The PD-TaD 62 portable PD diagnostics system is used in combination with a BAUR VLF generator for carrying out:
Partial discharge testing and location
VLF cable testing with parallel partial discharge testing
Parallel partial discharge and dissipation factor measurement
With the partial discharge testing and the dissipation factor measurement, two effective and proven methods for evaluating the ageing condition of medium-voltage cables and cable accessories have been combined in a single compact and portable device. The result is a one-step 360° cable analysis with: early detection and localisation of weak points through a PD measurement, in addition to the evaluation of dielectric ageing based on the dissipation factor values.
The ability to perform partial discharge and dissipation factor measurements simultaneously saves a lot of time and leads to increased efficiency during inspection of the entire cable network. The simultaneous monitoring of tan δ values and PD activities, also helps detect hidden faults (e.g. moist joints).
Light, robust and portable: PD-TaD is ideal for mobile use in the field. The device and accessories are convenient to transport in robust transport cases.
