The TWA series instruments are designed for six-winding resistance measurement of power and distribution transformers. As well as resistance measurement of inductive test objects. In addition, they provide powerful tap changer analysis options by using proprietary, non-intrusive DVtest features. They generate true DC ripple free current with automatically regulated measurement and discharging circuit.

The transformer measurements performed with the TWA instruments require only one single-step cable setup. Each transformer configuration has a special measurement algorithm. They are optimized for the fast stabilization of test results. The test current can be automatically passed through the HV and LV winding simultaneously in order to achieve shorter stabilization times.

The TWA40D model is a true three-phase instrument capable of simultaneously measuring winding resistances of three phases of YN configuration. As well as three-phase tap changer analysis. All TWA instrument models are capable of both single-phase and three-phase demagnetization. The DV-Win software, provides full control of all TWA functions from a PC and additional test and analysis modes and features, is included with the TWA instruments.

TWA-TRT Safety Switchbox

The TWA-TRT Safety Switchbox is an optional accessory for TWA series of Tap Changer & Winding Analyzers and TRT series of Transformer Turns Ratio Tester, which share the common test leads. It ensures the safety of the operator during the change of test leads from one instrument to the other by safely grounding the test leads during the change of instruments.
