The Velonex 515 Surge Transient Generator is designed to produce the Surge Withstand Capability (SWC) wave shape and characteristic that meet and exceed those required by the IEEE/ANSI standard C37.90a-1978 (formerly IEEE standard 472-1974).

The Velonex 515 Surge Transient Generator is an easy-to-operate completely solid-state and fully shielded instrument, providing bursts of damped sine waves. This unit is completely protected against damage by a momentary or sustained external short. It is fully shielded to prevent extraneous burst signals from feeding into any external equipment, and solid-state design eliminates jitter and erratic performance.


Test Burst Rate Manual one-shot, plus continuously variable from <20 bursts per second to >120 bursts per second, plus 60 Hz or 120 Hz synchronized with power line. Phase or burst is adjustable through >320° with respect to power-line frequency, plus external trigger one-shot to 120 bursts per second.
Test Duration Continuously adjustable from <2 seconds to >10 seconds by front panel control, plus a front panel indicator for test in progress
Output Isolation Output Isolation is provided on the inner conductors of two type UG-931 High-Voltage Connectors. Output may be directly applied to any power line voltage up to 500 Vrms
Shielding Transient burst signal generator is fully shielded to prevent unwanted radiation or conduction of signal
Monitor Output A low-level 1000:1 attenuated output referenced to ground is provided for scope monitoring
Trigger Output A front panel scope trigger output signal is provided, which is present prior to turning the high voltage on
High Voltage Two push buttons (located on opposite sides of the instrument) must be simultaneously pushed in order to obtain high voltage output
Input Voltage 115V±10%, 60 Hz
Input Power 100W
