Power Diagnostix offers easy to use instruments for the daily acceptance tests and quality control on cables according to the IEC 60270 or other relevant testing standards.

Factory PD Tests on Power Cables

All cables produced in a cable factory need to be tested according to the relevant quality assurance standards. During the high voltage tests a simultaneous PD measurement is recommended and applicable. Depending on the highest voltage levels under test a suitable coupling capacitor can be used to pick up the PD signal from the cable termination.
