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 0.5 J at the 1000 V and 5000 V test levels.

VSS 500N6 – Voltage surge generator with constant pulse energy

The 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.

Easy to operate

Front panel menu and function keys enable the user to program his test routines quickly and accurately. The cursor allows fast control of all test parameters of the programmed routine, thus test procedures are simplified and confidence is generated that every step is carried out correctly.

iec.control Software for control and documentation

Outstanding user convenience, clearly structured windows and operation features, EM TEST’s comprehensive standards library along with the flexibility to easily generate user specific test sequences are the main features of iec.control software. The software will be automatically configured in accordance with the connected EM TEST generators. Extensive reporting capabilities help the user to create test reports that meet international requirements.
The iec.control is supported by Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 10. Remote control is achieved either via Ethernet or optical interface with USB connector at the PC side.
The iec.control supports various interfaces for the communication to external measuring devices.
