Regular Cable Insulation Maintenance Can Reduce Repair Costs

  • Uncategorized

Testing cable insulation regularly is a good way of bringing down repair costs. By detecting problems early, you can immediately troubleshoot the problem and prevent it from causing more damage to your cables. 

Cable contaminants such as dust, accumulated water and other elements can damage a cable’s  insulation. When the insulator gets damaged, there will be resistive currents flowing through the insulator. Resistive current is a sign of insulation deterioration. If you don’t detect this early, there is a high risk of insulation breakdown which may lead to fires or other serious electrical accidents. 

If you need equipment like a VLF hipot or insulation resistance meter to test your cables, make sure to look for a reliable test equipment rental service. Because of the high demand for test equipment for rent, you won’t have a hard time looking for a reliable rental service. However, you need to make sure that you are getting your equipment from a trusted provider like Protec Equipment Resources.
