METSCO’s high-voltage (HV) laboratory is designed to help manufacturers and end users with design, production, qualification and acceptance testing, and condition assessment and root cause failure/forensic analysis on electrical equipment, all within a rapid turnaround time. We perform these tests in accordance with popular industry standards such as IEEE, IEC, ANSI, CSA, UL, NEMA, ICEA, AEIC, and ASTM, among others.
The wide range of services offered by our new HV laboratory includes:
Design/qualification tests for medium-voltage (MV) cable accessories and low-voltage (LV) cables
Long-term testing of MV and LV cables
Prototype and R&D testing
Production testing of switchgear assemblies
Root cause failure analysis of cables, switchgear, transformers, and other equipment
Voltage endurance testing of rotating machines
HV live-line & safety tools testing
