Method

The cable
length should
not be vary
from the
offered length
of the drum
-There
should be
finish of the
cable i.e. no
joint ,no
puncture etc.

Physical

Could
not
be
measured directly as
conductors
were
compacted. The test
report for the time of
manufacturing taken
from

One complete drum
taken from the
offered lot. The full
drum to be rewind
into another empty
drum with the help of
