INTERNATIONAL ELECTROTECHNICAL COMMISSION
SADDLES, POLE CLAMPS (STICK CLAMPS) AND
ACCESSORIES FOR LIVE WORKING
FOREWORD

The IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) is a worldwide organization for standardization

comprising all national electrotechnical committees (IEC National Committees). The object of the IEC is to

promote international cooperation on all questions concerning standardization in the electrical and

electronic fields. To this end and in addition to other activities, the IEC publishes International Standards.

Their preparation is entrusted to technical committees; any IEC National Committee interested in

the subject dealt with may participate in this preparatory work. International, governmental and

non-governmental organizations liaising with the IEC also participate in this preparation. The IEC

collaborates closely with the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) in accordance with

conditions determined by agreement between the two organizations.

The formal decisions or agreements of the IEC on technical matters, prepared by technical committees on

which all the National Committees having a special interest therein are represented, express, as nearly as

possible, an international consensus of opinion on the subjects dealt with.

They have the form of recommendations for international use published in the form of standards, technical

reports or guides and they are accepted by the National Committees in that sense.

4) In order to promote international unification, IEC National Committees undertake to apply IEC International

Standards transparently to the maximum extent possible in their national and regional standards. Any

divergence between the IEC Standard and the corresponding national or regional standard shall be clearly

indicated in the latter.

The IEC provides no marking procedure to indicate its approval and cannot be rendered responsible for any

equipment declared to be in conformity with one of its standards.

International Standard IEC 1236 has been prepared by IEC technical committee 78: Tools

for live working.
The text of this standard is based on the following documents:

on voting indicated in the above table.

INTRODUCTION

This International Standard covers general matters. It should not be considered complete

in itself and it leaves to each customer the task of adding his own complementary

requirements. These will cover, for example, required mechanical performance and
conditions of interchangeability with equipment already in service.

Section 3: Type tests
3.1 General

In order to show compliance of the material with this standard, the manufacturer shall

provide evidence that the following tests have been carried out successfully on a minimum

of three specimens for each type of assembly.

However, when the differences between several types of tools are limited to a few

characteristics, the tests which are not influenced by these characteristics may be

performed on only one type, and the results applied to the other types.

The different tests, and the order in which these tests are performed are given in annex B.

The tests in tables B.2, 6.3 and 8.4 shall be performed, following the specified order.

NOTE - In tables B.2, B.3 and B.4 the "type test" column includes a reference to the subclause where the

test is explained. Some columns, related to certain types of tools, are divided into sub-columns equal to the

number of mechanical destructive tests to be applied to these tools. These sub-columns also show the

sequence of tests to be applied (for an example see annex B.1).
3.2 Visual and functional inspection

Each tool shall pass the visual and functional inspection to check for manufacturing

defects and its correct function.
Any defect shall be considered as a failure and the tool shall be rejected.
3.3 Dimensional check

Each tool shall be checked by measurement to ensure that it complies with the dimensions

and tolerances as agreed to between customer and manufacturer.
3.4 Mechanical tests - General test conditions and results

The tensile, bending, and slippage force, and the torque values given in table 2 shall be

FTN/s, FBN GN/s and TN
progressively applied in increments at a rate of (0,1 ± 0,025) /s, F /s
until the values of 1,25 FTN , 1,25 FBN , 1,25 FGN and 1,25 TN are reached.
Each value shall then be maintained for 1 min before the results are noted.

These force and torque values shall then be increased again at the same rate as above

until the values of 2,5 FTN , 2,5 FBN , 1,5 FGN and 2,5 T are reached. Each value shall be

maintained for 1 min before the results are noted again.

bearing, until it reaches 1,25 F

No permanent deformation, no minor, major or critical defect shall occur. The test is

then considered complete.
- On outer flange of steel angle

The platform pivot attachment equipped with a tower-type saddle to fit the outer flange

of steel angle, is set on the largest size of steel angle as agreed between the customer

and the manufacturer. The wing-nuts (thumb-nuts) shall be tightened to a torque
of (25 ± 2,5) Nm.

Force shall be applied in the axis of the pivot bearing (see figure 12b) and the results

noted.
Saddles and accessories for hydraulic tension puller
3.5.13

NOTE - There are many different kinds of sets of tools for hydraulic tension puller according to the

characteristics of the network components and the type of insulator strings and yokes (single- or double-

suspension string, double-, triple- or quadruple-tension string).

In this subclause the principle of tests to be carried out is only given for one example.

3.5.13.1 Tensile test on the whole tool

The assembly of the saddles and accessories for hydraulic tensile puller shall be

supported on the test bench with the conductor end yoke fixed to a common support (see

figure 13a). Force shall be applied and the results noted.
3.5.13.2 Saddles and other components

The following tests shall be carried out on the components used with the hydraulic tension

puller.
Bending test on the saddle for triangular conductor yoke
3.5.13.2.1

The saddle shall be mounted on a fixed triangular conductor yoke plate. A force equal

to FBN/2 is applied to each jack rod and the results noted (see figure 13b).

Bending test on the saddle for rectangular yoke
3.5.13.2.2

The saddle shall be mounted on a fixed rectangular conductor yoke plate. A force equal to

/2 is applied to each tenon extension and the results noted (see figure 13c).
FBN
3.5.13.2.3 Tensile test on the tenon extension

The tensile force shall be applied to the tenon extension and the results noted (see

figure 13d).
Bending test on the insulating rope gin
3.5.13.2.4

The bending force shall be applied to the insulating rope gin at the position to give the

maximum bending load and the results noted (see figure 13e).
Tensile test on the block anchoring point of insulating rope
3.5.13.2.5

The tensile force shall be applied to the block anchoring point and the results noted (see

figure 13f).
Pole clamp (stick clamp)
3.5.14
3.5.14.1 Slippage test

The pole clamp shall be mounted on an insulating tube or rod having the largest size

diameter for the clamp and in compliance with IEC 855. The tube is coated with a

silicone-base waterproofing product. The fastening device shall be tightened to a torque of

17 Nm.

The tensile force shall be applied parallel to the axis of the tube without movement of the

wing-nut and the results noted (see figure 14a).

Next, the force is maintained at a constant value, the pole clamp is loosened and a

gradual, controlled slippage shall occur between the clamp and the insulating tube.

3.5.14.2 Bending test (MADCT)

The pole clamp shall be mounted on a metal tube or rod having the largest size diameter

for the clamp. The pole clamp shall be mounted against the limit stop. The bending force

shall be applied parallel to the axis of the tube and the results noted (see figure 14b).

3.5.14.3 Torque test

The pole clamp shall be mounted on a metal tube or rod having the largest size diameter

for the clamp. The torque shall be applied on the wing-nut (thumb-nut) and the results

noted.
3.5.14.4 Tensile test on the assembling

This test is applicable to pole clamps designed to be coupled with pole clamps of the

same type.

1236 ©IEC:1993

The test piece assembly is made with two pole clamps of the same type positioned on a

metal tube or rod (see figure 14c). The tensile force shall be applied in the direction of the

axis of the assembling screw and the results noted.

NOTE - In use, when the assembly consists of two different types of pole clamps, the lower value of FTN

applies.
