Scope

Specifies the test methods to be used for type testing accessories for power cables with rated voltage from 3,6/6 (7,2) kV up to 18/30 (36) kV. Test methods are specified for accessories for extruded and paper insulated cables according to IEC 60502-2 and IEC 60055-1 respectively. Significant technical changes with respect to the previous edition are as follows: a) a test in water has been added for stop ends; b) the heating cycles voltage test has been revised to clarify testing in air and water; c) the testing conditions for the short-circuit tests have been redefined; d) additional information has been provided for testing separable connectors with a metallic housing; e) tests not required by IEC, i.e. an immersion test for outdoor terminations and an impact test, have been included in order to have a common test method document with CENELEC under the IEC/CLC Dresden agreement.
