,heavy duty and environment friendly.

To make a proper design for electric cable,the major criteria to get electrical cable be the good design and high quality are 4 items following : read more

Electrical cable

Basically electrical cable is a conductor to carried electricity from one place to another place.CablesĀ  provide a reliability and compacting method of transmitting power from generator to end user or consumer.

Cables are installed in open air on tray,racks or ladders, underground, or underwater as in the case of submarine cables.We can found many different types of cables or wire suitable with out application and working area.

The fundamental concern of power cable engineering is to transmit current economically and more efficient. The choice of the conductor material, size, and design must take into consideration such items as: read more

How to crimping a cable lug?

Before we perform the crimping job,we must provide the suitable tools.The tools such as Crimping tools,cable cutter and cable lugs.Please ensure a lugs size is fix with electric cable.We can refer to the tag on the lugs.

If you not sure or familiar with crimping tools and cable cutter,please refer to my post about crimping tools and cable cutter.I explain detail about it.Please used the tools properly.it can cause the injury if mistaken happen.SAFETY FIRST.

To do a perfect crimp of cable lugs is very important to ensure the fitting and installation job running smoothly.If the cable lug loose because the crimping process is not done properly, it will cause a cable is damaged or burnt. Read more

Conductor splices

It is the method to jointing and two of cable or conductor with a good quality and safe for electrical application.In electrical work, the connection cable is quite important and should be taken seriously, if it is the wrong way, this will lead to an accident or damage to the circuit.

In industry,it have several types electrical conductor splices technique.It use for different application.We must selected the write splices type depend on application.If not it can cause the serious damage for conductor,people and equipment.

This time i want share about types of conductor splices it common used in electrical field for wiring and installation works. read more
