Megger DLROs Built for Reliability

by Protec Tech Team February 28, 2019

Contact Us Nowlow resistance ohmmeter can be used to identify many of the issues that stem from poor electrical connections. Contact resistance is a term used to characterize the quality of an electrical connection. Electrical bonds are a component of everything that requires a connection to an electrical path such as junction boxes,bus work, circuit breakers and switches to name a few.  Poor connections can lead to excessive heating, premature equipment failure and damage to the electrical system itself. A good testing and maintenance program will include a low resistance ohmmeter to ensure the quality of electrical connections.

Rent the Doble M4000/M4100 for AC Analysis of Electrical Insulation

by Protec Tech Team February 20, 2019

Prevent the hassles of poor insulation with regular maintenance. Power factor testing is one of the common diagnostic methods used to evaluate the health of electrical insulation and to trend the degradation of that insulation over time.  Proper analysis of the data that is obtained in this type of testing is indicative of electrical losses within insulating materials and can be used to plan and prioritization of maintenance, repairs and replacement of electrical assets prior to failure.

For a reliable AC insulation analysis, rent the Doble M4000 M4100 Power Factor Insulation Analyzer from Protec today.
