RSN 2022 Exhibitor – Acutest offer the Widest Range of Rail Industry Test Equiupment

In rail-related applications, electrical testing is not only essential to prove the safety and reliability of new and modified electrical systems, it can also be a valuable tool for the prediction and prevention of costly failures. Let’s explore some of the test equipment most applicable to the rail sector.

Electrical test equipment which is of particular value in railway applications include insulation testersbattery testerslow resistance ohmmeters and time-domain reflectometers (TDRs). Such instruments are widely available and most organisations involved in railway projects are likely to have access already to some, if not all of them. However, it is worth noting that older instruments in particular may not offer the full benefits that are provided by the latest products:
