Electrical Discrimination surveys


Safeguarding a power supply to maintain business critical operations is essential in the event of an electrical problem. To achieve this, discrimination surveys are carried out to identify the protection measures needed in an existing electrical network.

KIPO have a wealth of experience in conducting continuous power studies and unwanted power loss surveys in order to prevent unwanted breaker tripping and repair discrimination problems within critical facilities, preventing future costly repairs and downtime.
