As environmental awareness drives technology to new heights, the electricity industry is seeing its fair share of the disruption. Electric Vehicles are just one of the rising technologies that we need to adopt, yet it is one of the most pressing. For the purposes of this blog, when we say EV we mean a fully electric vehicle, not a hybrid of any sort.
Over the next few months we'll look at the different aspects of EVs, starting with the first one most of us will come across: Charging.
TL;DR: Equipment, legislation, knowledge, technology: these cornerstones to your income must be up-to-date and future ready. Are they? How much time do you spend on keeping up to date with current industry trends? Find out how to keep updated, what to ignore and when to make changes to your business based on what you learn.
While most of us (the ones who met their targets) will be taking a week or so to unwind and mentally prep for the new year. Those of us who didn’t get into Santas good books have been put on the skeleton shifts, to make sure the building doesn’t burn down and to keep the servicing up.
Megger has you covered!
Good news for the environment, but it does create challenges for garages and service agents. Now having to deal with electrical systems that work at much higher voltages than those found on traditional vehicles. One important consequence is that, in order to ensure safety and reliability, insulation testing will be a prime requirement.
Meggers new MIT400/2 series of Insulation resistance testers are the perfect solution:
- MIT400/2 – 1000V Insulation test, CATIV Safety
- MIT410/2 – As above but including PI/DAR/Timed testing
- MIT420/2 – As above but including results storage
- MIT430/2 – As above but including Bluetooth results download
For over 80 years Megger instruments have been sold in New Zealand and led the industry for all it’s testing and application needs. AVO New Zealand is proud to continue this tradition and is supporting the next generation of electrical apprentices.
