The Partial Discharge Diagnostic System PDTD60-2 (in combination with a VLF generator) enables comprehensive diagnosis with sinusoidal output voltage with constant frequency, which is a prerequisite for the comparison of PD and TD measurement results of cables with different lengths. Load-dependent and, therefore, constantly changing measurement frequencies offer no basis for this. The sine wave output voltage is the only described VLF voltage form in IEEE 400.2-2013 for partial discharge and tan delta measurements and provides clear procedures and quality control procedures. The comprehensive monitoring and diagnostics software b2 Suite® makes the diagnostic process easier. The software also quickly processes data and can be retrieved at any time.

Key Features

  • Compact, light and portable devices;
  • Simultaneous Partial Discharge and Tan Delta measurement;
  • b2 Suite® – comprehensive diagnostic software and database;
  • Display of cable route on OpenStreetMap®;
  • Very simple and clear measurement process;
  • Manual and automatic diagnostic mode;
  • Exact PD localization (PD mapping);
  • Phase-resolved PD display (PD Pattern);
  • PD Magnitude;
  • PD inception and extinction voltage;
  • PD rate;
  • High noise suppression by filtering;
  • Very high accuracy for Tan Delta measurement;
  • Extensive reporting;
  • Test setup according to IEC 60270 and calibration;
  • Monitored Withstand Test (MWT) according IEEE400.2-2013;
  • PD and TD measurement unit in one device; and
  • PD and TD measurement unit in battery operation.
