Insulation Resistance (IR) test course for Power cables

Requirements

  • No special requirements or preparations are needed.

Insulation resistance testing should begin at the time of installation and continue throughout the lifetime of the equipment.

Through insulation resistance testing and data collection, you may be able to predict possible system failures and take earlier action to prevent them.

This course will provide you the required knowledge and practical procedures to implement different types of IR test especially for power cables along with the analysis of test results.

Moreover, it answers some of the most common concerns and questions that most test engineers ask about.
