Sitting up on CV702.

I’ve spent the last three days terminating light circuits into the fittings along CV702. A little innovation I haven’t seen elsewhere is that they have installed isolator switches to each light post on site here. The idea being it will void having to isolate the circuit at the distribution board when a light requires maintenance.

Good thinking, sorta.

The not so great aspect of it is that the isolator is made of PVC and when we terminate the cable into the fitting, the cable gland has a resin heat shrink shroud around it which requires heat to shrink it into place. Out here we have to use a gas torch to provide this heat which equals a very hot jet that more often than not leaves burn marks on said fittings.

Not pretty at all.
