SIVIKO ACT is an innovative automated cable tester that offers reliable and convenient automated solution for cable manufacturers and distributors alike that want to ensure the quality of their products by running in-house electric tests for active resistance and voltage.

Safety standards
Working with high-voltage is dangerous and for us this is central concern embedded in the design of SIVIKO ACT. It has several layers of safety: independent hardware and software safety chains, safety fence with auto-lock unit, automatic grounding unit - Siviko AGS, indicators and emergency buttons.

Flexible software
Siviko OS allows the operator to enter new types of test objects and define the needed standards, essentially building his own library. It also stores information about each event and the performed tests.

Automated tests
Siviko OS and Siviko SMART PLCs are responsible for the conduct of automated tests by switching between the wires, collecting measured data, monitoring safety conditions and preparing test reports.
Ease of use
Simply connect the test leads to the test object by matching the color coding of both, select the type of the cable and fill-in the length of the cable. Siviko ACT will save you time by doing all the rest for you.

Siviko ACT performs automated electric tests for active resistance and voltage by any standard defined by the operator in the software. Thus it helps you to monitor the quality of your products.

Siviko ACT performs tests for conductors with active resistance up to 200Ω and test voltage up to 5 kV of cables that have up to 5 conductors and length of up to 5 km, with cross section from 0,5 to 50 mm2. Upon request the scope can be customized.

Value proposition

SIVIKO ACT enables you to test the quality of your cables in an easy, safe, fast and non-destructive manner. You only have to connect all the wires to the test leads by matching the color coding of both, to select the type of the cable and to punch-in the length of the cable. The automatic cable tester will do all the rest for you. It will run automated tests for resistance and voltage for each conductor, it will look after the safety of the operator and in the end it will print out a protocol stating whether the cables have passed or failed the requirements set by the respective standard. This will allow you to improve tremendously the quality control of your products without slowing your work processes or damaging the cables. 

Why perform electric tests?

The electric tests for resistance and voltage for the whole length of the cable are basic indicators for the material and manufacturing quality of the cable core and its insulation layers. Higher resistance shows that the material of the core is of poor quality, which will result in poor power quality by increasing the losses. The high voltage test shows the quality of the insulation. If break in the insulation occurs during the high voltage test then the insulation has a manufacturing defect or is made of poor quality materials or it is simply insufficient. Such low quality insulation will inevitably result in short-circuit that might cause fire, damage the electrical equipment or cause fatal accidents. Therefore it is understandable, why many customers require test report that ensure the quality of their purchase. 


The standards stipulate that the electrical tests require the cable to be in the dry state and at ambient temperature when voltage is applied of the magnitude given in the relevant cable standard, supplied from an a.c. source, between each conductor and all the other conductors and, if any, the metallic layer connected to earth. Then the voltage has to be gradually increased and maintained at the full value for the duration given in the relevant cable standard. 

If one is to manually perform such tests, he is to face many problems and inconveniences. First of all he has to have a.c. power source that could reach the desired high voltage of up to 5000 V. Second, he should have appropriate calibrated measurement equipment to measure the resistance and voltage and he has to be able to connect them properly and to run the appropriate tests. Third he has to manually switch between each and every conductor and they could be up to 5, 7 or more in a single cable. This is not only time-consuming, but could also lead accidents due to the high voltage applied. Last, but not least the operator has manually to write down the test results in his test protocol and then to keep the records organized and available. 


SIVIKO ACT takes care of all those problems. It has its own high-voltage a.c. power supply. It is equipped with high quality and with high accuracy measurement devices that can be easily disconnects and sent for calibration in certified laboratory if necessary. The dedicated software SIVIKO OS and the PLCs SIVIKO SMART enable the automated switching between the tested conductors, collect the measured data, monitor the safety conditions and prints out a test report at the end. It is also possible to input the requirements set by any standard.
