VLF-60

PORTABLE HIGH-VOLTAGE VLF TEST SYSTEM

The system is designed for VLF (0.1 Hz) withstand testing of cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) insulated cables.

  • VLF testing of cables with polymeric insulation (incl. XLPE cables).
  • Hipot testing of solid dielectrics with DC voltage of positive or negative polarity.
  • Cable faults conditioning by initial insulation burning.
  • Vacuum bottle test.
  • Cable sheath testing and fault pinpointing.

VERSATILITY

Vlf 60

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.

MANUAL AND AUTOMATIC OPERATING MODES

Vlf 60 display

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.

TESTING HIGH-CAPACITANCE OBJECTS

Vlf 60 display2

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.

10,000 TEST REPORTS STORAGE

Vlf 60 usb

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.

TOUCH CONTROL
