Contact investigations

Contact faults in DC circuits can cause the affected components  (cables, plugs, etc.) or their surroundings to leave the permitted operating range (e.g. overheating) and even cause arcing, which in addition to a functional failure can cause high damage at the contact point. Depending on the degree of fault, this can lead to the development of a smoldering fire or even an open fire.

The aim of this project is therefore to detect increases in contact or contact resistance caused, for example, by aging and environmental influences as reliably as possible in a functioning, operationally safe DC system.
