Industrial Electrician Offers AC Hi-Potential Testing
Before anyone turns the power on, you’ve got to know if there’s any existing equipment damage or short circuits that will “go boom!” So when working with a customer’s medium voltage distribution system, our AC Hi-Potential Testing equipment can detect short circuits and ground faults to avoid further damaging equipment or subjecting electricians to the dangers of an arc flash – and the likely resulting explosion.

 

The capability to test the integrity of transformers, switches and cables at a voltage equal to or greater than the operating voltage is extremely critical in order to maximize safety before power is applied from the electric distribution system. Arc flash accidents occurs every year in the U.S., and many industrial electricians have been severely burned or killed as a result of the ensuing flash and/or blast. As Wichita’s Safest Electricians, we’re proud to offer this important electrical testing equipment to our industrial electrical customers in Wichita, the surrounding counties, the state of Kansas, and even customers who ask us to travel across the continent.
