Testing continuity & HiPot using multiconductor cable testers is an essential part of the workflow. Thorough testing prior to and after installation reduces the likelihood of device failure including catastrophic events such as fire. It is simply not sufficient to rely on “glow-wire” specifications to prevent fire. In this article we introduce a basic understanding of what ‘thorough’ continuity and HiPot testing entails.
