A “loose neutral” in a residential location can cause equipment damage and even a house fire.
An open neutral may start as a high resistance connection that shows subtle signs in waveform capture data before becoming more obvious as classic opposing voltage swells and sags in the stripchart.
Recognizing the pattern of a loose neutral in the waveform data allows for recognition of a possible problem before it becomes severe.
Here, the signs of a high resistance or open neutral connection are shown as they appear in waveform capture data.
