Can you use metal-clad cable outdoors?
The interlocking metal tape armor Type MC cable is required to have a bare or insulated equipment grounding conductor in addition to any other conductors within the cable. These cables can be installed either indoors or outdoors and in exposed and concealed locations.
What is metal sheathed wiring?
Metal-clad cable comes in several varieties, but the type you’ll find most commonly is three insulated wires (two circuit conductors and a green equipment grounding conductor) protected by a flexible armor usually made from aluminum. MC cable is identified by the gauge of the wire, not the diameter of the armor.
Which tool is used for the simplest method of skinning wire?
Manual. A US-style simple manual wire stripper is a pair of opposing blades much like scissors or wire cutters. The addition of a center notch makes it easier to cut the insulation without cutting the wire.
How do you remove old wire from conduit?
The method works as follows:
- Tie the string: Tie a strong string to a long, inflexible rod.
- Push the rod: Push the rod through the conduit, tied end first.
- Attach the wire: Tie the electrical wires to the string.
- Pull the wire: Pull the rod and string through the conduit, pulling the wire along with them.
How do you remove old fabric wire?
First, use flush cutters to cut the cloth covering—starting with a cut where the wire is in line with the cutting blades. There is then typically a conventional plastic insulation which can be removed with regular strippers. If you have infinite patience, you can also use an Xacto knife with the pointy plade.
