measurement verified
At the heart of the ProfLine 2100 system is a fully compliant harmonics analyzer and
flickermeter. DSP-based 1 M sample per second, no-gap/no overlap 200 mS data acquisition and
powerful FFT analysis ensures full compliance harmonics testing based on IEC 61000-4-7. Direct
PC bus access ensures higher data throughput than is found on most single box IEEE-488-based
test system. Streaming real-time data display and storage allows measured data to be replayed
and analyzed in complete confidence, speeding up fault detection.
All EUT electrical parameters are monitored and stored continuously. Distortion, current harmonics and power consumption are checked against relevant IEC class test limits for pass/fail
detection and dynamic class C and D test limit calculation.
Independent verification has confirmed the following is correctly implemented:
Measurement accuracy for electrical parameters such as voltage, current, harmonics and flickermeter is as per IEC requirement
Software applies relaxation as and when the situation warrants it for pass/fail decision
Compliance to all test equipment requirements as per IEC 61000-4-7 and IEC 61000-4-15
A true measure of class. The unique concept for the ProfLine 2100 system measurement
section is a cutting edge PC based analyzer. The measurement section is split into two parts,
one being the advanced coupling unit CCN 1000 whilst the PC provides the digitization of the
analogue signals, data processing and analysis. This approach has been extremely successful
in keeping up with changes to the standards that demanded major increase in data processing
and analysis capability.
CCN 1000. This advanced coupling unit provides quick and easy single cable connection
between the AC power source output and the EUT, plus the required isolation and signal conditioning. Precision, no-burden, active hall-effect current transformers ensure accurate current
sensing over 4 A, 16 A and 40 A ranges simultaneously with 200 A peak capability for maximum

All harmonics tests can be accessed from the ProfLine 2100’s single control and data
display window on the PC. With a few mouse clicks the test can be set up and run
quickly and easily.
The operator is presented with a simple screen that shows the type of test to be run and the
test duration, with clearly labelled buttons for the test to start or stop. Voltage and current
time domain waveform displays are updated in real time during the test. All power analyzer
parameters such as Vrms, Irms, Ifundemental, Ipeak, crest factor, real power, apparent power
and power factor are clearly displayed throughout the test and updated in real time.
The harmonics window displays instantaneous current harmonics and a line marking the applicable test limits. AC source voltage and EUT power are also monitored continuously throughout
the entire test. Voltage distortion and current harmonics are checked against the IEC class limits
for preliminary pass/fail detection. The continuous monitoring of EUT power consumption allows
class C and D limits to be calculated dynamically.
Harmonics analysis is implemented using the high performance DSP based plug-in A/D card
connected directly to the CCN 1000 signal conditioning unit through a shielded cable. Each Power
phase has four dedicated measurement channels- a total of 12 in 3-phase systems – ensuring
accurate full compliance to the harmonics standard.
The software will also automatically apply any relaxation of limits (e.g. POHC) should the situation
warrant it and will indicate this in the test report.

Flicker test made easy
Flicker tests are run from the same user interface as the harmonics module, making it
familiar to the user. Set up is minimal and tests run can be started quickly.
During each test run two graphical windows are displayed and updated continuously. One
window will display the Vrms whilst the other can be user selected to display absolute voltage
deviation or percentage, dt, dmax, dc, instantaneous Pst or Plt against their respective limits.
At the end of the test sequence, both short-term flicker (Pst) and long-term (Plt) are calculated
and a clear pass/fail indication is provided.
Embedded in the ProfLine 2100 software is an IEC 61000-4-15 compliant single/threechannel flickermeter for 1- and 3-phase application. Single phase output configuration can use
both the programmable and real IEC 60725-compliant output impedance to perform flicker
measurement. Lumped reference impedance for 1- and 3-phase system impedances with varying
current carrying capacity are available as an option.

Reference impedance. For single phase systems the impedance is programmed into the
source, therefore no physical impedance is required thus making the system more simple and
lower costs. This approach is not possible in the three phase systems as it is not possible
to separate the line and neutral impedances. Therefore the appropriate three phase impedance
unit is supplied as part of the system.
Test Reports and Data Logging. Reports can be printed at the end of each test report or
retrospectively to support CE approval or for inclusion in a Technical Report File. The results file
includes voltage and current waveform graphs, current harmonics spectrum and class limits and
a complete flicker test analysis. The graph can be printed or stored in ASCII format on disc along
with timing waveform data for use in detailed reporting or for further analysis using applications
such as Excel.
AC Switching Unit
NSG 2200 AC Switch unit for complaint -4-11 and -4-34 testing. Available as either single
or three phase, these units use solid state IGBTs to rapidly switch between two sources of AC
supply. Typically this will be between the mains supply and a programmable AC source. The
AC source will be set at the lower voltage required for the test with the mains supplying the
Controlled by Teseq WIN 2120 software and able to switch within the required 5 μs this device
enables the standard to be fully met. Since the higher voltage level is supplied by the users
mains system, the inrush current is limited only by the mains supply and not by the equipment.
The NSG 2200 is able to handle 50 amps rms current continuously and up to 500 amps inrush

Magnetic Field
Immunity test coils
Magnetic field immunity testing. The power sources in the ProfLine 2100 systems make
an ideal source for mains frequency magnetic field testing. Used in conjunction with the Teseq
INA 2170 test coil and interface unit the supplies can be controlled by the WIN 2120 software to
generate the required fields and frequencies.
Use of the clean sinusoidal programmable supply ensures that tests can be performed with
either 50 Hz or 60 Hz for different regions. Both the continuous and short duration tests can be
easily programmed at levels up to 100 A/m continuous and 300 A/m short duration depending
on the selection of source.

Note: maximum and continuous coil field strengths can only be achieved using the correctly
specified NSG 1007 AC/DC Power Source. INA 2170 coils can also be used for IEC 61000-4-9
testing in conjunction with Teseq’s NSG 3060 generators.

ProfLine 2100: More than
just harmonics & flicker
ProfLine 2100 has the hardware and software flexibility to test to beyond harmonics and flicker emission. The fully programmable AC power source with arbitrary waveform
generation capability can be used in standalone mode in various applications for IEC 61000-4-X
testing at pre or full-compliance. The ProfLine system has built in IEC 61000-4-13 immunity testing
to harmonics and inter-harmonics standard which sets this system apart as a fully equipped
test station for power quality.
IEC 61000-4-8: Power frequency magnetic field immunity. Using the power source built
into the ProfLine 2100 system the frequency and test level can be accurately controlled. This is
ideal if your target market uses a different mains system to your local supply.
Loop antenna, interface unit and control software (WIN 2120) are available as options.
IEC 61000-4-11: AC Voltage dips, short interruptions and variations. The 1–5 µs rise
and fall time and the 500 amp inrush current requirements of the standard for voltage dips and
interruptions mean that a power source alone cannot meet the standard.
The NSG 2200 AC switch can switch between a power source and the mains supply within the
required time enabling the user to meet both requirements.
IEC 61000-4-13: Immunity to harmonics and inter-harmonics. ProfLine 2100’s built in
sweep generator provides full compliance testing to IEC 61000-4-13. Simple pre-programmed
test levels at various test classes makes testing simple. At a click of the start button the two
digitally controlled generators superimpose harmonics and inter-harmonics up to the 40th
harmonics order (2 kHz for 50 Hz and 2.4 kHz for 60 Hz). The programmable AC power source
generates combination waveforms better known as the flat top, overswing and meister curve,
tests individual harmonics, and does a sweep to check for resonance points. The user can then
go back to those resonance frequencies and test again. The operator can record any unusual
behaviour at the observation section which will be included in the report. Pass/fail decision will
be determined by the user based on the evaluation of the EUT during the test.
IEC 61000-4-14: Voltage Fluctuation. A simple screen allows the operator to select the level
of severity of test to be run and the desired nominal test voltage and frequency. All voltage
fluctuation test parameters can be customized by the user as required, ensuring the ProfLine
2100 fully meets the standard. During testing, the EUT load current is measured continuously to
help the operator observe and diagnose potential unit failures.
IEC 61000-4-17: Ripple on DC input power ports. The test sequence implemented by this
test consists of the application of an AC ripple of specified peak to peak value as a percentage
of the DC voltage and at a frequency determined as a multiple of the AC Line frequency. The
ripple waveform consists of a sinusoidal linear waveshape. The user selectable severity levels
can easily meet the multiple of the power frequency of 1, 2, 3, 6 and at the user specified level
up to a staggering 20 times the power frequency at 25% Vdc-peak-peak.
IEC 61000-4-27: Voltage and phase unbalance. This test is only for three-phase systems
as it involves voltage and phase unbalance between phases of a three phase supply network.
Voltage unbalances are applied at different levels depending on product categories. The user
must determine the product class and select the appropriate test level. During the test run,
voltage and phase changes are applied. The voltage levels and phase shifts are determined by
the values set in the data entry grid. Predefined test level are also provided to help the operator
with the settings.
Note: The ProfLine 2100 does not fully meet the IEC 61000-4-27 in respect of this particular test,
1–5 µs rise fall rate not achievable and maximum output voltage is 300 V. So whilst it can meet
the 110% of Unom required by the product standards (110% of 230 V is 253 V) it does not reach
the 150% of Unom mentioned in the equipment standard (150% of 230 V is 345 V). 45 kVA units
have a 400 Volt option.
IEC 61000-4-28: Frequency variation. The system provides an open field for the operator to
enter the amount of frequency variation or simply load and amend the predefined tests level
provided. Test parameters for the duration and frequency deviation can be easily customized,
enabling ProfLine 2100 to meet this standard should there be changes to it in the future.
IEC 61000-4-29: DC dips, variations and short interruptions. Pre-compliance test for DC
voltage dips can be set up quickly using the software. The test sequence implemented by this test
consists of a series of DC voltage dips (to less than DC nominal) or interruptions (dip to 0 V). It is
also possible to select voltage variations which cause the DC voltage to change at a programmed
rate to a specified level and then return at the same or a different rate to the nominal DC level.
These dips and variations can be applied at different levels and durations for different product
categories. The user must determine the product class and select the appropriate test file. The
selected levels and durations are visible on screen and can be edited and saved to a new setup file
if needed. This allows a library of test files for specific product categories to be created. According
to the standard, the use of a test generator with higher or lower voltage or current capability is
allowed provided that the other specifications are preserved. The test generator steady state
power/current capability shall be at least 20% greater than the EUT power/current ratings.
This means that for many EUT’s a 25 A capable generator is not needed. However, since the rise
and fall time requirements may not be met under all circumstances, this is a pre-compliance
test only.
IEC 61000-4-34: AC Voltage dips, short interruptions and variations. Similar to IEC
61000-4-11 but applying to equipment requiring greater than 16 amps per phase, this standard
can be met by the higher power models in the range. Teseq is ready to advise you on the ideal
configuration and to discuss the limitations on the maximum current due to the selection of the
various units in the system.
