Prevent the hassles of poor insulation with regular maintenance. Power factor testing is one of the common diagnostic methods used to evaluate the health of electrical insulation and to trend the degradation of that insulation over time. Proper analysis of the data that is obtained in this type of testing is indicative of electrical losses within insulating materials and can be used to plan and prioritization of maintenance, repairs and replacement of electrical assets prior to failure.
For a reliable AC insulation analysis, rent the Doble M4000 M4100 Power Factor Insulation Analyzer from Protec today.
The Doble M4000 M4100 Power Factor Insulation Analyzer is a popular 12 kV power factor test set commonly used to analyze ac insulating systems within power transformers, bushings, circuit breakers, generators and other power system apparatus. It uses advanced techniques for eliminating electrical interference that might affect the test results. This features ensures high accuracy during testing without the unwanted influences of electrical interference found in high voltage environments.
Based on testing parameters, the Doble M4000 M4100 Power Factor Insulation Analyzer generates precise test results that are reported in terms of power factor (or dissipation factor), leakage current, capacitance, and watts loss. This instrument can also be utilized to perform transformer excitation tests; and with the appropriate accessories, leakage reactance (short circuit impedance), and tip-up tests.
