Commercial Electrical Fault Finding & Repairs
If you’re experiencing a variety of electrical problems – anything from flickering lights to power loss – you need to book a commercial fault-finding service with our team at North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical as soon as possible. Any electrical issues you may be experiencing should never be left unchecked as they can lead to hazards, black outs and fires. Electrical faults can be caused by worn out wiring, liquids such as water in outlets or exposed wires. Whatever the reason, whenever you’re facing electrical problems, always call a professional to inspect and repair.
What Is Electrical Fault Detection?
Fault-finding or fault detection is pretty much as the name suggests. Our team is experienced in finding the root cause of any electrical faults you might be having in the office, warehouse, restaurant and more.
To find the fault, you will need basic understanding of electrical set-ups, wiring and fault identification in additional to electrical diagrams. This is why we always recommend hiring a qualified electrician such as our Master Electricians on call 24/7 at North Lakes & Surrounds Electrical.
To properly identify the fault, you’ll need the wiring diagram that maps the electrical circuit and all its components such as lights, pumps, fans, fuses, relays, circuit breakers and more. We will assess whether each of those elements on your electric circuit is functioning properly. If several circuits or elements have failed simultaneously, the issue may be attributed to the shared earth or fuse/power connection.
There are several other reasons why you might experience an electrical fault such as corroded or loose connections, a blown fuse and faulty relays or sensors which is why our electricians will inspect the state of all these components. We will use a digital volt-ohm meter (DVOM) which helps us check for the amperage, volt, resistance, persistence and examine the lights for voltage and load drop. However, we may also use a scope for conducting more complex error finding.
Believe it or not, a wiggle test is also a great way to find faults. We may simply wiggle the wiring to see if a fault occurs and then narrow it down to its origin, whether this be dirty connections, internally broken wiring, or damaged insulation.
Commercial Fault-Finding Services
In our electrical fault-finding service, we look for the various types of faults in electrical systems and repair them likewise. Some of the faults that we look for include:
Open circuit: An open circuit occurs when a connection breaks or isn’t made when it should be, resulting in a gap in the electrical circuit. Finding a fault in an open electrical circuit is often due to damaged cabling, loose terminals, tripped circuit breaker or a faulty component.
Short circuit: A short circuit occurs when the original path of current flow is altered and a shorter than normal path for current flow exists. This causes increased current to flow in the circuit and damages the electrical components. Finding a fault in a short electrical circuit is often due to damaged insulation, incorrect wiring, water damage, or a fault in a component.
Earth fault: A loose connection can cause earth fault, and when this happens, you might get a shock. This is why it is always recommended to contact a professional.
