High Voltage, Inc. is an American test equipment manufacturing company located in rural Copake, NY. We are known for high quality, easy to use equipment and for our commitment to providing the best customer and product support in the industry.
As we matured we expanded into larger products. Cable fault locators (thumpers) as well as higher power ac (HPA) dielectric testers as might be used in a factory environment. Our HPA line of ac testers are available with outputs up to 300 kV ac and power levels up to 40 kVA and can be customized with various levels of control sophistication.
Our new PAR line of ac dielectric testers are designed to meet the needs of those who need power levels up to 250 kVA, to be able to test their highly capacitive test loads. Using ac resonant technology outputs of 50 kV at 5A (for example) are possible with an input of only 230 v, 90 A. That is an input of 20 kVA for an output of 250 kVA. (Model PAR-50250FC5)
The PAR models consist of a control section and a high voltage section. While large, they are transportable by van or trailer for field work. The control section includes the input breaker, variable (motorized) input control, a PLC controller, and connections for controlling the hv section. The high voltage section is a steel tank with a phenolic output bushing. Inside this tank is a variable-core reactor in an insulating oil bath with an air space at the top to allow for thermal expansion.
The variable reactor looks similar to a transformer but has a moveable core that allows the inductance value to vary to match the capacitance of the load, thereby achieving resonance. This effectively cancels the load capacitance, as far as input power requirements are concerned. Once in resonance, the input voltage is increased until the desired output voltage level is achieved. For a capacitive load that must be tested at power frequency the PAR reduces power requirements, as well as test equipment size by one tenth to one thirtieth, compared to a test transformer.
The HVI PAR family of resonant as dielectric testers are perfect for power frequency testing of power cables, rotating machinery, bushings, instrument transformers, transformers, shunt reactors, and many other products.

High Voltage, Inc. introduces the new “The Best Method of Measuring Concentric Neutral Integrity vital to maintaining system stability, reliability, and safety”
The Ω-CHECK® Tester is a unique and very useful product. It injects an AC current through a live cable neutral and measures the voltage drop to calculate the resistance of the neutral to determine the level of deterioration: how many strands have opened due to corrosion. It is a vital tool for URD systems and to measure the resistance of substation ground cables.

OMICRON is excited to host and lead the discussion on testing power transformers at the 3-day Transformer Diagnostic Workshop (TDW) - Special Live Interactive Virtual Event on September 28 - 30, 2021.
All are welcome to register and attend the event. The registration fee is $195. Learn more on the event website.
The Transformer Diagnostic Workshop (TDW) will cover everything you need to best apply testing techniques to power transformers as part of the standard condition assessment protocol. You will learn how to use and assess these transformer tests. Additionally, to further demonstrate the value of these diagnostic tests for the industry, case studies will be provided.
- Power Factor
- Exciting Current
- Turns/Voltage Ratio
- Leakage Reactance
- DC Winding Resistance
- Sweep Frequency Response Analysis (SFRA)
This year, because last year was such a success, we invited a well-known industry expert to be the Keynote Speaker, Bill Chui, Managing Director – System & Asset Strategies - Southern California Edison. Bill is the Managing Director of T&D System & Asset Strategies at Southern California Edison (SCE), responsible for the integrated system planning and asset management strategies to address various transformational opportunities for the electric grid. His keynote address title is Resilience Considerations for the Electricity Sector. Learn more on the event website.
If you are interested in learning more about OMICRON’s TESTRANO 600 and FRANEO 800, we recommend attending the 2-hour Complimentary Virtual Demonstration of the event on September 30, 2021.
