1.1 This test method provides the procedures for measuring the room temperature electrical insulation resistance between the thermoelements, and between the thermoelements and the sheath, of a mineral-insulated, metal-sheathed thermocouple or thermocouple cable. It may be used to measure the insulation resistance of bulk lengths of thermocouple cable previously sealed against moisture intrusion or to test a thermocouple having an ungrounded class 2 junction. This method cannot be used to test a thermocouple having a grounded class 1 junction unless the junction is removed prior to testing, after which the thermocouple may be dealt with in the same manner as a thermocouple cable.
1.2 This test method applies primarily to thermocouple cables conforming to Specifications E585/E585M and E2181/E2181M and to thermocouples conforming to Specifications E608/E608M and E2181/E2181M, but may also be applied to thermocouples or thermocouple cables that are suitable for use in air, whose sheath or thermoelements are comprised of refractory metals, that are tested in a dry and chemically inert environment, and that may employ compacted ceramic insulating materials other than magnesia (MgO) or alumina (Al2O3). Users of this test method should note that specifications dealing with compacted ceramic insulating materials other than magnesia or alumina, which are described in Specification E1652, are not currently available. As a result, acceptance criteria must be agreed upon between the customer and supplier at the time of purchase, or alternatively, judgment and experience must be applied in establishing test voltage levels and acceptable insulation resistance values for these types of thermocouples and thermocouple cables.
1.3 This test method may be used for thermocouples or thermocouple cables having an outside diameter of 0.5 mm (0.020 in) or larger.
1.4 Users of this test method should be aware that the room temperature insulation resistance of a mineral-insulated, metal-sheathed thermocouple or thermocouple cable may change during shipment, storage, or use.
1.5 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
1.6 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 appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
