The test bench simulates extreme working conditions on the object under test to accelerate its electrical ageing.
The high voltage can be applied permanently for long test time while the high current heating and cooling cycles leads to thermal and mechanical stresses.

Three-Phase Endurance Bench

For type testing on high-voltage cables and accessories, this endurance bench can simulate the stresses of an HTB network over a long test time.

Banc d'endurance triphasé

Single-Phase Endurance Bench

This type of bench makes it possible to use a control loop without high voltage to regulate the temperature in direct measurement.

It reproduces the conditions of a LV network.
