Cable and cable sheath testing
Cable and cable sheath testing Shirla allows the user to carry out voltage tests at a test voltage of up to 10 kV on low voltage cables and cable sheaths. The measurements taken include current, voltage and fault resistance. Cable sheath testing is carried out in order to detect damage to cable sheaths. To do this a DC test is carried out in accordance with the applicable standard. The duration of the test should comply with local regulations and can be pre-set in the device.
Cable and cable sheath fault pin-pointing
Cable and cable sheath fault pin-pointing Cable and cable sheath fault pin-pointing is based on the principle of the step voltage method. To do this a cyclical voltage is applied to the cable or cable sheath in accordance with the diagram below. The pulsed voltage can be set at values up to 10 kV. With the step voltage meter (UL or KMF1), the device can locate damage to the cable sheath with the voltage funnel created.
