What are electrical cable routine tests?

Routine tests are tests conducted on each batch of cable and required to confirm ongoing conformity. They form part of Eland Cables' QA procedures, with testing undertaken by the expert technicians in The Cable Lab.

Routine tests may differ from one cable type to the next and will be clearly specified in the relevant cable standard. These tests are often non-destructive, some of which may be conducted in line during the manufacturing process.

Examples of routine tests include:

Cable insulation tensile and elongation measurement
