Airports are busy places with lots of hazards. Keeping people safe is always a priority but the logistics of turning around airplanes for the next flight can be challenging and complex.
The quality of insulation resistance is known to degrade with time due to exposure to their environmental conditions. Temperature, humidity, moisture, and dust particles negatively impact these cables inducing electrical and mechanical stress. For any developing or existing site, Meg Tests are conducted on power cables at constant and regular intervals to check the health of their electrical systems.
