Our diverse Electrical Laboratory capabilities include measurements from DC to 10 GHz. The equipment assigned to the laboratory is among the most accurate available for the specific measurements of interest. We believe it is the most comprehensive range of testing disciplines of any laboratory in our industry. A general overview of the services we provide includes, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Arc Resistance (ASTM D495)
  • Capacitance
  • Comparative Tracking Index (CTI) (ASTM D3638)
  • Conductive Anodic Filament (CAF)
  • Conductivity
  • Crosstalk
  • Current Breakdown
  • Current Carrying Capability (to 300 Amps DC @ 30 Volts)
  • Delay
  • Dielectric Constant (Permittivity)/Dissipation Factor (Loss Tangent), 60 Hz to 1 MHz (ASTM D150), 1 GHz, 2.5 GHz, 5 GHz, and 10 GHz
  • Dielectric Strength (ASTM D149, up to 100 kV AC, rms)
  • Dielectric Withstanding Voltage (DWV)
  • Impedance and Time
  • Delay of Lines by TDR (Single-Ended and Differential)
  • Interconnection Resistance
  • Insulation Resistance
  • Leakage Current
  • Low Level DC Resistance
  • Measurements (4 Wire Kelvin Technique)
  • Power
  • Q (Resonance)
  • Surface Insulation Resistance (SIR)
  • Surface Resistivity (ASTM D257)
  • Velocity of Propagation
  • Volume Resistivity (ASTM D257)
