High power testing

Our short-circuit testing experience began with a temporary set-up at Bunnerong Power Station. Here the first short-circuit tests in Australia were performed in 1930. Established in 1970, the Lane Cove Testing Station (LCTS) is Australia's internationally recognised high power test facility. Our laboratory has ASTA Intertek Accreditation. We test electrical equipment for manufacturers from all over the world and electricity supply authorities for the following purposes:

  • Product certification
  • Research and development
  • Investigative (troubleshooting)

We can perform the following range of tests:

  • Short-time current withstand
  • Making and breaking capacity:
    - Normal load 
    - Overload 
    - Short-circuit conditions
  • Arcing fault
  • Temperature rise
  • Degree of protection, IP68 and endurance
  • Dielectric test: Power Frequency and Lighting Impulse

Bookings are essential.
