TEST LEAD PRODUCTS ARBITER SYSTEMS Arbiter Systems Test Leads:Engineered for Optimum Performance and Safety Arbiter Systems®, Inc. test equipment offers outstanding performance, flexibility, and value. Our test leads offer nothing less. Carefully engineered from the ground up, they combine performance, safety, and economy, to make your job simpler. All components are carefully selected to work well together, resulting in long life and excellent reliability. Arbiter Systems' test lead products improve operator safety and ease of use. The Fused Safety Voltage Probe Lead Sets offer in-line, class CC fuse holders with 200,000 ampere interrupting capacity to help prevent hazardous high-energy arc faults. The Universal Test Plug Current Lead Sets, compatible with all common series make-before-break test jacks, offer improved ruggedness for long life and color coding by phase to simplify test setups. The test lead sets are made with rope-lay, ultra-fine stranded wire and your choice of silicone or Santoprene insulation for flexibility over a wide range of temperatures. As an added feature, the flame-retardant PET monofilament armor protects the test leads from damage, such as abrasion and cut-through, a particularly important feature when testing high-energy feeder or service entry circuits and relaying CT secondaries. Only the highest-quality components are used in our test lead assemblies. All current-carrying hardware is made of copper-based alloys for the best conductivity. Mechanical hardware is stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance. Crimp terminals are made from seamless copper tubing, and a copper foil wrap ensures proper termination of finely-stranded wires. Heat-shrink tubing is top-quality clear fluoroplastic, not cheaper alternatives. All connections are provided with strain relief for the wire insulation, and all insulating materials are high-temperature, non-burning materials. Voltage lead sets have color-coded wire, connectors, and accessories, and every current test lead set includes color-coded heat shrink markers at each connection, with phase indication hot-stamped into the material. Where for other manufacturers test leads may be an afterthought, we have put the same care into designing and selecting the components for our test leads that we put into all of our products. Arbiter Systems' lead sets are available as complete assemblies. Also, we will custom assemble test lead sets to your specification. Whether you choose our standard test lead sets, or custom assemblies, you can buy with confidence, knowing that better safety and finer quality are not available at any price. Santoprene and Silicone Test Lead Wire Arbiter Systems offers test lead wire with your choice of two insulation types, Santoprene and silicone. Both silicone and Santoprene insulated lead wires are made using finely-stranded rope-lay copper conductors for exceptional flexibility and limpness. Both insulations retain outstanding flexibility and insulation properties over a wide range of temperatures. We use extra-heavy insulation for an extra margin of safety, and both insulation types are available in colors to coordinate with the input connections on our instruments. Regardless of your choice in insulation, our test lead wires will deliver long, satisfactory service in the field. Silicone is our premier test lead wire. Highly flexible over a wider range of temperatures (-70 to +150° C, -100 to +300° F) than any other flexible insulation material, with excellent resistance to damage due to flame and heat, our silicone wire is highly recommended where safe operation is required with the possibility of high-current through faults. Silicone is nonflammable, and will not emit toxic or irritating fumes at extreme temperatures or under overload conditions. For most applications, our Santoprene insulated test lead wire is a cost-effective alternative to silicone, offering most of the same advantages at a price which compares favorably with PVC, neoprene, and other lower-quality insulations. Because Santoprene is a thermoplastic rubber, however, it will melt at a temperature of+216° C (+421 ° F), and it is primarily recommended for use in applications where high-current faults are less likely. Santoprene offers excellent resistance to arc ignition and good resistance to ignition by a hot wire. And, unlike PVC or halogenated rubber compounds, Santoprene does not emit toxic and irritating fumes when it is overheated or burned, and it is inherently self-extinguishing.
