Locating cable problems through visual inspection, continuity and insulation resistance testing can be difficult and time-consuming especially on long installations. To help you save time, effort and money in troubleshooting cables, consider using a Time Domain Reflectometer. This diagnostic tool is very efficient and accurate because it can help localize the fault from where you are in a matter of seconds. After prelocating the fault, you can then run other diagnostic techniques to verify the defect. Time domain reflectometry is not only effective in finding faults in electrical cables. It can also be used for various installations for cellular, telephone and cable TV installations.Contact Us Now

A ground is a crucial component in any electrical system. It routes electricity to the Earth when electrical insulation fails. Ultimately, it provides a definitive path in theses instances and prevents the electrical path from including anyone or anything else. Additionally, enclosures for electrical apparatus as well as radial conductors for cabling are often grounded in order to provide shielding from electrical noise or radiated interference.

Power factor testing is a diagnostic test that is commonly performed to quantify and trend characteristics of electrical insulation. A regular testing and maintenance program that includes power factor testing can aid in determining the health of electrical insulation as well as where it is in its life cycle and how to plan for taking it out of service.
