On-site Analysis / Consultation

Equitech offers onsite grounding and power analysis by our technicians to determine the optimal solution for you. Our techs will:

Fully investigate and evaluate service entrance, to include:

  • Documentation of phase, amperage and voltage available at the equipment
  • Document approximate age of the equipment
  • Measure L-N-L phase legs and look for discrepancies of greater than 2volts
  • Evaluate waveform shape with Fluke 43B Power Quality Analyzer
  • Photos of service panel and circuit legend
  • Evaluate breakers and general condition of equipment including whole premise surge suppression
  • Indicate any NEC violations

Fully investigate and evaluate any sub-panels, to include:

  • Documentation of phase, amperage and voltage available at the equipment
  • Document approximate age of the equipment
  • Measure L-N-L phase legs and look for discrepancies of greater than 2volts
  • Evaluate waveform shape with Fluke 43B Power Quality Analyzer
  • Photos of service panel and circuit legend
  • Evaluate breakers and general condition of equipment including whole premise surge-suppression
  • Indicate any NEC violations

Analyze premises grounding system: 

  • Measure and document resistance to Earth of grounding system with Megger DET14C
  • Document premises grounding system
  • Evaluate general condition of ground rods, bonding clamps, ground wires if present
  • Locate and Evaluate Gas-Water pipe Bonds
  • Measure Amperage on Ground Wire (if amperage present indicative of wiring issues on premises)
  • Evaluate and document size and number of grounding electrodes and bonding jumpers
  • Electro Magnetic Field Evaluation
  • Sweep property with Bell Labs EMF meter
  • Document areas of high EMF (indicative of wiring errors on property)
  • Note any nearby power lines or other sources of high EMF
  • Evaluate circuits in audio production areas
  • Evaluate number of audio only critical circuits, if any 
  • Evaluate noise inducing equipment that may be on the same circuit or phase leg as sensitive audio equipment
  • Identify possible locations for new audio specific circuits
  • Indicate any NEC violations

You will receive a full summary report with recommended repairs including any noted NEC violations. We will also recommend upgrades to improve performance of your electrical distribution system for audio/ video specific applications utilizing dedicated circuits, enhanced grounding means and balanced power isolation transformers.
