Why is Power Factor Testing Important?

Preventive maintenance provides a key tool for minimizing the chances of catastrophic equipment failures.  One type of preventive maintenance testing lies in testing done with equipment such as Power Factor test sets.  Power factor testing evaluates the quality and integrity of electrical equipment insulation and makes it possible to detect problems without making an internal visual inspection. The result is a significant decrease in maintenance cost and downtime. Power factor testing is one of the best testing techniques for predictive and preventive maintenance.

Depend on the AEMC 6250 Micro-Ohmmeter for Precise Low-Resistance Measurements

The installation & maintenance of power cables, switchgear & voltage tap changers requires that cable joints and switch contacts be at the lowest possible resistance to avoid the joint or contact from becoming excessively hot, a poor cable joint or switch contact will soon fail due to this heating effect.
