Insulation Resistance

Testing of all electrical equipment before any high voltage testing is commenced. The test voltage will depend on the equipment to be tested. If a polarisation index is required the duration of the test will be over in a ten minute period. The polarisation index is the ratio of the DC resistances after one-minute and ten-minute periods have passed.
