Heat cycle test
Heat cycle tests establish the long term electrical properties of all current carrying fittings and clamps. Their purpose is to ensure that fittings do not deteriorate after long-term usage. They provide insights on the behaviour of the used wire or cable.
The heat cycle test can be carried out on class A Fittings, conductors and overhead catenary systems. The IEC 61284 standard is commonly used for class A fittings. Customer specific requirements are possible as well.
