What material is used between the conductor and the cable insulation? strand shielding
When pulling cable, the snatch block and pulling rope is attached to the pulling-in iron in the manhole
Which is a determining factor in the spacing between manholes? cable weight
Using the winch method, how many people does it take to pull underground cable safely? 5
What term describes an underground cable that is brought up through a conduit and attached to an overhead line? riser
The device used to terminate high-voltage cables is called a high-voltage termination
What is the purpose of a cable end seal? prevents moisture from entering the cable
When making a load-break elbow, before attaching the crimp connector to the cable make sure you align the hole on the end of the connector with the equipment bushing

What must you do when work takes place in a manhole that is 15 feet deep or more? use a power blower for the entire work period
Which is not a manhole ventilation method? funnel
How often must a gas test be made in a confined space? continuously
What is the approximate bending radius for underground cable? 5-12 times cable diameter

When you perform maintenance on a cable, what is the acceptable test voltage? 75% of acceptance test voltage
Power-factor tests can be performed at any voltage without exceeding the line-to-ground rating of the cable
What is the easeiest and quickest way to find a cable fault? visually
When you use the MM-1 fault locator or the thumper to locate a cable fault, what signal is produced when you are over the fault location? fault locator signal fades out at the fault; thumper signal increases ot the loudest volume
In many cases, a cable fault is located at a splice
Which cable splice kit requires the most labor to install? conventional taped splice kit
What is the preferred method when making splices? factory pre-form splice kit
What should be your first step when troubleshooting a pad mount transformer? take a complete set of secondary phase-to-phase and phase-to-ground voltage readings
If tests indiciate an off-ratio winding, how would you verify whether the problem was in the transformer or not? take secondary current readings on all three phases
Which airfield lights have yellow filters installed for the last 2,000 feet of runway? runway end lights
Which airfield lights provide positive identification of the beginning of the operational runway surface for approaching aircraft? Threshold lights
Which airfield lights are required on all lighted runways? runway end lights
Which airfield fixture is unidirectional? Approach
Which of the following items are found on ALSF-2 approaches? 500 foot bar
What color is used for the taxiway edge light? blue
At what minimum distance from the usable landing area does a station beacon also require an identification beacon? 2 miles
One of the main control panels for the sirfield lights is in the vault; where is the other panel located? control tower
Approximately how far should the airfield vault be from the runway? 3,000 feet
What should you have available if you system uses 48-volt DC control? an extra power supply module
How many conductors does the standard control cable for an airfield lighting control system contain? 7
Which airfield vault device is used to swap location of control of the airfield lights? transfer switch
What airfield lighting control system device compensates for the voltage drop from the tower to vault? low-burden pilot relay

What is performed before installing a regulator? pre-installation check
What size counterpoise is used for airfield lighting circuits? No. 4 AWG
When replacing an IL transformer, what must the first listed amperage on the IL match? the maximum amperage out put of the regulator
What feature is common to elevated airfield lights? They are built with frangible construction
What is the primary purpose of the rotating/airport beacon? to guide the pilot to the airfield
How many revolutions per minute does the airport beacon turn? 6
What occurs when the operating lamp in the airport beacon fails? a reserve lamp is placed in operation automatically
What voltage is neccessary to run the airport beacon? 120/240 volts
What is the minimum number of hazard beacons used on one side of an extensive or extremely high antenna? 3
What device can be used to change voltage up or down for the airport beacon lamps? the tap changer in the distribution transformer
