Test Equipment Description

EM Test VCS 500 M10 - Combination wave simulator for 10kV/5kA

The EM Test VCS 500 M10 combination wave simulator generates surge voltages up to 10kV and surge currents up to 5kVA as it is required for components testing (e.g. overvoltage protection for telecommunication devices). To apply the surge pulse to power supply lines an external single phase coupling/decoupling network comes standard or three-phase can be connected. The coupling modes and the source impedance are set automatically controlled by the VCS 500 M10. Perform pulsed magnetic field testing using IEC 61000-4-9 antenna.

Fail inputs are offered as standard for DUT monitoring purposes. Peak values of voltage and current are shown in the display and these values are transferred to the software for reporting.
Pre-programmed Standard Test routines allow highest user convenience. Still the VCS 500 M10 offers the Quick Start test routine where parameters can be changed on-line during the test to evaluate the susceptibility level of an individual DUT.

High Voltage Surge Review:

Surge pulses occur due to direct or indirect lightning strokes to an external (outdoor) circuit. This leads to currents or electromagnetic fields causing high voltage or current transients. Another source for surge pulses are switching transients originating from switching disturbances and systems faults. Due to the characteristic of the phenomenon nearly every electrical and electronical device may suffer from such lightning events which justifies the necessity of surge tests being widely performed. Surge voltage can reach several thousands of volts and surge current is seen to reach several thousands of amps.
