Cable Testing Accessories for Laboratories

Phenix Technologies manufactures additional testing equipment that is primarily used by cable manufacturers or type testing laboratories.

HEAT CYCLING TEST SETS, LOW VOLTAGE/HIGH CURRENT SUPPLY

Phenix Technologies’ Low Voltage Test Systems (LVTS) are used to simulate
operating current in a cable by inducing current in a test loop or circle.

Model Description
LVTS15-2000 18 V 2000 A
LVTS30-3000 36 V @ 3000 A
LVTS25-4000 30 V @ 4000 A
LVTS20-5000 24 V @ 5000 A
LVTS17-6000 30 V @ 6000 A

The actual rating and design appropriate for a particular application depends
on a number of factors:

Phenix Technologies offers:

TEMPORARY CABLE TEST TERMINATIONS, BOTH OIL AND WATER TYPE

Used to temporarily terminate shielded high voltage cables for testing. The application of high voltage to the cable requires a special process
in order to eliminate partial discharge at the cable ends. The terminations are ideally suited to perform partial discharge (PD) measurements,
impulse voltage testing, and tan delta (loss factor) measurements. The cable is prepared in the same way as for slip-on terminations; i.e.,
by stripping the cable to the outer semiconducting layer and removing the outer semiconducting layer.

OIL CABLE TEST TERMINATIONS

Phenix Technologies,
Model OT-100 is an oil
insulated cable termination
unit designed to provide
PD free voltage testing
up to 100 kV. The unit
consists of a pair of oil
terminations, as both
ends of the cable ends
require shielding.

WATER CABLE TEST TERMINATION SYSTEMS

Consisting of a pair of water
terminations to be used with a water
conditioning unit, the WTS series
includes terminations available up
to 800 kV for a maximum cable
diameter of 165 mmm over the
outer semiconducting layer.

Design features include:

  • Motorized hydraulic lifts which provide an extremely smooth and reliable lifting of the loaded termination
  • Casters and pull handles for quick and easy maneuvering
  • Stainless steel hydraulic no spill water connectors which allow the water hoses to be connected and disconnected without any water spillage to ensure an efficient and safe testing area

WATER CONDITIONER

Designed for use with cable terminations that use
water as the resistive medium.

The major components of the conditioning unit
consists of a process water holding tank, a
de-ionization tank, brine water tank (used to raise
water conductivity), water pump, water to water
heat exchanger, connections for external cooling
water, connections for two cable terminations, and
control unit. PLC based controls to control the
various valves, monitor flow rates, pressures, and
temperatures of each termination circuit, monitor /
adjust the conductivity of the water and monitor the
flow in the internal and external cooling circuits.

MULTI-CONDUCTOR CABLE TEST SYSTEMS

Perform quality assurance tests on multi-conductor cables. Phenix
Technologies’ multi-conductor cable test system is designed to test
reels of cable at the end of the factory production line and is
capable of testing multiple reels in parallel.

IMPULSE GENERATORS AND
MEASUREMENT SYSTEMS
100 kV TO 800 kv

Designed to generate impulse voltages that simulate lightning
strokes and switching surges as defined by IEC, ANSI/IEEE,
and other national standards.
