Resistivity is a fundamental electrical parameter that determines the electrical conductivity of the ground as a conductor. Measuring the resistivity of the ground is necessary to calculate the grounding design of an electrical installation. Our tests are most needed when determining the design of the grounding system for new installations (greenfield applications) to meet the ground resistivity requirements for customer projects.
Specialists will help to find a place with the lowest possible resistance, perform various manipulations with instruments, and, after comparing the data obtained with the established requirements, can carry out repair work partial or overhaul. The team knows the technical part, the rules of the organization of electrical installations and regulations, as well as extensive diagnostic experience to issue an objective conclusion even after a visual inspection.
To ensure an effective grounding system, our team considers all circumstances and problems (location, weather, type of construction, function, etc.). This allows us to design a system that will withstand the most adverse conditions. When you choose us as your contractor, you get a qualified crew with all the necessary high-tech equipment at their disposal.
Our resistivity tests are conducted at multiple locations using a sophisticated error-checking process that identifies and reduces errors caused by nearby underground metal structures or underground noise. Technicians have years of experience performing soil resistivity measurements throughout the United States.
Ground resistivity measurements are necessary to properly design a grounding system capable of properly dissipating electrical charges from electrical equipment. We can help you improve safety and reduce the cost of your project by ensuring that the proposed design works as planned.
