C5 Earth Testing

Earth Testing

C5 is a recognised and trusted industry leader in earthing performance testing in the electrical/water utility sector, mining sector, industrial sector, transport sector and generation sector.

Our team can conduct onsite testing to the highest quality

Our delivery of earthing testing incorporates compliance with AS 3000, AS 2067, ENA EG-1, ENA EG0, IEEE 80 and IEEE 81, tailored to the complexity of the earthing system and encompassing the following testing methods:

  • Soil resistivity
  • Off Frequency Current Injection Testing to derive earth potential rise, current distribution, system impedance, standalone impedance and transfer voltages (touch/step/hand to hand)
  • 3 or 4 pole earth resistance testing
  • 4 wire DC Continuity and visual inspection
  • Low Frequency induction
  • Detailed Inspection Test Plan
  • Corresponding SWMS and JRA
  • Analytical derivation of measured data with accompanying reporting

Our earthing testing product is used for commissioning and auditing purposes to validate the earthing design and condition of the earthing system which is imperative for the correct operation of the power system.
