Project Description

Cables for HV testing


Flexible silicone frostproof high-voltage cables KEP-100, KEP-70 and KEP-70p are suitable for high-voltage testing both as part of ETL vans and separately, as well as for use in the measuring circuits of tgδ insulation (KEP-12t). Сable test vans ETL-40V and ETL-80V made by

KharkovEnergoPribor as a means of testing and detecting cable faults are are both supplied with flexible silicone frostproof highvoltage cables, which retains its flexibility at the temperatures as low as minus 40˚С.

Cable Insulation Tester VLF-60


VLF-60 Cable Insulation Tester made by KEP is a very low frequency high potential tester that ensures efficient testing and fault location on medium voltage cables. Very low frequency (VLF) testing involves applying frequency in the range of 0.01 to 0.1 Hz to the cable

under test, which is non-destructive to insulation of proper quality, but is enough to detect cable faults. Compared to DC cable testing, which can be damaging to good insulation, VLF testing does not have such a detrimental effect on the cable being tested.
