High-voltage test

High-voltage tests are carried out to prove the long-term insulation strength. To that end, a test voltage of several thousand volts is applied to simulate the stressing of the insulation during the entire life-cycle of the device.

The corresponding high voltage is applied between live parts and the enclosure parts made of metal or plastics. The leakage current in the milliampere range required by the standard must not be exceeded. Depending on the standard, the test is performed before or after a climatic test.

Our ambience simulation laboratory is equipped with flexible test equipment, so that both simple and complex test specimens can be tested in conformity with the standards. 

The tests that we carry out are accredited by the DAkkS (German Accreditation Bureau) and till the DNV GL certification process was stopped (October 2020), they were also DNV GL certified.

Customers can use our services both for approval tests as well as for comparative tests during the development phase. Please also inquire about other electrical tests in our laboratory for electrical safety.

Examples of the standards and methods in this domain are:

  • IACS E10 Test No. 10 High Voltage
  • DNVGL-CG-0339 Sec. 13
  • EN 62368-1 section
  • EN 60598-1 section 10.2.2
  • EN 61010-1 section
