The VAP6 is a portable unit that can be connected to the VIP 30/35 to carry out simplified testing. The test can be carried out in the following two cases:

  • The central unit is already supplied by the sensors or
  • The Main unit is not supplied. In this case, the VAP6 batteries supply power to the relay.

The test consists of:

  • Injecting a stimulus to simulate a phase fault
  • Injecting a stimulus to simulate an earth fault
  • Checking tripping

The VAP6 is supplied by batteries. Therefore, the parts of the main unit that run on AC current are not checked using this method (input and supply circuits).

Supply: 3 x 9v 6LR61 batteries

Weight: 0.45kg

Dimensions: 93 x 157 x 45 mm

Key Features

  • Portable relay tester
  • Compatible with a vast array of relay types including VIP30, VIP35, VIP300, VIP50, VIP37, VIP11, VIP11R, VIP12R, VIP13, VIP17, VIP200 and VIP201
  • Enables testing with the main unit supplied by sensors or using VAP6 batteries when the main unit is not supplied
  • Capable of simulating phase and earth faults for testing
  • Supplied with a 9-pin DB9 connector cable and an extra adapter cable for older relay ranges
  • Own power supply for independent operation
  • Handheld unit for easy handling and use


  • Electrical fault simulation — The VAP6 is designed to simulate electrical faults like phase and earth faults. This makes it an invaluable tool in testing the reliability and response of protection relays in electrical systems, ensuring their functionality in real-world fault conditions.
  • Construction and installation verification — During the construction or installation of new electrical systems, the VAP6 can verify the proper functioning of relays, ensuring they respond correctly to simulated faults before the system goes live.
  • Circuit breaker testing — The VAP6’s ability to perform trip tests without tripping the circuit breaker is crucial for maintaining and testing circuit breakers. This application is particularly important in ensuring the safety and efficiency of electrical circuits in both commercial and industrial settings.
  • Utility infrastructure reliability — For utility companies, the VAP6 is used to test and maintain the reliability of electrical infrastructure, ensuring consistent power delivery and system integrity.
  • Educational and training purposes — In educational settings or training facilities, the VAP6 provides hands-on experience for students and trainees, demonstrating how relays respond to various fault conditions in a controlled environment.
