Wire splices and joints are used to combine two sections of wire together. This is particularly helpful when wire is added to an existing setup.
The four types of splices and joints are the Western Union splice, tap splice or tap joint, fixture splices or fixture joints, and rattail joint. The most common among the four wire splices is the Western Union splice.
ah splices is a wire that functioning electric molecules
Yes, as long as all splices are made inside of an approved type junction box.
I thought so. A buyers home inspecter says the splices,connections must be in a box "as per code".
Electrical joints and/or splices are points in a continuum of wiring at which new wire is either added for extended length to the final intended outlet, or branched off for additional outlets.
Splices allow wires to be pulled into raceways without the need for looping longer lengths of wire; looping wire-pulls entails more labor and increasing chance of damaging to the wire Each splice however, introduces a potential failure point if not done right, and requires its own special parts and extra labor. The splices can heat up, burn up, shake loose, etc. If we are talking control wiring, the added splices increasing the chances of mixing up the wires, which will cause mucho troubleshooting woes.
To connect one wire to another, as a continuation of a circuit or to terminate to a block or panel.
You can splice wires together in many ways. You can solder them together and then tape them up or use a shrink insulator that shrinks by heating it up. You can strip the wires back about 1/2 inch and then twist them together and put them under a wire nut. Wire splices in a home must be spliced together inside a junction box with a cover. Wires can never be spliced behind a wall. Any splice should be placed where you can access it later on.
If you are looking for an image of wire splice and joints, just type it in to your favorite search site. Many images will come up for you to use.
Butted Splices: Western Union splice for small gauge solid conductors. Multi-conductor cables should utilize staggered splices to decrease the bulk of the jointed area. Rat tail joints are can also be used for solid conductor cables, and are most commonly seen with electrical branch wiring. A naked joint is not very strong. Wire nuts are used as protective covers for these joints, and also provide a mechanical connection for added strength. A fixture joint is also commonly seen in electrical branch wiring where wires of different diameters must be joined together. Split bolt splices are simple mechanical joints normally reserved for residential and commercial grounding conductors, but can be seen in some larger commercial industrial locations or a residential service entrance. Running Splices: A Knotted tap joint is used to connect a branch wire to a continuous wire.
Some common types of electrical splice:Rat-tail, Western Union, fixture, knotted tap, staggered splice.Some common types of electrical joint:Screw terminals, braided eyelets, crimps, sty-cons, plugs and sockets, insulated screw connectors, wire clip connectors (wire push-ins), twists inside wire nuts, plain wire soldered joints, soldered wire joints to posts and soldered legs for integrated circuits on printed circuit boards.
