Introduction – 7 minutes
Describes the design and construction of a single-conductor PILC cable. Identifies five types of splices made to a PILC cable, and describes a situation in which each might be used.

Cable Preparation/Splicing PILC Cable – 9 minutes
Identifies some of the tools and equipment used for preparing a PILC cable to be spliced. Using a splice kit and a specific set of instructions, describes how to prepare two PILC cable ends for a straight splice.

Splicing PILC Cable – 10 minutes
Using a splice kit and a specific set of instructions, describes how a straight splice can be made to a PILC cable.

Transitional Splice – 9 minutes
Using a specific set of instructions, describes how a transitional splice can be made between a single-conductor solid dielectric cable and a single-conductor PILC cable.

Trifurcating Transitional Splice, Part 1 – 11 minutes
Using a splice kit and a specific set of instructions, explains how to prepare for a trifurcating transitional splice between three single-conductor dielectric cables and a three-conductor PILC cable.

Trifurcating Transitional Splice, Part 2 – 11 minutes
Using a splice kit and a specific set of instructions, explains how a trifurcating transitional splice may be made between three single-conductor dielectric cables and a three-conductor PILC cable. 

PILC Cable Terminations – 8 minutes
Demonstrates one method of installing a termination on a paper-insulated lead-covered (PILC) cable.

15 kV Class PILC Cable Preparation – 11 minutes
Identifies the components of a PILC cable. Describes and demonstrates how to prepare a three-conductor PILC cable for termination.

15 kV Class PILC Cable Termination – 12 minutes
Demonstrates how to build a stress cone on a three-conductor PILC cable. Demonstrates how to attach connector stems. Demonstrates how to install and assemble a pothead onto a cable. Demonstrates how to seal a three-conductor PILC cable termination.
