There are many cables in BTS. These cables' joint are crisp and fragile. They need to be insulated with BTS insulation materials to prevent water or moisture from coming in. If these cable joints are not properly insulated, the moisture in the air will cause corrosion, and lead to system malfunction.
What Are The Tools That Can Be Used For Insulation In BTS?
Four insulation tools are often used in BTS. They are:
1. PVC insulation tape
2. Gel seal closure
3. Cold shrink kit
4. Heat shrink tubing
What Are Each Tool's Characteristic?
PVC insulation tape: Excellent surface conformity, time-consuming installation, medium service life, low cost;
Gel seal closure: Acceptable surface adaption, very fast installation, long service life, high cost;
Cold shrink kit: Good surface adaption, quick installation, long service life, low cost;
Heat shrink tubing: Good surface adaption, thermo lamp-aided installation, medium service life, low cost
Why Should You Use Cold Shrink Tubing For BTS Cable Insulation
Of all tools available for BTS cable insulation, cold shrink connector insulator is a competitive choice. Compare with other tools, the cold shrink tubing has at least three advantages:
1. Great anti-aging ability
The cold shrink tubing is made of silicon rubber with excellent ductility. This rubber material is insensitive to temperature and weather.
2. Convenient installation
The installation of cold shrink tubing on rf cable joint is very easy: align the tubing on cable joint, and pull out the supporting frame. No additional tools are needed.
3. Cost saving
Other insulation methods often require multiple layers. For example, to insulate cable joint with 3m tape, it is recommended that at least three layers of tape should be applied, and involve two types of tapes. If you use cold shrink tubing, one layer is enough.
