This was powering a HiFi in a warehouse. As we say to our clients, and to you, the vast majority of the faults we pick up we do during the inspection which is done by eye. You too have eyes and are therefore equiped to spot many of the faults we find, all you need is to have an awareness.
In hte case of this cord the outer sheath has done it’s job. it’s supposed to get damaged preventing the insulators (Coloured wires inside) getting damaged.
