5 centimeters) to expose the bare wire, bringing the barewire ends close together and parallel, and then wrapping them over each other to make a twist splice as shown in Fig. 2-1. If the wires differ from each other in diameter, you can wrap the smaller wire around the larger one (Fig. 2-2). In any case, once you’ve made the splice, wrap plenty of electrical tape over the connection to protect it from the elements, to keep the splice from slipping apart, and to make sure that the bare wire doesn’t come into contact with anything and cause a short circuit or create a shock hazard.

The relay shown in Fig. 1-13 can function as a normally open or normally closed switch, depending on which contacts you select. It can also switch a single line between two different circuits. Did You Know? These days, engineers install relays in circuits and systems that must handle massive current or high voltage (or both). In applications where the current and voltage remain low to moderate, electronic semiconductor switches, which have no moving parts, offer better performance and reliability than relays.

7. If you get 0 again, repeat steps 3 through 5 with all the AC voltage functions that the meter has, going down until you’ve tested at the lowest AC voltage setting. You should always get a reading of 0. If you don’t, you know that some AC voltage exists between the two points, so they can’t possibly be shorted directly to one another. 8. Assuming that you’ve seen readings of 0 for all the AC voltage settings, repeat the tests with the DC voltage functions, starting with the highest one and working your way down to the lowest one.
