    Abstract

    This specification covers mechanical and electrical testing and acceptance criteria for live line and measuring telescoping tools. It shall be used for design, routine, and acceptance testing. It does not cover multiple section or extendable section clampsticks. Mechanical test methods shall include horizontal bending deflection test, free fall impact test, tension test, and vertical deflection test. Measuring device tool need not to comply with mechanical strength requirements of this specification. Electrical test methods shall include electrical design test and electrical withstand test.

It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers mechanical and electrical testing and acceptance criteria for telescoping live line tools.

    1.1.1 A tool designed only for use as a measuring device need not comply with mechanical strength requirements of this specification.

    1.2 The use and maintenance of this equipment is beyond the scope of this specification.

    1.3 This specification does not cover multiple section or extendable section clampsticks.

    1.4 The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. The inch-pound units given in parentheses are provided for information only.

    The following safety hazards caveat pertains to Section 9 only. 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.
