- Hello Mr. Lua,
We had a discussion about this before.
At that time you indicated that you had purchased a 25 mm elongation tester but that the maximum length between the jaws was only 24.9 mm.
I, as moderator, replied as follows:
"If there is a tolerance on the length of the conductor in the tester itself, it will be in your Standard. I suggest you look up the Standard and read it carefully. If the Standard does not allow a tolerance, then the tester must be modified."
This is still a valid answer as the Standard will clearly define the exact sample distance between the jaws of the elongation tester along with other requirements. We presume you require this for certified test reports to be sent to your customers.
