Voltage surge simulation
The surge simulator type VSS 500N6 generates high voltage transients as required by IEC 60255-27 with a source impedance of 500ohm for transient overvoltage tests on "Protection Relays". The output voltage ranges up to 6.6kV, covering for tests levels 1 to 5.
The no-load waveshape corresponds to IEC-61180-1. For this kind of testing the IEC 60255-27 standard requires a fixed energy of 0.5J at each test level.
Surge pulse 1.2/50us up to 6.6kV
5 different test levels
Source impedance 500ohm
Constant Energy of 0.5J at each test level
Peak voltage/current measurement
Warning lamp control
USB and GPIB interface
BenefitsVSS 500N6 - Voltage surge generator with constant pulse energy
EMTEST VSS 500N6 is designed as per IEC 60255-27 meeting the requirement to maintain a constant pulse energy at different test levels as specified by the standard. Such tests are specified for transient overvoltage tests on protection relays. The test generator itself follows the specifications as per IEC 61180-1 and covers the predefined voltage levels corresponding to the most used test voltages used for relay testing.
Fail inputs are offered as standard for DUT monitoring purposes. Peak values of voltage and current are shown in the display and these values are transferred to the software for reporting.
To comply with safety regulations the VSS 500N6 is equipped with a contact to control warning lamps and with a safety interlock.
Pre-programmed Standard Test routines allow highest user convenience. Still the VSS 500N6 offers the Quick Start test routine where parameters can be changed on-line during the test.
