Voltage Test (Vessel)
Voltage Test (Vessel)

The purpose of the tensile test is to understand the strength of the insulating material which prevents all accessible metal parts under normal stress on an electrical or electronic device from contacting the user.

The test voltages applied in all test and measurement processes are high. Therefore, the safety of people using these devices is of great importance. For this reason, the electrical or electronic devices used must bear the CE mark. These devices must also comply with the following standards:

  • TS EN 61010-1 Safety rules for measurement, control and electrical equipment used in the laboratory - Part 1: General rules
  • TS EN 61000-6-3 Electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) - Part 6-3: General standards - Emission standard for residential, commercial and light industrial environments

Devices that do not bear the CE marking endanger the safety of users, while at the same time undermining the reliability of all data and results obtained.

After the tests are made, all the results obtained are put into a report and put into the technical files of these products. The CE declaration of conformity refers to these reports and is made available to auditors and consumers when necessary.

When conducting stress tests, the vessels of the cable sample are immersed in water at ambient temperature and stored for at least one hour before. A certain tension is then applied continuously between the veins and water for four hours.

Voltage tests are also performed by accredited laboratories within the scope of electrical tests. During these tests, laboratories comply with the criteria set by legal regulations and standards issued by national and international organizations.

A number of standards based on voltage tests are:

  • TS EN 60335 Safety in household and similar appliances
  • Ts en 60204 Safety in electrical equipment of machines
  • Ts en 60950 Security in information technology devices
  • Ts en 60601 Safety in electrical medical devices
