We have enhanced our Partial Discharge (PD) testing services. Following a re-organisation, a room has been established which is dedicated to PD testing. This gives us a smart and clean environment that is exclusively used for testing.
It's not just the aesthetics which are spotless, a clean, filtered power supply has been installed as part of the improved technical services for the room. This allows PD testing up to 10kV. The room now also has a computer data connection to both the company’s main computer server and the company’s Voltech testing network.
For safety, RCD protection has been installed on the high voltage circuits and there is an emergency cut off switch for operator use. The room has also been altered for operator welfare reasons. These alterations include a new heating system and better lighting and safety equipment.
Further development is planned and this should increase the PD test’s voltage capability to 20kV.
