Prior To installation, always test the electrical outlet in accordance with AN SI/ESD S6.1 Grounding Standard to ensure:
- The ground conductor is present
- There are no electrical shorts to the ground conductor
- The electrical outlet is properly wired
- Ground conductor impedance to the distribution panel is less than 1 ohm
This circuit test is easily performed ed with a PGT-161 SureTest Circuit Analyzer available from Prostat and other sources.
Use the Prostat Qube for Resistance to Ground (RTG)M easurem ents as required by Industry Standards such as ANSI/ESD S20.20 and IEC61340-5-1 S
