What is LP Testing?
Limited Power testing is a test procedure for determining how many amps a conductor can accommodate. It is an optional method of testing that cable manufacturers can use to promote the power carrying capacity of their cables. The intent is to aid contractors and end users in determining how much power a given cable can accommodate. For more specific detail click below.
