Where Should I Apply 3M Waterproof Electrical Tape For Jumper Cable?
All jumper cable's connector part needs to apply 3M waterproof tapes. Here are the common positions we need to pay attention:
1. The intersection of jumper cable and antenna
2. The intersection of jumper cable and RRU
3. The intersection of jumper cable and main feeder
4. The outdoor intersection of Jumper cable and grounding kit
How Should I Wind 3M Waterproof Electrical Tape to the Jumper Cable Properly?
First, clean the intersection of the jumper cable. After the intersection is cleaned dust-free, unwind the 3M waterproof electrical tape and strip the attachment. Stretch the tape about 1~2 times longer.
Second, wind the stretched tape from 30mm below the connector. Wind the tape as tight as you can every time. A new round tape layer should be held down at the half of the previous layer, and so on. Wind a single layer of 3M tape at the bottom.
After applying one layer of 3M waterproof electrical tape, apply two layers of 3M mastic tape on top of the previous tape. The mastic tape's winding procedure is the same as waterproof tape.
Finally, apply three layers of 3M waterproof tape on top of the 3M mastic tape.
Is That Procedures Enough For Waterproof Treatment?
Yes. Moreover, for the best waterproof effect, you can use an additional cold-shrink tube outside the mastic tape. This is optional.
