Thoroughly clean all contact surfaces of the connector and the conductor
with the aid of a stiff stainless steel wire brush. Do not
use a stiff wire brush on plated surfaces. Plated surfaces should
be cleaned with a mild wire brush or mild abrasive like Scotch Brite being
careful to remove as little of the plating as possible.
Apply a generous amount of oxide inhibitor to conductor and connector
as described previously. (See Applying Correct Oxide Inhibitor
for Cable Connections pg. 5)
Install power connector and hand tighten hardware.
Tighten hardware in sequence shown below with a torque wrench in order
to get the correct torque for the particular alloy hardware. (See Torque
Table pg. 7)
Note: All excess oxide inhibitor must be removed from connectors
installed in EHV applications.
