Cable shield delamination

Many factors can contribute to cable failures including voids, cracks, irregularities and improper bend radii, poor support means, environmental instabilities and installation difficulties. These problems can cause partial discharges that lead to complete failure.

Utilization of the IQ Program can enhance cable reliability by detecting these imperfections before complete failure occurs.
