Armour Earthing Without Gland

PILC – add constant force earth spring plus additional mastic tape.

Under Armour Split Ring

1. Prepare Cable to required length as in main Termination Instruction but remove the outer sheath a minimum of 100mm extra below the end of the main termination (distance determined by geometry of the equipment)

2. Install heatshrink sleeve and hose clamps over the cable. Remove armour to 75mm above outer sheath

3. Open up the Armour wires and ensure that the Armour Support Rings are fitted onto the bedding. Note:- If rings are a loose fit use small pieces of Mastic Tape to hold firmly into position

4. Position the armour wires onto the under armour rings and ensure no wires are crossed over each other. Install one of the small earth braids around the armour wires, over the lower under armour ring. Install large earth braid over the armour and secure to the small earth braid using one of the hose clamps. Note:- The small earth braids can be trimmed in length to fit diameter required. Note:- XLPE Cables (Cu Tape Screen)/PILC (Lead). Supplied as a separate kit. raid from core/lead should also be secured to armour wires by placing end of braid over the small braids. Position the other smaller earth braid over the armour around the other armour ring and secure to the large earth braid using the other hose clamp

Extend mastic tape to cover the earth spring connection on lead sheath if required. Note:- Upper mastic should be applied in the gap between clamps and bottom of previously installed termination tube
