Climatic Chamber

High-voltage testing facility with sensitive partial discharge measurements

Equipped with a high-voltage testing facility with sensitive partial discharge measurements

The Climatic chamber is equipped with a high-voltage testing facility with sensitive partial discharge measurements. We perform climatic tests according to IEC 62271-304 (formerly IEC-Report 60932) in order to prove the adequacy of indoor switchgear under adverse climatic conditions by means of an accelerated endurance test.

Technical data:

  • Maximum voltage: 100 kV

  • Temperature range: -40°C to 70°C

  • Relative humidity: up to 95 %

  • Temperature gradient greater than 0.5 K/min

  • Inner room dimensions: length x width x depth 5m x 3.9m x 3.9m
