AMP Offers Low-Cost M e t h o d Of M a r i n e Cable S p l i c i n g — L i t e r a t u r e O f f e r ed

The AMP Marine Cable Splicing Kit from AMP Products Corporation, Valley Forge, Pa., provides the marine industry with an advanced wiring method for modular shipbuilding, jumboizing and repairs.

According to the manufacturer, the AMP splicing system is the first safe, waterproof, corrosion- and impact- resistant, abrasion-protected, industry-accepted, low-cost method of marine cable splicing.

The AMP Marine Cable Splicing Kits include pressure-type AMP Butt Connectors; AMP Thick Wall Heat Shrink Tubing with Sealant (MIL-I-23053/15) throughout for replacement cable jacket; and AMP TERMI-FOIL Grounding Harnesses for maintaining electrical continuity of armor.

Reviewed and accepted by both the U.S. Coast Guard and the American Bureau of Shipping, this marine splicing kit eliminates long cable pulls and allows for splicing of wiring cables at modular breaks. In addition, it splices low smoke Navy cable as well as commercial cable for both new construction and repair.

Additional benefits of the product include cost savings associated with the ability to salvage broken shipboard cables, as well as faster repair completion which allows for preplanning of electrical work in damaged vessels.
