Ask the Experts | Ask the Electronic Access Ace | Splicing Low Voltage Wiring

Question:

What’s the best method of splicing low voltage wiring?

Answer:

Use caution! Poor termination or cable splice can create high, and often intermittent, resistance that in turn leads to all sorts of technical problems. There are a few options:

  • Twisted wire nuts, the least desirable method
  • Crimped B-Connector, a good industry standard
  • Solder/Heat Shrink, the best choice
