UL Tests

Temperature-rise
UL have carried out tests on complete switchboards up to 5000A. The temperature-rise did not exceed 65K with tin plated copper bars or 50K with none plated copper bars. Likewise, the temperature-rise in motor starter units did not exceed maximum limit.

Dielectric voltage withstand
The CUBIC modular system has been tested to 2.2 kV for 1 minute without breakdown. The tests were carried out between:
a. Uninsulated live parts and enclosure
b. Terminals of opposite polarity
c. Uninsulated live parts of different circuits.

Short circuit withstand
The CUBIC busbar systems up to 5000A (S7000) have been tested by UL.
The following short circuit rating (RMS) was obtained, I: Up to 100 kA.

Grounding and bounding
In CUBIC assemblies the effective connection between the exposed conductive parts has been tested by UL.
The resistance between the ground bus and either an exposed dead metal or the ground contact was tested to be less than 0.1 ohm. Likewise, the resistance between the ground bus and the grounding contacts was measured to be less than 0.005 ohm.
