Pricing may vary based on specific test, sample, and test standard
This test is typically used as a process control test to ensure that the measured diameter of a manufactured wire/cable is within the range provided in the wire/cable specification. The wire/cable is measured in multiple locations and the average diameter is reported. For non-uniform cables, such as twisted pairs, measurements are made both for the minimum and maximum diameter.
This test is often included as part of post-environmental exposure testing (e.g. fluid immersion testing) to determine if there has been any insulation expansion or shrinkage.
