That there was light in the house, as is known, is necessaryquality wiring and the presence of all the necessary connections in the circuit. Any breakage, weakening of contacts, overloads and other troubles lead to a deterioration in the supply of electricity and other troubles. Therefore, if you decide to repair the wiring, you need to learn some theoretical and practical knowledge.

Wire connection

clamps for wires
Clamps for wires refer to the electric fittings and are designed to connect them to the outlet, to the current-transmitting parts of electrical appliances, branches in wiring and other important tasks.

  • By popularity in one of the first places arecontact clips. There are two types: spring and screw. The latest wire clamps are used for aluminum wire, which is one thread, as well as for copper "multi-bodies". Their design maximizes contact and quality work, for example, lighting. However, over time the connecting mechanism weakens somewhat, and it must be tightened. Screwless devices are flexible plates made of high quality bronze. Clips for wires, which are installed in cartridges for incandescent and daylight lamps, in switches of small-sized type, are made purely for copper threads. They are called self-clamping.

  • Another type of connecting structure is insulating caps. They are very simple to operate, but are only suitable for single-wire entries.
  • If you need to connect to the mainElectrolines standing in the distance objects, then to the help of the installers come the branching clamps for the wires. On professional slang they are called "nuts". Compared with other designs, "nuts" can connect both copper and aluminum threads. This is their undoubted advantage over other fittings. There is such a connecting clip for a wire of three plates, between which branches are skipped. They are adapted for both external and internal installation work.
  • A special type of connecting fittings are clamps withpiercing mechanism. The teeth inside the device pierce the insulation braid and adhere the wires. The connection established by them, reliably provides the supply of electricity. In addition, the specialist, installing the circuit, can work and under voltage - safety technology allows. An armature is also intended for branching electrical lines (as well as "nuts"), laid from isolated self-supporting wires. Naturally, it is quite difficult for a layman to understand all the diversity. Although, as some of the clips for wires look like - the photos give a visual representation.

Of course, if you decide to throw the cables yourself,make wiring, install those or other connections, you will have to buy the appropriate accessories and fittings. However, when acquiring the necessary details in the store, it is advisable to thoroughly instruct the specialists in order not to be mistaken. Yes, and how to use the armature, how to insert and attach the stripped wires - you should also find out, without suitable competent advice to this matter it is better not to proceed.
