Haefely PIM 100 Module Description:

IEC 61000-4-5 and ANSI C62.41 describe a combination Wave or Hybrid generator with defined o pen AND short circuit waveforms. The Combination Wave is used to test AC and DC power systems. Safety is paramount with surge impulses. The PIM 100 High Voltage connections are all linked into the System Safety Concept which prevents high voltage plugs or cables from exposing operators to potentially lethal voltages. This concept is extended to Coupling/Decoupling Networks (CDNs) connected to the PIM 100 output. PIM 100 as part of the PSURGE 8000 Surge Platform System can be used together with Coupling/Decoupling Networks (CDNs) for superimposition of the impulse on AC and DC power lines. Single and three phase CDNs hav e multiplexed inputs, allowing up to 3 impulse modules to be connected. A full suite of test impulses can then be performed completely automatically and without the need to power down and reconnect the EUT. PSURGE 8000 Surge Platform can perform all the programming functions required to perform IEC and ANSI testing without the need of a control computer. Voltage and Current monitor circuits enable quick a nd easy verification of the impulse shape and amplitude. In addition, peak measurement circuits are used to help determin e EUT PASS/FAIL criterion. The integration in the WinFEAT&R control and report ing software package enhances an efficient setup and operation of this test system. Most importantly, the test load can be transferred to a computer freeing valuable resources.


International application – Specifically designed to meet and exceed the requirements of IEC, EN, and ANSI tests for power line applications.

Accurate Impulse Synchronization - The PIM 100 impulses can be applied to the AC power wave with 1° accuracy.

Safe and Easy - The interlocked HV section and the integrated controller allow your operators to test safely and easily.

Sturdy and Reliable – Careful component selection ensures that the PIM 100 will continue to operate un der the most strenuous testing regime.

Report Generation - The unit can automatically generate test reports without a computer. Add WinFEAT&R control and reporting software to collect and collate data in any format you like.

Faster completion of testing program - The PIM 100 connects to an EUT via either a PCD 100 or 130. Both have multiplexed inputs, enabl ing testing to continue with other pulses without having to remove power from th e EUT
