- Material and Work not qualifying to any provision mentioned above shall be to the satisfaction of the Engineer in Charge.
- Providing armoured cable of specified voltage level, size & specified conducting material Aluminum/Copper) including required material, hardware’s for erection and erecting on wall, ceiling, RCC slab or drawing the same through pole, pipe, laying in provided conduit, trench, ducts, trays as per approved method of construction including glands, lugs, etc.
- Cables shall be PVC for LT/MP and XLPE for HT and of required construction, colour, shall carry ISI mark, IS No, manufacturer’s name, size, duly embossed / screen printed at every metre and having the total count of progressive length in metre at each mark.
Method of Construction:
- Irrespective of method of construction the cable ends shall be terminated with appropriate size & type of glands with lugs duly crimped, as directed by Site engineer.
- Wherever the cable has to be bent, the turning radius shall be as mentioned. Grouping of cables shall be done with adequate distance between cables as mentioned in IS so as to minimise the jointing.
- Cables shall be tagged/ferruled with identification name/mark at the point from where distribution starts and at ends. Bar earth wire of appropriate size As per Table- no. 1 shall run along with the cable. Earth wire running with the cable shall be terminated at the earth terminal nearest to Cable termination.
Erection of Cable on Surface:
- Erection shall be done as per the routes and layout finalised, in perfect level and in plumb. Before fixing the cable shall be straightened as far as possible for good aesthetic look, continuous bare Gl earth wire of required gauge as per Table No 1 shall be run. Cable with G I wire shall be fixed by saddles firmly clipped on cable and shall be fixed to wall, with minimum 50 x 8 mm SM screws with plugs/wooden gutties, etc. (Distance between two supports / saddles shall be maximum 450 mm).
- Wooden gutties shall be used wherever required (especially for stone walls). The entries made in wall, floor slab, etc for laying Cable shall be made good by filling and finishing with plastering the same.
Erection of Cable on Trusses:
- Cable along with bare Gl earth wire, while erecting on trusses, shall be firmly clamped by wrapping GI strip of 22 x 25 mm width of required length fixed to truss with nuts and bolts.
Erection of Cable on Pole:
- Cable along with bare GI earth wire, while erecting on pole, shall be firmly clipped by suitable wooden/epoxy resin cast grips, clamped with 25 x 3 mm or 50×6 mm MS strip of required length and fixed to the pole with nuts and bolts.
Laying of Cable in provided Trench/Pole:
- While laying Cable along with bare GI Earth wire, utmost care shall be taken to prevent damage to the insulation of the cable and to the open end. Cable shall be brought out from the trench vertically straight (minimum 1 metre above G L).
- Care shall be taken to inspect the trench so that the depth of cable shall not be less than as shown in Table No 7. Suitable size of cable loops shall be provided near the termination point at adequate depth.
Erecting cable in constructed Trench / duct:
- Erection of cables in constructed trench / duct shall be as per guidelines of IS 1255.
Erection of cables on trays:
- Cable/s shall be tied with PVC tags on Gl trays. At bending point care shall be taken so that sharp edges of the sheet will not damage cable insulation of cable.
Mode of measurement:
- Executed quantity shall be measured on the basis of running metre per run of cable.
- Cable laid underground, or fixed on any surface shall be dismantled carefully without damaging complete with all its accessories, making coil and stored as directed. The surface of the dismantled cable shall be made clear by removing unwanted material, cement mortar, etc. When cable is dismantled from the trench refill back the trench and make the surface proper.
Outdoor/Indoor end termination Kit: LT/HT Cables (BOQ Item sr. no. 15, 17- 18,20-21,22-23,25):
- Before providing an end termination kit to the cable, the cable end of the equivalent length of the moulds, shall be prepared by removing the outer PVC insulation along with the steel armoring.
- The ferrule shall then be inserted over the bare core of the cable, and shall be crimped with a hydraulic/mechanical type heavy duty crimping tool. The crimping shall be done in such a manner that there shall be no air gap.
- Then the crimped portion shall be wrapped first with the PVC insulation tape and then with the insulation tape used for wrapping HT conductor. The above method shall be carried out for all the cores strictly following the colour code.
- The leads of the cable now shall be placed into the mould by using the epoxy spacer, for having sufficient gap in-between the leads.
- The earth continuity lead shall be clamped to the intended end of the cable. After covering the cable leads with the PVC moulds, the edges shall be clipped after applying the adhesive on the inside face of the moulds.
- The pasting of moulds shall be rigid and as far as possible leak proof, so that the epoxy compound shall not spill out Now the duly stirred epoxy compound shall be poured and fill till the compound rises through the risers provided on the moulds. (Refer drawing no. CB-JT-2)
- After completing the above procedure, the joint shall be allowed to dry out for at least 8 to 10 hours (for epoxy compound to get hardened) depending upon the size of cable.
- Before connecting to supply, the dry and hardened joint shall be tested for its insulation level with 1000 VI 5000 V Meggar.
- Mode of Measurement: Executed quantity will be measured on number basis, (i.e. each).
