high voltage insulation testing

Validate Potential Changes with High Voltage Insulation Testing

High voltage insulation testing is important when making changes to high voltage coil designs. Companies need to confirm that the performance of the new design will meet or exceed the current specs. No coil manufacturer will make the decision to alter the insulation systems involved in coil construction lightly. Perhaps a coil needs to be...

battery insulation sleeving

Battery Insulation Sleeving Solutions for Outside the Cell Protection

Backed by federal directives and increasing consumer interest, Electric Vehicle (EV) sales are expected to rise dramatically over the next decade. But EVs need vast quantities of energy in order to function. This energy is stored in high-voltage batteries that must have perfect electrical insulation to function correctly and as such, battery insulation sleeving is...
