  16. It uses NEDA 15 A or IEC LR6 alkaline batteries for at least 1000 insulation tests.
  17. Warranty period: One Year.

What is insulation tester?

Insulation testers are used for testing or determining the integrity of electrical installations and windings or cables in switchgear, transformers etc.  We use different methods of testing depends upon the type of equipment being tested. These testers do not depend on the single reading but on the collection of relative readings. Always avoid performing the test using Insulation tester on low capacitance equipment because the time-dependent current would diminish quickly and resulting in same measurements.

Why it is necessary to use insulation testers?

Insulation testers play a vital role in this field due to following reasons:

(i) Installation testing: To ensure the public and personnel safety we are using insulation tester at the time of installation. Sometimes, when you perform high dc voltage test between grounded and current carrying conductor you got an electric shock. To prevent or eliminate the possibility of having a life taking short circuit, we are using these testers. This test is performed after the initial installation of the equipment and ensures high-quality installation, protection against shock and most important customer satisfaction.

(ii) Maintenance testing: To protect and enhance the life of electrical systems and motors, we are using insulation testers. Sometimes, electrical systems lead to insulation failure resulting in loss of production or even fire because they are exposed to environmental factors such as temperature, dirt, stress, grease, oil etc. To overcome this problem, we perform periodic maintenance test using insulation tester which provide information about the state of the system & predicts possible failure of the system.
