How would one perform quality control checks on the Thermal Wire® cables in the field or in the office?

We recommend attaching a TAP box to each Thermal Wire cable after it is affixed to the reinforcing cage. An indicator light on the TAP box will let the user know the status of the cable. After the TAP box takes an initial reading from the Thermal Wire cable (approximately 1 minute) the indicator should blink green every three seconds. This indicates that the wire is functioning properly. Any other light color/flashing sequence (red flash, blue flash, fast green flash) indicates there may be damage to the cable.
