What is the test point used for?

The test point is a way to determine if the cable is energized. The voltage test point is not intended for actual voltage measurements or phasing operations and has no direct connection to the conductor. It uses an impedance capacitance tap and only voltage indicating instruments designed for this application to establish the presence of voltage should be used. A voltage reading will indicate the presence of voltage, but a reading of no voltage is not sufficient to establish a de-energized circuit before touching the connector. Other procedures should be implemented to establish a de-energized circuit.
