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.

Accurately Measure THD and TID in the Electrical Line with the Dranetz PX5

by Protec Tech Team February 20, 2019

An electrical system that has a lot of distortion, voltage spikes and harmonics can cause serious problems. These electrical interference can cause motors to overheat or lose spinning synchronization, accelerate the breakdown of transformers and cause an increase in power losses. These problems can cause a lot of headache and cost you a lot of money.

Merlin Gerin Secondary Injection Test Set

by Protec Tech Team January 16, 2019

Many circuit breakers are tested by use of secondary injection test equipment applied to the breaker’s trip unit. These specialty test sets check the trip function of the circuit breaker — in other words, whether the electronics in the breaker are functioning properly. When you have work requirements that involve testing and maintaining Merlin Gerin circuit breakers, the Merlin Gerin Secondary Injection Test Set is ideal for verifying the proper operation of the trip circuitry. Merlin Gerin is only one of several well-known brands in the Protec stable of test equipment rental.

Try Cutler Hammer for Secondary Injection Test Kit

by Protec Tech Team January 11, 2019

For checking circuit breaker and protective relay systems, the secondary injection test set is an essential piece of electrical test equipment for companies to use. It differs from the standard primary injection testing method in that it does not require high current to be passed through the primary current path, but rather tests the breaker as a result of low level signals sent directly to the solid state trip device that controls the operation of the breaker.

For Accurate Ductor Testing - Raytech Micro Centurion II Micro-Ohm Meter

by Protec Tech Team January 11, 2019

A contact resistance test (also known as a ductor test) measures the resistance of electrical connections such as joints, terminations and connectors. These can be connections between any two conductors, for instance busbar sections or cable connections. The test measures the resistance at the micro- or milli-ohm level and is used primarily to verify that electrical connections are made properly, and can detect the following problems:
