What is Preventive Maintenance?

In this data record you have to record the data of the resistance shown in by machines/ instruments. If the value of the insulation resistance is consistent shows that the device is still in good shape. But if there is any kind of decrease in insulation resistance then it is a bad news for the equipment. This indicates that you might run into trouble in the near future.
