این استاندارد آزمایش های الکتریکی و مکانیکی که به استانداردهای خانواده ANSI C119 متداول هستند را توصیف میکند که برای برقرار کردن ویژگی های اجرایی کانکتورها مورد استفاده قرار می گیرند تا برای مفصل های آلومینیوم به آلومینیوم، آلومینیوم به مس، مس به مس هادی های لخت و عایق شده استفاده شوند.
Included within the ANSI C119.0 standard
a) Recommendations and requirements for instrumentation and equipment used for performing tests
common to the ANSI C119 family of standards
b) Two optional tests that were previously part of ANSI C119.4-2011: Optional Fault Current Test
(Annex B) and Optional Corrosion Test (Annex C). The subcommittee has provided these
optional performance tests as references in response to users who have requested guidance for
these types of additional performance tests
c) An alternate, accelerated current cycle test method, henceforth referred to as the current cycle
submersion test (CCST). The CCST method differs from the traditional current cycle test (CCT) in
that test conductors are rapidly cooled by immersion in chilled water at the beginning of the
“current-OFF” cycle, and the test requires fewer total current-ON and current-OFF cycles.
Comparative testing has demonstrated that the CCST method will provide essentially the same
performance test results as the traditional CCT in fewer test cycles
The techniques and methods presented in this standard were initially developed under the direction of the
Transmission and Distribution Committee of the Edison Electric Institute (EEI). Tentative performancetype
specifications for electrical characteristics were issued in joint report form in 1958 by a steering
committee of EEI and an advisory committee of manufacturers on the aluminum conductor research
project (EEI Pub. No. 59-70, Tentative Specifications for Connectors for Aluminum Conductors).
