AUTOMATIC STRAND GUY VISE
Strand Vise is also called automatic guy wire deadend, it is a cone-shaped accessory that is usually positioned at the bottom of the transmission poles. Here it connects with the down guy wire. Strand vise is also used on the overhead lines where it is connected to the dead-end applications. Its primary function is to terminate the guy wire and the overhead cable.
A strand vise is designed to attach onto the cable using a finger-trap principle. Here, a spring projects its jaws onto the cable hence setting the tool. The jaws are released to prevent them from sliding upwards.
The good thing about strand vise is it does not have nuts for exerting torque onto the cables. This means that there is no need to compress it on the sleeve.
The solid construction of the strand vise makes it reliable for a wide range of applications and also for different environments. It features galvanized steel which is not only strong but also protected from chemical destruction.
Strand vise can be used with different strands including alum weld, galvanized, aluminized, and EHS, steel strand.
The strand vise design makes it compatible with a wide range of industrial strands. It can support a broad range of wires thanks to its universal bale design.
