The splice consists of an aluminum alloy sleeve with the energy charge pre-wrapped. These joints are designed to be installed at the tensioner and pulled through stringing blocks. Special application charts for each conductor show the relationship between the pulling tension, weight span and the allowable line angle through which the joints may be pulled.
This makes sleeving an integral part of overall pulling operation, and greatly simplifies stringing.
IMPLO® connections can accommodate a wide range of ACSR, ACSS, ACSS/TW, ASC, and ASC/TW conductors; providing a consistent, smooth, high quality installation every time with no tools or dies. Various configurations, tap pad angles, and eyebolt versions available; 15 degree tap pad is standard.
