Operational safety test of high-voltage measurement modules
The high risk potential during measurements in high-voltage environments requires an enhanced safety awareness. This means: The user’s life and health should be put in the fi rst place.
CSM therefore strongly recommends to check the high-voltage isolation of these measurement modules on a regular basis in order to ensure their operational safety at all times. This applies in particular, if high-voltage measurement modules are exposed to strong external influences.
For this purpose CSM developed the High-Voltage Isolation Testing Station, consisting of
- PC-based isolation test software
- a self-test adapter
- further accessories.
This station provides options for testing the high-voltage isolation of CSM measurement modules directly on the customer's premises. This is cost-saving and improves the availability of the high-voltage measurement modules as it is no longer necessary to send them to the manufacturer for testing. During a high-voltage isolation test, the isolation of a measurement input is tested against all other measurement inputs, as well as against the housing, the power supply and the CAN bus.
