Technology: Detects defects in energized high voltage insulators by measuring distortion in the electric field surrounding the insulator. The high sensitivity of the testers provides and records instantaneous safety status and early detection of faults/defects before insulator integrity is compromised to prevent power outages, fires and dangerous conditions.


Tests Insulators / Bushings In Service

Eliminate High Voltage Insulator Failures
Prevent Power Outages and Equipment Damage
