Course Description

This unit covers the termination of cables and cords and their conductors at accessories and current-using devices designed to operate at voltages up to 1,000 V a.c. or 1,500 V d.c. It encompasses working safely and to standards, understanding wiring system and cable types and applications, selecting appropriate termination accessories, preparing and terminating cables and cords, terminating cables/cord conductors and ensuring completed termination complies with requirements.


National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria

National Element Code & Title:

UEENEEG106A Terminate cables, cords and accessories for low voltage circuits

Element:

1. Prepare to terminate cables, cords and conductors.

Performance Criteria:

1.1 OHS procedures for a given work area are identified, obtained and understood.

Element:

2. Terminate cables, cords and conductors.

Performance Criteria:

2.1 OHS risk control measures and procedures for carrying out the work are followed.
2.2 Circuits/machines/plant are checked as being isolated where necessary in strict accordance OHS requirements and procedures.
2.3 Cable/cord ends are cut and sheath/insulation stripped with sufficient length to prevent stain on terminations and without undue waste.
2.4  Cable glands/retaining devices are fitted and secured to ensure cable/cord cannot be pulled out of entry into junction box/ terminal enclosure
2.5 Conductors are prepared to suit the type of terminal at which there are to be connected.
2.6 Conductors are terminated to ensure continuity across the terminal.
2.7 Established methods for dealing with unexpected situations are discussed with appropriate person or persons and documented.
2.8 Unexpected situations are dealt with safely and with the approval of an authorised person.

Element:

3. Test terminated cables and cords.

Performance Criteria:

3.1 OHS work completion risk control measures and procedures are followed.
3.2 Terminated cables are tested to ensure continuity and insulation resistance comply with requirements.
