Why did your Medium Voltage cable fail?

Date: Wednesday, April 8, 2020

Time: 2:00pm - 3:00 pm


Cable failures occur at the most inconvenient of times, for your business and for your customers. Sometimes these unplanned failures lead to collateral damage to neighboring equipment and cause extended power outages that can shutdown critical manufacturing lines or infrastructure.

This webinar provides insights on the nature of cable failures, the sources, how the degradation advances and influences local dielectric properties, and some things you can look for as you work towards enhancing the reliability of your cable system.
