Chopping Gaps for Impulse Voltage Generators

by Haefely Hipotronics 

Catalog ID: Chopping Gaps for Impulse Voltage Generators

HAEFELY HIPOTRONICS line of chopping or sphere gaps can be used for either AC or DC voltage calibration  (according to IEC 60052) or as a load capacitor and to provide a chopped lightning impulse. Chopping gaps are an important part of a complete impulse test system when a chopped impulse is required. HAEFELY HIPOTRONICS offers two lines of chopping gaps, the MAFS series which is an automated  multiple chopping gap and the KFS series which is a horizontal and vertical sphere gap. Integrated with HAEFELY HIPOTRONICS control units GC 223 and GC 257 the sphere distances can be automatically adjusted on the vertical versions. This saves time in setup and also helps to provide a reproducible chopping time.
