T&R Test Equipment is a market leader in the field of protection test equipment. The range includes primary and secondary test equipment up to 6000 Amps, voltage sources, micro-ohmmeters and high voltage test systems up to 100kV.

The PT15-10S high voltage DC test set is designed to perform tests on installed cable and jointing systems. The unit has a zero to 15kV DC variable output with a maximum charging capability of 10mA. A zero-volt interlock is fitted that prevents the output being switched on unless the output control is at zero.



  • 0 to 15kV DC output voltage.
  • 10mA output capability.
  • Both voltage and current metered on HV output.
  • Automatic earth system for dumping capacitive loads.
  • HV output plug and socket connections.
  • Key operated supply switch to prevent unauthorised operation.
  • Zero-volt interlock.
  • Visual indication of test piece failure.
  • Compact unit with lightweight insulated case.


  The unit includes an automatic load discharge system that discharges the cable under test when the output is switched off or breakdown occurs. The internal dumping system can discharge a maximum of 1.25kJ, corresponding to 7.5F at 15kV. A DP20 discharge probe is also supplied as standard with the PT15-10S, allowing cables with capacitance of up to 12F to be discharged at 15kV.

In the event of a test object failure, the overload circuit will automatically switch OFF the output voltage and earth the output via the internal discharge circuit

The output voltage is metered by a large linear, analog instrument scaled 0 to 15kV. The current in the test object is metered by a second analog meter scaled 0 to 10. The meter reads 0 to 10mA directly, or 0 to 1mA when the divide by 10 push button is operated.

The HV output from the unit uses a high quality plug and socket system, allowing for easy cable replacement. The PT15-10S is one of a range of high voltage test systems manufactured by T&R Test Equipment. DC systems are available up to 30kV and AC systems up to 100kV.
