Abstract : Test setups consisted of 5 methods of checking moisture resistance characteristics of insulated wire by the use of NaCl solutions. Each setup is described in detail and evaluated by comparing the insulation resistance obtained by it with the insulation resistance obtained by the longer and more involved moisture resistance test of MIL-C-5015C. The insulation resistance of the wires was determined at the start of each test and at various intervals during the test. (Author)
