Fault Zone – Insulation

The Insulation fault zone refers to the condition of the insulation between the windings and ground. For electrical equipment to operate properly and safely, it is important that the flow of electricity take place along well-defined paths or circuits and that it not be leaking from one path to another. Deterioration of the insulation systems can result in an unsafe situation for personnel exposed to the leakage current.

The MCE® technology allows you to identify potential problems with the insulation by recognizing adverse trends in resistance to ground. After conducting a baseline test, all subsequent tests are compared to the initial data with significant changes in value highlighted in yellow for caution or red for alarm.
