Florida and Oregon-based No-Outage Electrical Testing Inc. has joined EA Technology Group, to roll out the latest techniques for non-invasive assessment of the condition of medium-voltage equipment across the United States.
Headquartered in Capenhurst, UK, EA Technology has offices in Australia, UAE and China, together with 36 international distributors. Global sales of the group’s UltraTEV products for measuring partial discharge activity in MV equipment have increased more than 1300% in the last three years.
The company has been a successful distributor for EA Technology and has used its products in the field for the last two years. It will continue to trade as No-Outage Electrical Testing in the immediate future, before transitioning into EA Technology USA.
EA Technology has more than 40 years experience working with MV assets, and its scientists were the first to recognize the importance of Transient Earth Voltage (TEV) effects, in the 1970s, according to the company.
First appearing in 2003, EA Technology’s UltraTEV instruments represent a step change in PD measurement, because they measure effects deep in the insulation, as well as surface emissions. The range has since grown from hand-held ‘first pass’ PD detectors, to instruments for investigating PD activity in detail, up to fully automatic web-enabled systems for detecting, locating, measuring, analyzing and reporting PD activity in hundreds of pieces of MV equipment simultaneously, 24/7.
