Keeping you up and running is our number one goal. Because downtime is never an option.

TESTING



Performing both acceptance and maintenance testing on your electrical system is crucial in making sure that your system is running at peak performance. As a NETA certified company that specializes in these procedures, when you work with Power Products & Solutions, you're guaranteed to have an electrical system that won't let you down.

Acceptance & Maintenance Testing

Power Products & Solutions is a third-party, independent, NETA certified testing company that specializes in acceptance testing and preventative maintenance of electrical systems. Performing both acceptance testing and preventative maintenance on your electrical system is crucial in making sure that your electrical system is running at peak performance.

Acceptance testing is the process of testing electrical systems to:

• Ensure proper installation and operation according to specifications of both the manufacturer and the project

• Ensure optimal and correct operation of electrical equipment

• Minimize the potential for problems that may arise during initial start-up

Electrical Acceptance Testing

Equipment that is typically tested during the acceptance testing phase of the project includes the medium- and low-voltage transformers, automatic transfer switches, grounding grid, molded case and air breakers, medium- and low-voltage cables, and more. The proper installation of these components plays a critical role in the performance of an electrical system; improper installation or an equipment design flaw can cause major problems with production output, or even an electrical fire.

Performing acceptance testing also provides important data that can be used as a benchmark for future tests executed on that same system. This data can be used for trending to determine if the equipment has developed any signs of deterioration since the last test.

Electrical Preventative Maintenance

Preventative maintenance that we perform on electrical systems is similar to acceptance testing. During preventative maintenance, we clean the equipment, perform a visual inspection, and conduct electrical testing to confirm proper functioning.

If your electrical system is new or has already been placed into service, let us provide you with the assurance that it is operating at peak performance and per manufacturer specifications. Contact us today for more information - an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!

Battery Testing

Proper battery maintenance not only prevents unexpected failures but can also extend battery service life to reduce the frequency or increase the interval between replacements required.

Our battery maintenance services validate the condition of the battery and include resistance testing on battery strings and individual cells, recording of float voltage measurements and gravity readings, and adjustment to connections and fluid levels as needed.

• Visual and Mechanical Inspection

• Low resistance testing

• Charger float and equalizing voltage testing

• Battery String testing

• UPS load bank testing

Cable Testing

The objective of any diagnostic test is to identify problems that may exist with a cable, in a non-destructive way, so that preventative measures can be taken to avoid potential failure of that cable when in service.

Some of the cable testing service Power Products & Solutions offers include:

• DC Insulation Resistance

• Very low frequency (VLF)

• Power factor / dissipation factor (tan delta)

• Partial discharge

Infrared Scanning

What is Infrared Scanning?

Thermography is the use of an infrared imaging and measurement camera to "see" and "measure" thermal energy emitted from an object. Thermal or infrared energy is light that is not visible because its wavelength is too long to be detected by the human eye; it's the part of the electromagnetic spectrum that we perceive as heat. Infrared thermography cameras produce images of invisible inrared or heat radiation and provide precise non-contact temperature measurement capabilities. Nearly everything gets hot before it fails, making infrared cameras an extremely cost-effective and valuable diagnostic tool in many diverse applications.

Infrared Scanning: Good Preventative Maintenance

A good preventative maintenance program includes a yearly infrared scan of your electrical system. When you partner with Power Products & Solutions, you can be assured that the infrared inspection is performed in a safe manner by a qualified NETA certified technician who has the experience and training to identify problems and in most cases, repair the problems before leaving the job site. We conduct the scan with our FLIR professional infrared thermography camera and provide you with a detailed report of any problems found, with recommended actions that need to be taken.

Benefits of Performing Annual Infrared Scanning on your Electrical Components

Reduces Costs: Electrical components that fail due to heat can cause other damage to panels and wiring. By performing an infrared scan on your electrical system, we can identify and fix these problems before they worsen and become more costly.

Minimizes Power Quality Problems: Our advanced diagnostic procedures identify virtually all power quality concerns before they become expensive problems.
