What is an electrical splice?


Answer by  ahamedirshad123 (72)

The joining of two or more electrical conductors by mechanically twisting them together or by using a special splicing device is an electrical splice, which should withstand any mechanical strain, should allow electricity to pass through as if the wire had never been broken.

An electrical splice procedure in which a old connection of wires in displaced and a new connection is made. This includes the wires being cut apart or displaced, followed by one old wire and one new wire being twisted together to make a new connection, and taped back to seal the new connection.

An electrical splice is the joining together of two separate pieces of electrical wire. This should be done with caution. Making sure the power is shut off at the circuit breaker, connect the like colored wires, twist the wires together to the right using pliers, and twist on wire connectors.

An electrical splice is where you connect two or more wires with a wirenut or other suitable fastener so that the power can be run in more than one direction at the same time.


Answer by  DijendraSingh (26)

The joining of two or more electrical conductors by twisting them together mechanically or by using some other splicing devise as they can take reasonable mechanical strain.

When you join two or more wires together, either by taping them together or by using a wire-nut to join them.

A splice is where you take power off of another circuit. You basically cut into it or tap off of it.


Answer by  HUNM25 (713)

It's basically when two electrical wires or conductors are twisted together and it allows electricity to pass through as an electrical splice. It usually seals the connection between two wires.


Answer by  MrHardware (369)

An electrical splice is the connection between two wires. This can be done with a wire nut or a split bolt in most household wiring. Building codes dictate what methods can be used to make an electrical splice and they almost always are required to be enclosed in a junction box. Do not simply tape wires together.
