Evaluate the Metrel 2088 Ground Tester through Protec
An electrical ground is a conductor driven to the soil that serves as a reference point or return path of an electrical circuit. It also serves as a protective measure to prevent the electrical chassis from coming in contact with dangerous voltages in case the insulation of the device fails.
The ground or earth of the power system should be tested regularly because it protects personnel from electrical shock in the event the insulation of an electrical device fails. The effectiveness of a ground can be affected by the weather. A faulty ground can be a source of fire or injury. A common tester used for conducting maintenance tests is the Metrel 2088 ground tester. It allows you to conduct fall potential, slope or point to point tests. It has a variable output voltage of 50 volts to 1000 volts and can test resistances of up to 29.9 Giga Ohms. It can measure true root mean square currents from 0.1 to 200 amperes. This ground tester has an internal memory that can store up to 1000 test results.
