Ultra High Voltage DC

By Hipotronics 

Catalog ID: UHVDC

By Hipotronics
Catalog ID:  UHVDC
HIPOTRONICS standard line of UHVDC Test Systems are designed to perform ultra high voltage DC insulation tests on electrical apparatus, bushings, transformers & cable in accordance with IEC 61378, IEC 62199, CIGRE 219 & 189, and other national test standards.The system is built from standard 400 or 600kV DC HV modules and is available with standard outputs from 400-1800kVDC. With our industry leading compact design, we are able to reduce the floor space required in the test area, and enhance mobility while still achieving the required voltage.
  • Low ripple less than 3% displayed in real time
  • Quick Polarity reversal meets latest test standards
  • Remote Control of system possible
  • Mobile system design for use in the field
  • Automatic data acquisition allows for quick and easy generation of test reports
  • Rated current available to rated voltage
  • Simple to use with quick setup time and intuitive control panel allows for easy testing
  • Minimal Footprint allows for testing of equipment in small lab spaces
  • Expandable standard modules allow for easy future expansion of the system
  • User safety - visible grounding system with external interlocks available
  • Partial Discharge Testing - low PD levels available up to full output voltage (PD level needs to be specified when ordering and may require additional components)
