The line isolation monitor is a critical component of an isolated power system. The line isolation monitor continuously monitors the isolated power system's impedance from all conductors to ground. Impedance includes both resistive and capacitive readings. This value is then used to calculate the Total Hazard Current (THC), which dictates what current could flow if a patient were to come in contact with a conductor to ground. The THC reading provides advanced warning of issues that are present in the system.READ MORE >>

The Megger Battery Ground-Fault Locator allows tracking and locating of ground faults on live or dead battery systems. Its locating ability is only limited by the accessibility of the battery cable.
The instrument can make measurements in the presence of dc current (up to 20 amperes) and ac ripple (charging current up to 0.5 ampere).READ MORE >>
As transformers age their internal condition degrades, increasing the risk of failure. When a transformer is new it has sufficient electrical and mechanical strength to withstand unusual system conditions. As transformers age, their insulation strength can degrade to the point that they cannot withstand system events such as short-circuit faults or transient over-voltages.READ MORE >>
The Dranetz PX5 Power Quality Analyzer provides accurate measurements of power quality harmonics and events with a large sample rate for better resolution and capture event accuracy.
Applications offered within the system allow for flexibility and versatility in testing. These include transient capture, survey feature diagnostics, capacitor event capture, detection of load distortions, flicker data capture and harmonics events. A special feature in addition to the varied testing is the included software that allows the Dranetz PX5 Power Quality Analyzer to be connected to PC or laptop for added access and analysis. Users may also opt to utilize the 4 gig flash memory for added onboard storageREAD MORE >>
To understand insulation testing you don’t need to go into the mathematics of electricity, but one simple equation – Ohm’s law – can be very helpful in appreciating many aspects.READ MORE >>
Electrical stress, normal weathering and contaminants cause insulators to lose resistivity, so it is a good idea to check for problems even if the equipment seems to be working fine. There are times that problems are already present but the insulation is still able to tolerate the fault. If the insulator fails, the damage may be catastrophic.READ MORE >>
