The ELASTOCON EB 16-II Hot Set Tester is used for performing hot set testing of cable material according to IEC 60811-2-1 and other equivalent standards. The Tester is built on an ageing oven which performs inside the apparatus requirements in IEC 811.
The samples are introduced through a specially designed small opening in the top of the oven in order to avoid too much heat loss when inserting and cutting the samples.
The oven has a controlled air exchange rate and low air speed which can be controlled by a flow meter, meeting the requirements for ageing ovens in IEC 811.
Measurements are made through the window with a laser pointer mounted on a measuring scale placed on the door. With a push on a button on the scale, the elongation is measured and the values automatically are entered into a spreadsheet template through a Bluetooth connection.
The templates are for testing 3 flat samples, 3 round samples, 4 flat samples with possibility to have 2 different materials, and 4 round samples with possibility to have 2 different materials.
The set is measured outside the oven with a digital calliper which is also connected to the computer. A finished report can be produced by using a standard spreadsheet software.
