4 Wire Ties for Residential Electrical Installations

There are several types of ties to connect drivers in residential electrical installations, although at an academic level they are usually taught almost all of them, in practice only a few are used.

4 Wire Ties for Residential Electrical Installations


 The 4 most common moorings to join wires in electrical installations are the following:

1. Pig's tail Also known as "rat tail". It consists of corking the ends of two wires with six turns. To be able to do this mooring we must leave approximately 2 cm in the tips of the wires, to give the termination of the mooring; These tips are bent "down and in" of the tie so that they do not tear the insulating tape.

2. Wester Union. It is very simple to do and has a lot of resistance to mechanical stress. This mooring consists of about six turns between two wires placed in a linear fashion.

3. Simple Derivation. It is a simple derivation, but made with force; It has at least four turns made with a wire derived, wound on another main.

4. Double Derivation. This derivation is very functional when you want to draw two more derivations from a single line. It is made in the form of a cross and at least four short turns are formed for each branch, to give strength to the mechanical tension.
