Voltage surge simulation
VSS 500N15.1 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 15kV, divided into two voltage ranges (up to 6.6kV and up to 15kV).
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.

BenefitsVSS 500N15.1 - Voltage surge generator with constant pulse energy
EMTEST VSS 500N15.1 Surge tester generates high voltage transients as per IEC 61180-1 (specification of the waveshape) IEC 60255-27 to specifically perform transient overvoltage tests on "Protection Relays". According to this standard, the pulse energy is to be kept constantly at 0.5J at each test level hence a variety of pulseforming networks is implemented in order to obey this specification.
The output of the VSS 500N15.1 is devided into two ranges; the lower range covers the test up to 6.6kV while the higher range supports testing between 6kV and 15kV.
Dealing with considerable high voltage and energy safety features such as interlock and warning lamp control self-evidently considered.
Peak voltage measurement as well as the detection of spark-overs are implemented to accomplish the documentation of the performed tests.
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. Fail inputs are offered as standard for DUT monitoring purposes.
