A rig was fabricated to test single-strand excitation and current sharing in Nb3Sn Rutherford Cables. Measurements were performed on a 40 centimeters length of 27-strand cored and non-cored cables which were mounted on a U-shaped holder. Samples were reacted and epoxy impregnated using magnet-like protocols. Current was injected into a single strand at varying I/Ic and a heat pulse was used to initiate current sharing. Current-distribution was measured using voltage taps. These measurements were performed as a screening for cable and cable preparation protocol for larger scale measurements.
