Dielectric Constant Testing

Applied Technical Services provides Dielectric Constant testing. Dielectric Constant testing indicates how well an insulator stores electrical energy. During this procedure, a sample is put in between two metallic plates and the capacitance is evaluated and recorded. Following this, another test is run without the specimen, i.e. air between the two plates. The ratio of the values collected from both runs is the dielectric constant (also known as permittivity). It is important to get this procedure performed on your materials especially when it is to be used in electric applications that requires a higher capacitance. In such applications a higher dielectric constant will be needed. We test according to ASTM D150 and IEC 60250.

ATS Electrical Testing Laboratory

Our Electrical Testing Lab offers a wide variety of electrical and electronic product testing. We often inspect common products including insulators, batteries, wires, cables, lights, connectors, circuit breakers, and other electronic components. We can determine the causes of electrical failures and verify performance of various products.
