Protec Offers The Equipment You Need for Proper AC/DC Testing

by Protec Tech Team August 07, 2015

AC testing gives a charging current that is extremely large compared to other types of testing. AC frequently is used for high-potential testing; voltage is increased to some specified point to see if the insulation can stand that particular voltage. It is a GO/NO-GO type of test and can cause deterioration of the insulation, in contrast to a DC test which is basically non-destructive.
