Heat Cycle Test Set

by Hipotronics 

Catalog ID: Heat Cycle Test Set

The HIPOTRONICS series of High Current Heat Cycle Test Systems are designed to raise and control the temperature of a conductor or other low impedance electrical loop to simulate the current loading conditions found in electrical circuits.This heating is achieved by utilizing the test loop as the secondary winding of a current transformer for inductive heating. Measurement of the loop temperature is made by direct contact of a K-type thermocouple probe with the conductor of the test loop.Our systems are offered as low voltage test systems or high voltage test systems. The low voltage test system utilizes one loop of the conductor passing through the desired number of CT carts to reach the necessary power level. For the high voltage test   systems we again utilize the low voltage loop, but add a second loop through coupling carts which both the low and high voltage loops pass while isolating the low voltage and high voltage portions of the system.Once the high voltage loop is passed through the coupling carts the desired voltage is applied to the test loop with an AC high pot, while the desired current is generated from the Load Cycle Test Set. Additionally Impulse tests can be performed on the high voltage side of the test set up.
