What Is NETA Acceptance Testing?
NETA acceptance testing aims to ensure that new or retrofitted electrical equipment and systems function, perform within industry and manufacturer standards, and have a proper installation. The 2017 NETA ATS specifies tests that evaluate equipment and systems for their suitability for initial start-up.
Our technicians provide NETA acceptance testing as part of the construction industry's total building commissioning process. By verifying your system's and equipment's integrity for use, our team can help you promote safe electrical operation.
The Importance of Receiving NETA Testing From a Certified Professional
The NETA ATS includes a comprehensive list of tests to perform on new or retrofitted electrical equipment and systems — completing these tests requires expert interpretation. A technician who oversees NETA testing must understand the extent of testing necessary to get the most useful results. Depending on the scope of the equipment or system, the technician may need to perform the optional tests in the manual or decrease the number of standard tests
Our NETA testing professionals have experience with acceptance testing for a wide range of systems. As a result, they can make the appropriate judgments for performing extensive testing without redundancy.
