Insulation Resistance (IR) Image

Term:

Insulation Resistance (IR)

Definition:

The amount of resistance provided by the dielectric layer is stated as the insulation resistance. It is determined by measuring the amount of current after applying a constant DC voltage.

Insulation resistance is significant because it describes the strength of the dielectric layer.
Typically film and ceramic dielectrics will specify insulation resistance
