earth loop impedance testing in Wellington

The importance of earth loop impedance testing in Wellington

Electrical testing and tagging services are crucial to workplace safety and have proved to be a life-saving measure. One of the most important safety procedures is earth loop impedance testing.

Ensuring that your workplace is safe and all safety measures are properly in place is not always easy. There are many hazards that can be overlooked or not properly dealt with. Issues with electrical circuits is one of those. The dangers of electrical faults can never be overestimated. The risks posed by faulty electrical equipment and wiring are enormous and can even be fatal.

The last thing you want is to be worried that you haven’t made your workplace as safe as possible.

Why earth loop impedance matters

Not everyone knows how important something like earth loop impedance testing in Wellington is.

The reason for such testing is that electricity always takes the easiest path to the ground. Buildings in Wellington and throughout most of NZ that have electrical wiring systems will have a connection to the ground. This grounding system creates what’s known as an earth return circuit.

When there is a short circuit, the grounding wire allows the electrical current to pass through.

Having an earth loop impedance test done ensures that whenever there is a short circuit or fault, the fault current is powerful enough to trigger the circuit protection.

Without earth loop impedance testing, the fault current can remain undetected and cause electrical circuits to overheat and catch fire.

That makes it clear just why earth loop impedance testing is so crucial.
