Earth Tester Market 2022 | COVID – 19 Outbreak, Size, Leading Players and Forecast to 2024

  • Earth tester is an instrument which is used for measuring resistance of the earth. The power system equipment are connected to the earth through earth electrodes. The resistance of the earth is low and the fault current passes to the earth through an electrode. This protects the system from damage.
  • The earth electrodes help to control the high potential of the equipment which is caused by voltage spikes or lightning surge. The neutral connection of the three phase circuit is also connected to earth electrodes for protection.
  • The two main parts of an earth tester are rotational current reverser and rectifier. These two parts are mounted on the shaft of a DC generator. The earth tester only works on DC due to presence of the rectifier. An earth tester also consists of two pressure and current coils and each coil has two terminals.

Wide Range of Applications Driving Market Growth

  • An earth tester enables the measurement of ground electrode resistance or soil resistance. It is necessary to ensure low resistance ground connection for the protection and performance of the electrical system. This prevents injury due to faulty connections.
  • Increasing demand for earth testers is seen in industrial electrical equipment, oil & gas, and industrial applications. In addition, earth testers are used in street lighting, street cabinets, telephone pedestals, and cell towers.
  • Other factors which propel the earth tester market include increasing urbanization and increasing electricity requirement in developing economies. However, unavailability of skilled workforce is expected to hamper the growth of the earth tester market.
