Test & Inspections

Regular testing & inspections of existing electrical installations are paramount in proving their safety and integrity. No electrical system can be considered ‘Safe’ for use until it has been inspected, tested and certified..

Generally existing electrical installations deteriorate over time and use and should be tested on a scheduled basis, to ensure compliance with Spanish electrical wiring & Installation regulations ( Reglamento Electrotécnico para Baja Tensión ) REBT 842/2002.

It is important for the person responsible for the maintenance of the electrical installation to be sure that the safety of it’s users are not put at any risk and that the installation continues to be in a safe and serviceable condition.

After an initial Visual inspection, several electronic tests are carried out by injected test voltages and current through the system to determine the integrity and functionality of cables, accessories and usability of the installation.

 

What is a Periodic Inspection?

The Periodic Inspection Report is the formal method of recording the findings of the test and inspection and to ascertain the condition of an existing electrical installations, to identify (in order of priority) any deficiencies against safety and REBT 842/2002 ( the most recent version of which came into force on the 18th September 2003 ).

Describing the overall condition of the installation as being either “Satisfactory” or “Unsatisfactory”. If the installation is found to be in a satisfactory condition then no immediate remedial action is needed, but should the installation be found to be in an unsatisfactory condition then remedial action will be required to bring the installation into a safe and serviceable condition and this should be done without delay. All observations and recommendations that are made during the test and inspection are recorded.

Keeping records of the results of inspection and testing can be useful, and can prove Important for future tests to compare any deterioration that may or may not arise.

Comprobaciones e Inspecciones

Inspecciones y comprobaciones periódicas de las instalaciones eléctricas son fundamentales para demostrar su seguridad e integridad. Los Sistemas eléctricos no pueden ser considerados “seguros” para su uso hasta que hayan sido inspeccionados, probados y certificados.

Generalmente las instalaciones eléctricas existentes se deterioran con el tiempo y el uso y deben ser comprobados de forma planificada para garantizar el cumplimiento del Reglamento Electrotécnico para Baja Tensión (REBT 842/2002).

Es importante que la persona responsable del mantenimiento de la instalación eléctrica se asegure de que los usuarios no estén expuestos a ningún riesgo y que la instalación sigua siendo segura y que esté en buenas condiciones.

Tras una primera inspección visual, varias pruebas electrónicas son llevadas a cabo por medio de tensiones de ensayo para determinar la integridad y funcionalidad de los cables, accesorios y la utilización de la instalación.

 

¿Qué es una inspección periódica?

El informe de inspección periódica es la forma de registro formal de los resultados de la prueba, la inspección y comprobación del estado de las instalaciones eléctricas existentes, para identificar (en orden de prioridad) las deficiencias de seguridad y contra el Reglamento ( que entró en vigor el 18 de septiembre de 2003).

La condición general de la instalación podrá ser determinada como “Satisfactoria” o “Insatisfactoria”. Si es considerada como Insatisfactoria es necesaria la adopción de medidas correctivas para recuperar los niveles de seguridad del usuario.
