Viola and Viola TD VLF tester and diagnostics device

The portable BAUR viola and viola TD devices are used

  • for testing medium-voltage cables and electrical equipment (generators, transformers and switchgear)
  • for cable sheath testing
  • for cable diagnostics (viola TD):
    -Dissipation factor measurement and Monitored Withstand Test with tan ?
    -Partial discharge measurement*
    -Full Monitored Withstand Test with tan ? and partial discharge measurement*

The VLF testing makes it possible to locate insulation faults in plastic- and paper-insulated mass-impregnated cables in the shortest of testing times without impairing the quality of the surrounding insulating material. The dissipation factor diagnostics with 0.1 Hz VLF truesinus? provides differentiated
information on the ageing condition of paper-insulated mass-impregnated and PE/XLPE cables. In the case of PE/XLPE cables, the dissipation factor measurement is capable of differentiating between new, slightly or severely ?water tree?-damaged cables. This makes it possible to prioritise the need to replace cables.
The Monitored Withstand Test with tan delta combines the cable testing and dissipation factor measurement, allowing an accurate and comprehensive assessment of the cable condition. In addition, there is minimum load on the cable due to the optimised test duration.
