Category: "T": Test Equipment & Services

Electrical testing is a crucial part of installing electrical systems in a certain residence or company.  It caters to the inspection and testing of the strength of these electrical systems.  Other aspects of the process that can be inspected or tested are damage, wear and tear, corrosion, ageing, environmental influences and excessive electrical loading.

Most companies offering electrical testing services include a wide array of types where the process is involved.  From periodic inspection and testing, electrical installation testing and emergency installation testing to fire alarm testing, entertainment license testing, petroleum license electrical testing and portable appliance testing, companies are willing to offer services.  Learn about these services in the succeeding paragraphs.

Periodic inspection and testing

This is a type of service that inspects on the actual condition of the electrical installation to check whether it abides with the rules set by the industry.  In this process, the installation is checked as to whether there are existing deteriorations that may lead to further danger.  When the system is said to be at fault it will be repaired accordingly.

Alongside electrical installation testing, cost effective solutions may also be recommended.  Documentation may be necessary like periodic inspection certificates, detailed circuit assessment sheets, survey report, for specific and general site faults, CAD electrical distribution drawings and dangerous conditions report forms.

Electrical lighting and fire alarm testing

These are two of the most important electrical testing services rendered by companies.  For emergency lighting testing, some services are included in the assessment.  The list includes battery discharge test, lumen level output assessment and client training for interim testing.  This type of test is essential in ensuring the proper functioning and positioning of lighting systems including signage systems.

As for fire alarm testing, the fire alarm is tested as to whether it is functioning properly or not.  Fire alarms are created to provide warning to individuals and to save lives and properties as well.  Smoke and heat detectors are included during the test.  Bells, sounders, cable joints and fire panels are tested too.
Other tests for the home

Entertainment systems as well as portable appliances also form part of electrical testing.  Entertainment systems may be tested not only in the home but in venues where entertainment performances are made.  This involves inspection of lighting and electrical wiring systems as well as entertainment electricity supply.  For portable appliance testing, downloadable software is used.  Any piece of equipment with sockets or plugs to be connected to an electrical power supply should be tested.
