Method for spark testing of cables

Executive summary

Spark-test method for the detection of defects in the insulation or sheathing layers of electric cables.

Abstract

This European Standard specifies the spark-test method intended for the detection of defects in the insulation or sheathing layers of electric cables. For single core cables with no outer metallic layer, the general process is accepted as being equivalent to subjecting samples of those cables to a voltage test in water.

This standard specifies the operational requirements for the spark-test equipment, as well as the principal characteristics, functional parameters and calibration procedures for each type of test equipment.

History and related standards

This European Standard partially supersedes BS 5099:1992.
