Welcome to the AMOtronics website for "CIGRE 2022 - Technical Exhibition"

As a long-time manufacturer of measurement and control systems for low, medium and high voltage / high power laboratories, AMOtronics was once again an exhibitor at CIGRE 2022. On this website we have compiled information from our portfolio related to the topic of the exhibition.

There is currently a lot of news to report from AMOtronics. In addition to new hardware modules for our measurement and control systems, we would like to draw your attention in particular to the following innovations:

Ultra-Precision High Voltage Divider

BMWi ZIM LogoIn a funded project AMOtronics and the German National Metrology Institute (Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt - PTB) have developed an innovative measurement system for HV applications. It is characterized by a particularly high bandwidth, an extremely linear frequency response and exceptionally short settling times (step response <200ns, amplitude error <0.1%). The integrated HV pulse source enables both an automated calibration check as well as an automated adaptation of the calibration to the measurement chain. The novel measurement technology consisting of divider, calibrator and measurement system already fulfills the currently planned increased demands on measurement equipment in future editions of the standards IEC 60060 and 61083. The developed solution enables high-precision tests on one hand, but also serves as a reference system for test laboratories to develop missing standards and norms. Due to its compact design, the HV divider is ideally suited for demanding measurements up to 2kV.

New Lightning and Switching Pulse Test Software Suite

SATURN LPT SPT Studio - Configuration dialogThe "LPT & SPT Analysis - Suite" from AMOtronics has been enabling fully automated standard-compliant analyses and reports for lightning and switching pulse tests for many years. Now "LPT & SPT - Studio" has been added, a streamlined user interface for simplified configuration from the test engineer's point of view. It offers optimal support for automated series tests including evaluation and report generation - with just a few mouse clicks.

Navigate in Test Results via a Programmable Operating Panel

Saturn Studio II optionally usable via Loupedeck (external operating panel)In addition to the familiar mouse and keyboard operation, users of AMOtronics software now have the option of using an additional external hardware control panel ("Loupedeck"). Real buttons and rotary knobs allow the user to start measurements, release a trigger and to perform common display functions in curve windows, such as zooming, panning and precise cursor measurements. This new control option provides perfect haptic, oscilloscope-like operation if desired. Numerous functions can also be adapted to individual preferences.

Further Developments in the Field of Protective Equipment for Test Laboratories

The "Emergency Shutdown Controller (ESC)" monitors laboratory tests with AC or DC in real-time. If it detects that a measurement signal exceeds a configured threshold value, which depends on the current test phase, it initiates an emergency shutdown and other protective measures via its outputs within less than 1 μs. The ESC has been expanded with additional options that allow it to be integrated into a wide range of laboratory environments.

Please also take a look at our updated product brochures and flyers, available for download below.

Transient Recorder

Download AMOtronics Transient Recorder Brochure (PDF)The "SATURN Transient Recorder Series" provides modular expandable measurement systems for various requirements:

  • up to 240 channels depending on the selected housing (portable, desk, 19" rack-mountable)
  • analog inputs (200kS/s...1GS/s), optionally fiber-coupled measurement probes (FO)
  • analog outputs, digital I/O, controller, incremental encoder, signal conditioning
  • comfortable user software with extension packages (e.g. for Circuit Breaker Testing, Switching & Lightning Impulse Tests according to standard IEC 60060-1, IEC 60060-2 , IEC 61083 - 1 , IEC 61083-2 , STL / Short-Circuit-Testing-Liaison , ...)
  • Programming Interface (development of scripts and user interfaces for application-specific solutions)


Sequencer / Cycle Timer (Trigger Generator)

Download AMOtronics Sequencer Cycle Timer Brochure (PDF)The "SATURN Sequencer / Cycle Timer" is a programmable digital control unit. It enables test laboratories to perform high-precision real-time control of test equipment and/or DUTs (devices under test):

  • up to 192 inputs/outputs, electrical and/or fiber-optic (FO)
  • 10ns step size, 20ppm accuracy
  • resolution of 1/100 degree or synchronization with external pilot reference signals
    (e.g. main grid or generator frequency 16 2/3Hz .. 50/60Hz .. 400Hz ..)
  • operating system independent program execution on real-time processor


Arbitrary Delay Generator
