Voltage Drop Testing

fatigue testing

ATS usually performs Voltage Drop Testing to test loads and locate potential circuit problems. Voltage drops within a circuit can cause a loss of electrical energy, resulting in undesired heat. Excessive voltage loss can lead to unreliable product performance, equipment damage and, in extreme circumstances, fires.

If you have abnormal voltage drops, you may experience the following symptoms:

  • Electrical Parts Not Operating
  • Slow-Responding Electrical Devices
  • Erratic Electrical Responses
  • Excessive Radio Interference
  • Damaged Transmission Cables
  • Damaged Throttle Cables
  • Damaged Drivetrain
  • Poor Engine Performance
  • Poor Transmission Performance
  • No Starts
  • Hard Starts
  • High Computer Voltages

Causes of Voltage Drops:

  • Corrosion
  • Diameter or Gauge of Wire
  • Distance Between Source and Load
  • Faulty Wiring
  • Faulty Receptacles and Switches
  • Current Surges
