FAT for Instrumentation Cables (500V)

08/07/2016 2:11 AM

Friends,

Is this statement correct "For factory inspection & Test Plan of Instrumentation cables as per IEC 60502-1" because as per my understanding IEC60502-1 is related 1.0 KVrated voltage ,while instrument cable is 500V of rated voltage.

Which spec should be used for 500V I&C cable?

Friend,

Are you taking a test?

If so you have only two choices, yes or no.

You have a 50-50 chance either way.

Or, you could do your own homework and look for the answer in the applicable specifications, or God forbid, do your own job and look for the answer in the applicable specifications!

The boldfaced excerpt has no predicate, and thus does not constitute a statement.

However, it may be that an ordinary I&C spec is 500V, but the client or situation calls for a higher spec.

By far the best person to ask is whoever wrote the spec.

How you can do a factory inspection and test of cables is a mystery to me. After all, such testing is void once the required length gets cut off the drum at site. Still, whoever wrote the spec must surely know what to do. I'd ask there, only I'm not going to do that for you.
