What field testing does Hubbell Power Systems recommend for distribution arresters?

Hubbell arresters do not require field testing. Properly designed, assembled, selected and applied arresters from reputable manufacturers should resist degradation. If desired, the most commonly performed field test of arrester health is infrared analysis. It is used to determine if the arrester shows a long-term trend of increasing heat buildup, which may indicate replacement is needed.
