126.96.36.199.1 Connections for and Test of Electrical Parts
(a) with contacts meeting the requirements of 188.8.131.52.1 shall have their electrical parts connected in a noninductive electrical circuit having a constant resistance and in which a current of twice the rated current at rated voltage is flowing. The electric circuit shall be closed but shall not be broken at the contact within the device on each cycle of operation during the tests.
(b) that are SIL rated meeting the requirements of 184.108.40.206.2 shall be monitored for the duration of the tests. If the SIL rated device requires a SIL rated E/E/PES system for monitoring, it shall be provided and connected to the SIL rated device for monitoring the output. If the device output is an electrical contact, the output should be connected to a circuit at the maximum rated current and voltage in a typical load circuit. Documentation shall be made available for the typical connection, application, operation, monitoring, and rating for the SIL rated E/E/PES system.
