Educational Session: Ultrasound For Electrical
by Jim Hall, Executive Director of The Ultrasound Institute
Todays ultrasound instrument has given the end-user the abilities to identify electrical anomalies such as arcing, tracking and corona discharge.
The instruments are more engaged in the inspection. Through the use of waveform analysis (fft/time wave) electrical anomalies can not only be heard but defined before other technologies such as infrared or corona cameras.
