This Electrical Troubleshooting and Testing training course will help to maximize industrial productivity and help to solve problems faster and reduce electrical equipment downtime. Establishing preventative maintenance programs is becoming critical to maintaining the uptime of electrical equipment and can significantly reduce both planned and unplanned downtime. Unplanned downtime costs are difficult to calculate, but often significant. For some industries, it can represent 1 to 3 per cent of revenue (potentially 30 per cent to – 40 per cent of profits) annually.
The course will review equipment necessary to perform a Site Survey, such as industry oscilloscopes and Multimeters, Power
Quality Analyzers, Current Clamp meters, and Mini Infrared Thermometers. Basic power quality measurements to production
equipment maintenance procedures allows to determine unexpected failures on both production equipment and power system.
Insurance claims data in the NFPA 70B maintenance standard show that roughly half of the cost associated with electrical failures
could be prevented by regular maintenance. To determine the cost of a failure, it helps to consider three key categories: Loss
of income due to downtime, cost of labor to troubleshoot, repair and restart and cost of damage equipment.
