Protec Offers Power Factor Test Sets from Doble, Megger and Omicron

by Protec Tech Team June 29, 2016

Power factor tests compare the capacitive current to the resistive current used by a piece of equipment.  If the capacitive current becomes large in relation to the resistive current, it indicates a potential problem with the insulation.  Insulation breakdown often leads to equipment breakdown.

Protec Equipment Resources offers many power factor test sets for rent. These units apply voltage to the conductors while measuring losses to ground. By comparing the results to historical results, abnormal conditions can be easily identified. Further tests can help determine exactly where the problem exists.  
While power factor testing usually involves transformers and breakers, tests can be useful on other types of equipment such as switches, motors and voltage regulators. 


The Revolutionary Applications of the Omicron CPC 100

by Protec Tech Team March 07, 2016

Electrical tests on transformers, current transformers, voltage transformers, grounding systems, lines and cables, and circuit breakers can be performed with the Omicron CPC 100 Multi-Functional Primary Test System.

The patented test system replaces several individual testing devices and offers new, innovative testing methods.

The Omicron CPC 100 Multi-Functional Primary Test System is the base for multiple accessories. These facilitate further applications, such as tan delta measurements, as well as line and ground impedance measurements.
