ASTM F1826-00(R2021) pdf free download.Standard Specification for Live Line and Measuring Telescoping Tools
1. Scope
1.1 This specification covers mechanical and electrical test- ing and acceptance criteria for telescoping live line tools. 1.1.1 A tool designed only for use as a measuring device need not comply with mechanical strength requirements of this specification. 1.2 The use and maintenance of this equipment is beyond the scope of this specification. 1.3 This specification does not cover multiple section or extendable section clampsticks. 1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses after SI units are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains to Section 9 only. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appro- priate safety, health, and environmental practices and deter- mine the applicability ofregulatory limitations prior to use. 1.6 This international standard was developed in accor- dance with internationally recognized principles on standard- ization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recom- mendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
3. Terminology
3.1 Definitions— Terminology used in this specification is in accordance with Definitions F819. 3.2 Definitions ofTerms Specific to This Standard: 3.2.1 acceptance test, n—one made at the option of the purchaser to verify that a product meets design criteria. 3.2.2 design test, n—one made on a sample treated as representative of an industrial product. These tests generally will not be repeated in quantity production. 3.2.3 dimensional check, n—measurements made to verify that a product complies with the dimension stated by the manufacturer. 3.2.4 hydrophobic, adj—lacking affinity for water. 3.2.5 routine test, n—a type of test made regularly on production material. 3.2.6 telescoping live line tool, n—an extendable multiple section FRP tool designed to carry an attachment to perform mechanical tasks. 3.2.7 telescoping measuring tool, n—an extendable multiple section FRP tool designed only to measure vertical heights. 3.2.8 visual inspection, n—a visual check made to detect manufacturing defects.
4. Significance and Use
4.1 This specification shall be used for design, routine, and acceptance testing oflive line and measuring telescoping tools.
5. Ordering Information
5.1 Include the following information when ordering tele- scoping live line or measuring tools, or both: 5.1.1 Quantity. 5.1.2 Catalog number. N OTE 1—Live line tools may also be designed as a measuring tool. 5.1.3 Tested to meet ASTM Specification F1826 design tests.
10. Electrical Design Test Specimen Preparation
10.1 Three telescoping tools shall each have a specimen cut from each telescoping section. Each specimen shall be 300 mm (12 in.) in length. 10.2 Conditioning Prior to Electrical Tests: 10.2.1 Prior to the first or initial electrical test, the sample shall be cleaned inside and out with a suitable solvent, as recommended by the manufacturer, specifically a solvent that neither destroys the materials from which the tube is made nor leaves any residue on the surface of the sample. 10.2.2 All tests shall be made before and after exposure to moisture conditioning, as specified, using 60 Hz voltage. 10.3 Moisture Conditioning: 10.3.1 Before Current Measurement —After initial cleaning (see 10.2.1), the specimen shall remain in the ambient atmo- sphere of the test premises for at least 24 h. 10.3.2 Upon completion of the before-moisture condition- ing electrical test (l 1 ), the specimen shall then be placed in a suitable chamber and undergo the following conditioning prior to the after-moisture conditioning electrical test, (l 2 ). See Table 3.
11. Electrical Test Methods
11.1 Electrical Tests— The test apparatus shall be designed to provide the operator full protection in the performance of duties and provide reliable means ofde-energizing and ground- ing the high-voltage circuit. 11.1.1 During the course of the testing, there shall be no sign of flashover or puncture on any of the samples. 11.1.2 The ambient temperature for the test location shall not be lower than 20 °C (68 °F). 11.2 Electrical Design Test—Atypical test setup is shown in Fig. 4. Details are shown in Figs. 5-10. The measuring equipment should not be less than 1.8 m (6 ft) from the high-voltage electrode. Shield and ground the assembly of connection for the measuring equipment. Vertically mount the test specimen at least 0.9 m (3 ft) above the floor on an insulating support.
