Smart Digital Controller for Impulse Generator

Smart Digital Controller for Impulse Generator
Very easy control an impulse generator, just dial the actual impulse voltage, click on HV-ON and FIRE. (Impulse)








Integrated Impulse Generator

Generator is a one piece complet impulse test equipment, on wheels.
Very easy to test a transformer:
1.) Roll it over to transformer.
2.) Ground the generator.
3.) Connect only 3 wires to transformer: voltage, return (shunt),ground.
On Smart Controller. Dial BIL Set 50%, press HV ON, IMPULSE Few second later.
Set 100%, press HV ON, IMPULSE.
Digitizer recorded every voltage- and current waveforms.
It makes decision go - no go, good or bad the transformer.
Price: 200 kV $ 58.000.-

Digital recorder


High Voltage Instrument has developed a revolutionary new high voltage impulse measuring system with fiber optic isolation.
Our patented isolation system created by  Dr. Aladar Kohalmi PhD.
(Patent Pending No. P0402120)  digitizer is built into the high voltage divider, connected to the computer by using fiber optic cable.
This system eliminates the galvanic connection between the high voltage ground (impulse generator), the measuring system (computer) and the operator.
The old outdated digital recorders still use coaxial cables and heavy EMI/RFI enclosures.
During the fast rise-time of the high voltage impulse, high current flows through the grounding wires and coaxial cable shield, causing large measurement errors.
Furthermore, this high current can potentially damage the computer, and endanger the operator.
In our years of experience in the field, we have seen a difference in potential greater than 50 kV between a "well" grounded generator and far earth ground.
