When it comes to cable testing and diagnostics, Megger is an expert. The company has been the premier provider of electric test equipment and measuring instruments for electrical power applications for more than 100 years — that’s a century of experience the company puts to work for its growing list of customers as it continues to develop leading-edge technology.
Megger’s latest technology includes the revolutionary new TDS NT, a unique, all-in-one cable testing and diagnosis system. It offers two proven wave forms — Very Low Frequency Cosine Rectangular (VLF CR) for withstand testing, and Damped AC voltage (DAC) for non-destructive partial discharge diagnosis. Ideal for testing cables to international standards, such as the IEEE 400.3 and IEC 60502-2, the TDS can also be used for DC tests and sheath tests to the IEC 60229 standard. When paired with a step voltage sensor, it can even be used for precise pinpointing of sheath faults.
Also part of its cable testing and diagnostics lineup is the portable combined CDS (cable diagnostic system). Megger’s CDS is used as a universal dielectric diagnostic system on PE / XLPE-insulated cables, as well as paper-insulated cables worldwide. It combines the known methods of Isothermal Relaxation Current measurement (IRC-Analysis) and Voltage Return Method (RVM-Analysis) for aging and deterioration diagnostics. Due to the low charging voltage of the measurement, the CDS works absolutely non destructive.
These are just two examples of Megger’s full line of cable testing and diagnostics solutions. For more information on these products, contact Megger.
