Electric wire and cable smoke density tester complies with GB/T17651.1~2-1998IEC61034-1~2:1997  “Measurement of smoke density of cables burning under defined conditions “. The tester is a testing equipment measuring the smoke generated when the cable or wire used for the transmission of electrical energy and signals is horizontally burned under a specified condition.( IEC61034 requires the volume of the smoke chamber to be 3m3.)



The national cable industry strives to develop cables and materials with low smoke and no halogen. These kinds of products requires the smoke density of cables to be measured. The main principle of smoke density measurement is that the light beam penetrating the smoke generated by cables or materials under specified combustion or radiation conditions suffers from attenuation, and the light density as well as smoke density can then be figured out via measuring the light transmittance of the beam. The instrument can test the combustion smoke characteristic of cable or fiber cable, and can provide reference for the cable requirements in the rescue area.
