Verify electrical and environmental reliability

For manufacturers of high voltage electrical switchgear and related equipment, Elite offers a unique combination of expertise and test facilities.  This means having electrical testing, EMC testing, and environmental testing all under one roof. It also means Elite has built the capability to test higher surge voltages and currents, reach higher radiated immunity levels, and has the vibration equipment to test very large equipment as is required in this industry.    

Following are a selection of the typically electric power industry tests that are conducted at Elite. For other tests and capabilities, contact an Elite sales engineer.
