Preparing the Connection Cable

Always proceed as follows to prepare each connection cable for connection to multipole plugs.


  1. Strip 40 mm (1.57 in) of cable sheath from the end of the connection cable to which the multipole plug is to be attached. When doing so, ensure that no pieces of cable fall into the enclosure.
  2. Strip off 6 mm (0.24 in) of the conductor insulation from each of the required connection cable conductors.
  3. Trim unneeded insulated conductors of the connection cable flush with the cable sheath.
  4. Push one bootlace ferrule onto each stripped insulated conductor up to the stop, if necessary.
