Electrical cables are workhorses, bringing power into your facility. Even as the main conductor, they’re often ignored in the maintenance process. Electrical cables, however, have a relatively short lifespan. Regular testing and maintenance can help you monitor the health of your cables, so they can be repaired or replaced well before they’d fail and leave you with an outage or problem.
Minimal cable testing and maintenance should be done at least every five years. It is critically important to complete multiple tests on medium-voltage cable that feeds a facility, or parts of a facility. Through regular testing it is possible to create a life-span estimate for the cable, allowing for smarter budgeting and problem solving.
