With the ARC-Detection it is possible to detect early micro-discharges in a part of the insulation. These micro-discharges cannot be detected with a high voltage test. Over the course of time the micro-discharges weaken the insulation system and a disruptive breakdown can be caused. This can partly take up to several years but can also occur within a few days. 

With the ARC-Detection you check the insulation quality of your products. In conjunction with our high voltage test devices the ARC-Detection can be performed with the AC high voltage test. Admittedly alone with the AC high voltage test insulation weaknesses can be detected with high voltages but by means of the ARC-Detection an error is definitely detected. Therefore we recommend its performance together with the AC high voltage test.

The company SPS electronic offers the ARC-Detection in various high voltage test devices. Depending on the application you can for example use a high voltage test device of series HA 1805.
