Guide for Slip and Pull-Out Strength Testing of Bolted Dead End Strain Clamps
|Publication Date:||14 May 2012|
This guide defines testing procedures for the slip and pull-out strength testing of bolted dead end strain clamps for use on transmission and distribution lines. This guide covers initial certification testing. For routine acceptance testing, refer to IEEE Std C135.61TM.1
The purpose of this guide is to provide a repeatable and standardized methodology for performing mechanical slip and pull-out strength testing for a bolted dead end clamp and conductor combination. A bolted dead end clamp and conductor combination tested in accordance with this guide should give reasonable assurance to the user that the clamp and conductor combination will perform in a satisfactory manner, provided they have been installed in accordance with the manufacturer's recommendations.
