Safety is paramount with surge impulses. The PIM 110 High Voltage connections are all linked into the System Safety Concept which prevents high voltage plugs or cables from exposing operators to potentially lethal voltages. This concept is extended to Coupling/Decoupling Networks (CDNs) connected to the PIM 110 output.
PIM 110 as part of the PSURGE 8000 Surge Platform System can be used together with Coupling/Decoupling Networks (CDNs) for superimposition of the impulse on AC and DC power lines. Single and three phase CDNs have multiplexed inputs, allowing up to 3 impulse modules to be connected. A full suite of test impulses can then be performed completely automatically and without the need to power down and reconnect the EUT.
PSURGE 8000 Surge Platform can perform all the programming functions required to perform IEC and ANSI testing without the need of a control computer. Voltage and Current monitor circuits enable quick and easy verification of the impulse shape and amplitude. In addition, peak measurement circuits are used to help determine EUT PASS/FAIL criterion.
