In decorating a home, people tend to ignore weak electricity and usually think that only strong electricity requires attention to many things. However, if weak current is not handled properly, it will also bring many hidden dangers and inconveniences to life. For example, signal is unstable, sometimes it's not necessarily reason in your router, and in low-voltage design of your home, something is not right.
In ordinary households, there are network cables, telephone lines and cable TV lines for weak electricity. Many workers directly install various wires into interface for convenience and hassle-free installation, regardless of subsequent maintenance and bending of wires wound together. Although voltage in weak current is low and current strength is small, but if not paid attention, it is easy to cause noise in handset of phone, which affects quality of call, TV screen freezes, and signal is not good, which will affect your life.
To this end, we have specifically summarized weak current details to pay attention to when decorating a home, learn these three tricks, and easily recognize whether home decorators are cheating on their work, and not be deceived.
1. When converting weak currents, it should be considered that strong and weak currents cannot use same wire tube and bottom box. If distance between strong and weak wires is too close, it will cause interference. weak current line interface, and signal instability phenomenon occurs. If this cannot be avoided, it is best to wrap wire tube with aluminum foil. Also, try not to use same wire tube between weak wires to prevent mutual interference.
2. During construction, it must be determined whether an exposed or concealed installation should be installed first. Concealed installation does not affect appearance, but surface installation is convenient for later maintenance and replacement. During construction, pipe must be installed before filling. The number of lines in one pipe should not be too large. Prevents old lines from jerking when replacing. When hiding, pay attention to wall so that box body is 30 cm from ground.
3. Pay attention to installation of weak current box. Too low position will easily attract children to play, especially if touching colored wires randomly, signal will be poor and unstable. In severe cases, current leakage will cause injury. Do not install it near bathroom and kitchen where it is exposed to moisture. The various lines are labeled for ease of maintenance.
Another point to be reminded is that it is best not to change position of low current block while decorating. Since there are new and old paint problems between original wall surface and original wall surface after modification, prone to cracking. Therefore, at beginning of design of entire room, we must communicate well with designer in order to avoid "big shift" of low-current box.
