Electricity 101 (AC vs DC):  At a simple level, AC power comes from an outlet in the wall and DC power comes from stored energy in batteries.

The Voltgard Test Lab recommends testing rubber insulating PPE as close as possible to the environment that it will be used.  For certain applications, this includes DC Testing of rubber insulating gloves.  The applications include, but are not limited to:

  • Electric vehicles (EV), both fully electric and plug-in hybrid
  • Renewable power generation (wind and solar particularly)
  • Electrified mass transit and transportation

If you are not sure whether you should have AC or DC testing, contact one of our specialists at 800-548-GARD (4273).
