2.8 Spare

2.9 Endurance test under mechanical and thermal stresses

This test applies only to PA 25 or PAR 25 or PAC 25 or PACR 25 or PAD 25 clamp for aerial insulated
service bundles.

This test is carried out with a 2 x 16 mm² cross-section bundle.

Room temperature shall be between 15°C and 25°C.

2.9.1 Principle

The test arrangement is given in annex B.

The test consists of imposing a strength on the anchoring clamp and on the cores. A heat cycle,
obtained by an intermittent a.c. current flowing in the conductors, is combined with the mechanical
stresses. The mechanical overload is always applied in cold period.

The number of cycles is 500.

2.9.2 Procedure

An anchoring device is fitted at both ends of a service bundle the cross-section of which is 2 x 16
mm². The distance between clamps is at least 5 m and there is at least 1 m coming outside of each
anchoring clamp.

The duration of the basic cycle is 90 min and it consists of applying mechanical and thermal stresses.

Marks are done on the cores at the beginning of the first cycle in order to measure their slippage, if
any, with respect to the tightening devices (clavets, linings, wedges, etc...).

The conductors are raised up to 25°C by a flowing current, and maintained at (25 ± 3)°C.

The mechanical load is then increased up to 1 500 N, within ± 2 % in about 1 min. It is then
maintained at this value for 10 min using a manual or automatic continuous control. At the end of the
tenth minute, the slippages g 0 and g'0 of the two cores with respect to the parts ensuring their position
at both ends are recorded.The assembly is allowed to stabilize mechanically for 24 h while
maintaining temperature control at (25 ± 3)°C on the conductors. The temperature is measured
underneath the insulation. Throughout this period, values of the residual stress versus time are
recorded.

After stabilization, the cores are submitted to heating cycles.


- 13 - NF C 33-042 –1998

The duration of the heating period is 45 min.The temperature rise is achieved by an a.c. flowing
current. The increase temperature speed is chosen to maintain the stabilized state at (70 ± 3)°C for
the last 30 minutes of the heating period.

For the second period, the conductor is left naturally cooled down to (25 ± 3)°C, and the temperature
is then maintained at this value until the end of the cycle.

The mechanical stress is increased up to 800 N at the end of the first cycle in case it would be lower
than this value.

Then, at least once every 24 h, the strength is adjusted to 800 N.

At the end of the test, the slippages g 500 and g'500 of the two cores sheaths with respect to the part
ensuring their position at both ends are recorded.

The test diagram is given in annex C.

2.9.3 Requirements

2.9.3.1 Slippage and adjusting system withstand

The slippages of the cores with respect to the tightening parts shall comply with the following
conditions :

- g0 + g'0  10 mm
- g500 + g'500  10 mm

It is permitted to cut the cores at both sides of the clamps before immersion.

The resistivity of the water shall be less than 200 .m and its temperature is recorded for information.

The voltage generator shall trip for a leakage current of (10,0 ± 0,5) mA.

1 min. The a.c. voltage is applied at a rate of approximately 1 kV/s.

No breakdown shall occur (tripping of voltage generator).
