Portable system VLF-60 is used for:

  • VLF (0.1 Hz) withstand testing of cables with polymeric (PE, XLPE, TRXLPE, EPR, etc.) insulation;
  • Hipot testing of various solid dielectrics (generators, transformers, switchgear, etc.) with DC+ and DC- voltage;
  • Cable faults conditioning by initial insulation burning;
  • Vacuum circuit breakers testing;
  • Cable sheath testing and fault pinpointing.


Apart from very low frequency (VLF) and DC withstand testing, VLF-60 system also performs cable fault conditioning by initial burning faulty insulation, tests cable sheath and pinpoints its faults.


The system allows to carry out tests in both automatic and manual control modes.

In the manual mode the operator enters all test parameters, which makes VLF‑60 suitable for testing a wide range of electrical equipment according to various standards and regulations.

In the automatic mode minimal test settings entries are required: the operator only selects a test object type and voltage rating and the system automatically sets all the necessary test parameters according to IEEE 400.2-2013.


At the start of every test, VLF-60 measures the resistance and capacitance of an object under test. Based on the obtained results, the system evaluates its power output capability. If the system is not able to output the voltage of a required magnitude and frequency for a given load, it will automatically reduce the output frequency. Thanks to such output frequency optimisations, the VLF-60 can be used effectively for testing objects with capacitance up to 10 µF.


Non-volatile memory of the system capable of storing up to 10,000 test reports.

It is possible to search and view test reports right from the display of the system.

Test reports may be exported from the system to a USB memory stick in CSV or PDF format without using a PC.


The main user interface component is a touch-sensitive colour TFT display, which is used for navigating menus and entering data. During a test, an output voltage wave is visualised on the display in real time.


VLF-60 system is fitted with carrying handles and weighs only 64 kg, which enables operational comfort both in the lab and in the field conditions.
