3M™ SLiC™ Aerial Terminals are distribution terminals and closures contained within a lightweight, double-walled plastic housing. All three sizes of terminals are offered with rubber end seal (RES) or spiral end seal (SES) versions to ensure a snug fit on cables, virtually eliminating the need for drip collars.
3M™ SLiC™ Aerial Terminal 328 is an aerial, strand-mount, free-breathing terminal for copper application. The terminal can be used in inline or butt splicing configurations and can be installed very close to a pole for easy access. A new feature of this terminal is the easy-to-open latch and place for security lock if necessary.
The 328 terminal closure is comprised of two separate chambers, a distribution cable splice chamber and a drop termination chamber. The terminal chamber is designed to accommodate up to 10-pair configurations of multi-pair (3M™ IDC Block ATS/TR Block) or single-pair 3M™ Terminal Blocks MX2000.
The double-wall molded closures are available with two types of end seals (spiral or rubber). The end seals of the SLiC terminals are designed to assure proper sizing and a snug fit around the cable sheath. This virtually eliminates the need for drip collars to prohibit water from entering the splice chamber.
The terminal can be extended easily in both directions by cutting a standard 3.6” X 33” or 5.6"x33" SLiC closure in half.
