Abstract
The purpose of this work was to develop a ground and pilot connector that will significantly improve mine trailing cable splice performance. The connector design includes connectors for splicing ground and pilot conductors. A distinction is made between connectors suitable for splicing round and flat ground and pilot conductors. A discussion on the suitability of round cable for trailing cable applications is included. A field test was conducted to confirm ground and pilot connector laboratory data. The tests proved the viability of the connector designs and recommended installation techniques in a mine environment.
