At North Central Electric, we offer our customers in Horsham a wide range of field testing services, (ANSI/IEEE, NETA Standards) including acceptance testing and commissioning, for both new and existing substations. During these services, our trained and certified technicians will perform a thorough examination of your electrical equipment. Acceptance testing and commissioning can help extend the life of your current electrical equipment and ensure new equipment is installed and functioning properly. 

What Is Acceptance Testing?

Acceptance testing is the process of ensuring all electrical apparatus meets industry and manufacturer standards. Newly installed electrical equipment and systems require this type of testing after installation to ensure everything is functioning properly and wired correctly. At North Central Electric, our certified technicians will perform visual and manual inspections to safeguard your electrical equipment and verify that it is in compliance with industry specifications and standards. 

According to electrical equipment manufacturers, over 30% of all newly installed electrical equipment fails to operate properly. This is due to improper installation and inaccurate testing. Not only will acceptance testing save you time and money in the long run, but it can also protect the validity of your manufacturer’s warranty. Don’t delay, contact the team at NCE today to identify and expose potential issues before they become future problems. 

What Is Electrical Commissioning?

Electrical commissioning refers to the process of bringing newly installed or retrofitted electrical equipment into operation and ensures everything is in proper working order. This systematic process involves verifying and documenting that all systems, parts, and components are planned, designed, installed, tested, operated, and maintained to meet the necessary industry and manufacturer requirements. Commissioning electrical equipment is essential in keeping everything running smoothly and keeping everyone safe.
