    Insulation resistance with PI on a motor

    So only 15 months doing testing. The company i work for is sending me out to a dairy to test some motors, i have never done this and would like the best method to do this test.
    Do i change the wires in the pecker head or do i leave them as is? Please help
    I am being sent with a lead tech but i want to look intelligent when we do this work. Never tested any motors befor only made them up.

    Here is your complete guide to insulation resistance testing including PI. ("A Stitch In Time" by Megger).

    No wiring changes should be necessary unless there is monitoring circuits.
