Company move to new premises successfully completed

For almost 2 years KILOVOLT Prueftechnik Chemnitz GmbH was looking for a new, bigger and seminal company location.

Numerous industrial properties in the city and outskirts of Chemnitz were checked as new potential locations. Finally, in September 2017 an agreement was reached with the new owners of the business park "Gewerbepark Wirkbau" - the MIB Wirkbau Chemnitz GmbH & Co. KG.

From October 2017 until January 2018 the construction work was in full swing. Modern and bright office rooms, a big conference and training room, a big production hall and warehouse and also a new big High Voltage Test Field were built. The new premises were fully equipped with high-efficiency glare-free LED lighting. Also investments into the IT infrastructure were made.  

From February 2018 the company move took place. This step was important for the further growth of KILOVOLT. Luckily we could move inside of our business park, this has significantly reduced the effort for the relocation. And fortunately, due to this our well know address and contact data remain unchanged.

All of our employees have rapidly settled in. Our production is running again one hundred percent. In the course of relocation many processes were optimized. R&D, production, service and logistics are now perfectly linked.

With the new company location KILOVOLT is well equipped for the future.

New generation of control for the VLF test sets

From 08/2016 a new generation of control for the VLF Test Sets is available.

Advantages of the new control:

  • significant increase in performance, i.e. higher capacitances and longer cable runs can be tested
  • industrial grade OLED-Display, perfectly readable in dark and in sunshine, full contrast >2000:1 even down to -20°C
  • multi-language menu (engl./ger./span./port./frech./ital./russ./pol./turk.)
  • USB-Interface / Firmware-Updates by USB flash drive 
  • optional extension of the VLF frequency range down to 0.02Hz

Digital Meters for the DC Hipot Test Sets

As of now new Digital Meters are optionally available for our DC Hipot Test Sets.

Two modes of displaying the measured values can be selected by a switch: 

  • combined view: analogue pointer plus digital value
  • graphical historic data with selectable time base
