Technicians will need to conduct a vacuum interrupter integrity test if they want to maintain the quality and functionality of their equipment. Vacuum interrupter testers allow for in-depth analysis that is vital to maintaining these instruments.
What Is A Vacuum Interrupter?
A vacuum interrupter (VI) is a device normally used in a circuit breaker to switch the current. The instrument acts as a switch and works with electrical contacts. Vacuum interrupters are used in a variety of industries, including those related to power generation, power-distribution, and more.
What Is A Vacuum Interrupter Tester?
A vacuum interrupter tester allows operators to test various aspects of the device under test (DuT). Contact resistance, the leak-rate, and overall vacuum interrupter integrity are all aspects that can be tested with a vacuum interrupter tester.
