PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

VLF/DC Hipots

From the outset, HV Diagnostics was a pioneer in the development a small, portable, single piece oil free VLF (Very Low Frequency) Hipot test instrument that would be reliable, user friendly and more technically advanced than anything available in the industry. The model HVA30 was developed more than 10 years ago, quickly becoming a game changer in the industry making it the most popular VLF/DC unit on the market.

From those humble beginnings, the HVA Series of combo VLF / DC high voltage test instruments have grown and strengthened, both in voltage and power capabilities, while still maintaining the same unique quality and performance. From the smallest, but still incredibly capable VLF unit on market – the HVA28 – to one of the largest – the HVA200, we now offer a full spectrum of VLF / DC units covering a wide range of power and voltage requirements.

These instruments not only test MV (Medium Voltage) and Transmission class cables, they can also test vacuum bottles, cable jackets / sheaths, motors, generators, transformers etc. A very accurate true RMS measurement system measures and records load capacitance, insulation resistance (Megohmmeter), current, frequency, voltage, breakdown voltage and test duration. The HVA series of VLF instruments form the building blocks for the available Tan Delta and Partial Discharge instruments.

The well-known HVA Control Center Software comes free of charge with all HVA test instruments. Firmware updates are also performed free of charge for the life of the instrument and all new instruments are delivered with a NIST traceable calibration certificate.

 

HV Diagnostics HVA34 VLF/DC Test Unit

This model replaces the ground breaking and very popular model HVA30. The HVA30 was upgraded to the HVA34 to accommodate the new testing requirements for 25kV rated cables as per the latest revision of IEEE400.2 testing standard. Arguably the top selling VLF/DC instrument on the market, this instrument has become the standard for testing 25kV rated cables and below. The upgraded model includes an even more powerful output while keeping the same overall weight, physical dimensions, and user interface. A single piece design, weighting only 44 lbs / 19.5kgs, it is capable of testing up to 120, 000ft / 37km of cable. This is not just a VLF hipot, it also includes a DC hipot, Fault conditioning, Sheath testing, and Vacuum Bottle testing modes all housed in single piece, powerful test instrument.
