Splicing the Perimeter Wire

    The perimeter wire need to be spliced in the following cases:

     

    • If additional wire is required in order to complete the initial set-up.
    • Changes done in the lawn.
    • Cut wire.

     

    To splice two wires follow the instructions below:

     

    • Use the connectors supplied in the box, as shown in the figures below; they are waterproof and provide reliable electrical connection.
    • Strip ½ inch (1.5cm) of each wire end (Figure 1 – step 1).
    • Twist the stripped ends together (Figure 1 – step 2).
    • Screw the silicone filled wire nut on the twisted ends until it stops turning (figure 1 – step 3).

    Important Information!
    Twisted cables or a screw terminal insulated with insulation tape is not a satisfactory splice. Soil moisture will cause the conductors to oxidize and after a while result in broken circuit.
