What is the other name of cross joint?
A fracture in igneous rock perpendicular to the lineation caused by flow magma. Also known as transverse joint.
Why are two universal joints required?
Universal joints allow drive shafts to move up and down with the suspension while the shaft is moving so power can be transmitted when the drive shaft isn’t in a straight line between the transmission and drive wheels. Rear-wheel-drive vehicles have universal joints (or U-joints) at both ends of the drive shaft.
What is cross joint splice?
Double Wrapped Cross joint is just like an ordinary cross joint but double wrapped with electrical tape. It is used where two tap conductors need to extend away from the branch conductor in the opposite direction. Duplex Wire Splice is used only in conduit systems wherein duplex wires are used.
How do you make a knotted TAP joint?
The branch wire is brought under the main wire, around itself, and then over the main wire to form a knot. The branch wire is then wrapped around the main conductor in short, tight turns; and the end is trimmed off. The knotted tap is used where the splice is subject to strain or slippage.
What is the difference between splices and joints?
As nouns the difference between splice and joint is that splice is (nautical) a junction or joining of ropes made by splicing them together while joint is the point where two components of a structure join, but are still able to rotate.
What is wrapped tap or tee joint?
Wrapped Tap, Tee Joint is used on large solid conductors where is difficult to wrap the heavy tap wire around the main wire. When a No. Ordinary Cable Tap or Tee Joint is used where large stranded wire or cables are tapped to a through conductor.
What kind of joint is commonly used to join two or more conductors inside the junction box?
What is a pigtail splice?
A rat-tail splice, also known as a twist splice or a pig-tail splice, is a very basic electrical splice that can be done with both solid and stranded wire. It is made by taking two or more bare wires and wrapping them together symmetrically around the common axis of both wires.
