Voltage Test

Voltage tests measures the voltage across specific points in an electrical circuit or system. It helps determine the voltage levels present and ensures they are within expected performance and safe operating limits.

Current Test 

Current Test Current tests measure the flow of electric charge through a conductor or component to assess power consumption, load characteristics, and circuit behavior. This helps diagnosing circuit functionality, identifying overloads, faulty wiring and ensure components operate within specified current ranges.

Global Service

Resistance Test

Resistance tests measure the opposition to current flow within a circuit using tools like ohmmeters or multimeters to ensure components such as resistors, conductors, and connections are functioning within their specified resistance range. Any anomalies in resistance testing can indicate problems such as short circuits, open circuits, or degraded insulation.

Inductance Test 

Inductance tests measure the property of a component to oppose changes in current flow. It helps evaluate the characteristics and performance of inductors and inductive circuits. Identifying issues like shorted turns, open windings, or core damage.

Capacitance Test 

Capacitance tests determine the ability of a component to store electrical charge. It is used to assess the health and performance of capacitors and capacitive circuits or identify issues like capacitance drift, leakage, or complete failure.

Impedance Test 

Impedance tests assess the total opposition to the flow of alternating current in a circuit, comprising resistance, capacitance, and inductance. This test is crucial for analyzing the performance and integrity of AC circuits and systems. It can be used to help identify component degradation, improper connections, or circuit faults.

Power Test 

Power tests measure the rate at which electrical energy is transferred or converted within a circuit or system. This helps evaluate the efficiency and performance of electrical devices and systems. It is also used to determine power consumption, identify energy losses, and verify that systems operate within specified power ratings.

Frequency Test 

Frequency tests measure the number of cycles per unit time in an alternating current waveform. This is important for analyzing signals, tuning circuits, and ensuring proper operation in applications such as telecommunications and power systems.

Phase Test 

Phase tests determine the relative timing of two waveforms in an AC circuit. It helps assess phase relationships, power factor correction, and phase synchronization. Phase tests can identify phase imbalances, verify the alignment of multi-phase systems, and detect issues such as incorrect wiring or component faults.

Harmonic Test 

Harmonic tests measure the presence and amplitude of harmonic frequencies in an electrical signal. Harmonic distortion can affect the performance of electrical systems and damage electrical equipment. This test ensuring signal quality and compliance with standards within manufacturing, data centers, and utilities, where maintaining power quality and system reliability is critical.

Insulation Resistance Test 

Electrical insulation resistance tests measure the resistance of insulation materials used in electrical components and systems. It helps assess the integrity of insulation and detects any insulation breakdown or degradation before there is current leakage and electrical faults. Utilities, grid storage, telecommunications and manufacturing companies use this test to help ensure continuous operations and safety compliance.

Dielectric Strength Test 

Dielectric strength tests evaluate the ability of an insulating material to withstand electric stress without breakdown. This is important for assessing the safety and reliability of electrical insulation used in power generation, aerospace, automotive, and manufacturing.
