EA Technology has added two accessories to its range of UltraTEV instruments and systems for detecting, locating, measuring and monitoring partial discharge (PD) activity in medium- and high-voltage assets. The PD Simulator is designed to train engineers in a safe environment on detecting, locating, measuring and interpreting PD activity using any of EA’s UltraTEV instruments and systems.
The Ultrasonic Contact Probe, meantime, is used to measure PD activity on the surface of sealed enclosures, where the use of microphones to pick up ultrasonic emissions is impractical due to a lack of air paths or vents.
