    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies test methods and requirements for d.c., a.c., high frequency and pulsed wave-form spark testing of the insulation and sheath of electric cables. Not applicable to telecommunication cables. Limits the use of high frequency and pulsed wave-form testers to cables less than 0.6/1 kV, unless referred to in the cable specification. Coverage includes test voltage, design of electrode and calibration frequency. Also includes detailed annexes and diagrams.
