High voltage dielectric testing of aerial lifts is a critical application because the lift insulates workers from the ground while they are working on or near high voltage cables and apparatus. This testing must be performed correctly by trained personnel using proper equipment and accepted methods like those described in the ANSI 92.2 standard.
AC may be used for field maintenance testing of fiberglass booms, liners, or buckets. AC is required for factory certification or re-certification after a rebuild. AC voltage stress the truck and the worker are subjected to.
ETS, Inc. offers AC high pot testing for aerial lift testing per the ANSI 92.2 standard. The field portable ALT series tester offers voltages up to 120 kV. In addition to testing of Aerial Lifts, ETS inspectors can make onsite repairs as necessary to ensure clients’ equipment meet all safety regulations.
