With the popularity of electricity, there are many places where people use electricity in their lives. Therefore, the cable industry has also developed. The cable needs to be laid in a line before it can be used, but because the length of the cable may not be suitable for the length of the laying distance, it is necessary to use several connection points to connect the cable as a whole. This connection point is the cable gland. Cable glands are the most common way of connecting cables. When every kind of object is in use, there is a possibility of malfunction, and the cable gland is no exception. The following are some precautions for the use of cable glands, or rather, cable laying safety precautions.
1. The cable gland connector is to make the circuit smoother when using it. Ensure that the line is smooth, and the cable can run safely. Therefore, special attention must be paid to ensure whether the cable gland is insulated. The cable can only run if it is absolutely insulated. If an abnormality occurs, the cable cannot be operated.
2. The cable glands should also be kept safe. This safety means that there is no peculiar smell at the glands. If there is, it is generally caused by heat in the insulation layer, which is a normal phenomenon, but also needs attention.
3. During usage, if smoke or fire occurs at the cable gland, it is also caused by heat, but this situation is more serious than the smell. Before the cable is operated, a comprehensive inspection must be carried out, otherwise it will affect the operation of electrical equipment and may cause a huge loss of electricity. Both for the user and the country, it will cost a lot of money. Even the most serious is the occurrence of electric shock or fire accidents, which can also pose a threat to human life.
4. Finally, the cable gland will fall off or be damaged after a long time of use. At this time, we must replace it according to the actual situation. Of course, when replacing it, pay attention to safety to prevent electric shock.
