BD Loops’ new Splice Kit is designed with inductance loops in mind, to create a water-tight seal over a spliced connection. Used in the field, this kit effectively repairs damaged lead-in wire or allows more wire to be connected to the lead-in. Without the protection against the elements that a water-tight Splice Kit offers, spliced inductance loops often short to ground.
The Splice Kit is packed with multiple lengths of double-walled adhesive shrink tubing, as well as a strip of glue tape that are applied as layers to create a water-tight seal.
The Splice Kit is designed to prevent common problems associated with splicing in the field, such as corrosion, oxidization and contact with water. The double-walled adhesive shrink tubing creates a tough waterproof seal ideal for direct-burial use or to be run through conduit.
A soldering iron, as well as a heat gun or blowtorch is required to use the Splice Kit.
Huntington Beach, Calif.-based BD Loops is a manufacturer of preformed direct burial and saw-cut inductance loops and installation tools.
