Which AEMC Ground Tester Suits Your Needs

  • Uncategorized

Ground lines in an electrical system should have a very a low resistance to current to ensure proper and stable operation. Grounding systems are designed to transfer unwanted interference or current to the ground where the current can dissipate safely. If the connection of the grounding system and the earth is poor, instabilities and other problems may arise. 

Some of the causes of poor ground connections are dry soil, corroded terminals and broken ground leads. It is important to regularly check for problems in the grounding system so you can immediately recondition the part and restore proper operation. If you are thinking of getting a ground tester, you might want to check out these popular testers from AEMC. They are engineered to quickly test ground connections accurately. Below are the specifications of each model to help you decide which tester meets your needs.
