Testing

Systems and materials can be tested in our laboratories. More than 110 years of experience in the field of electrical insulating materials makes Von Roll a first choice for insulation systems.

These systems as well as all the individual materials are fully tested according International Standards such as IEC and UL® in our own facilities. We have two main laboratories:

  • HV laboratory in Breitenbach, CH: Specialized in thermal, mechanical and electrical testing of high-voltage materials and systems.
  • UL® laboratory in Schenectady, USA: Specialized in all types of UL testing for low and medium voltage system, mostly according UL 1446

Both of our laboratories test Von Roll materials and systems for our own development and validation as well as a service for our customers.

The following evaluations are a sample of what we offer:

  • UL 1446/IEEE117IEEE275/IEEE429
  • IEEE1043 voltage endurance
  • NEMA MG1 immersion testing
  • IEC60034 testing
  • IEC60216 temperature index
  • Partial  Discharge measurement (IEC60270)
  • Dissipation  Factor measurement (e.g. IEC60034-27-3)
  • Impulse Voltage  Test (e.g. IEC60034-15)
  • Thermal  Conductivity measurement (ASTM C518)
  • Thermal imaging
  • System tests,  e.g. Formette / Motorette Testing
  • Electrical lifegraphs of systems
  • Thermal lifegraphs of systems
  • Failure analysis
  • Evaluation of manufacturing parameters for Resin-Rich and VPI technology

All test specimens can be manufactured in our application laboratories with professional industrial manufacturing.
