OMICRON is an international company providing innovative testing and diagnostic solutions to the electrical power industry.

Diagnostic solutions for power applications

OMICRON’s products provide condition assessments of primary and secondary equipment of systems, giving clients the highest level of confidence.

The company also has expertise in consulting, commissioning, testing, diagnosis and training.

OMICRON’s solutions are used in more than 140 countries, providing cutting-edge technology and excellent quality.

Over the years, the company has built up its knowledge and customer service support, and now has offices in North America, Europe, South East Asia and the Middle East, as well as a worldwide network of distributors and representatives.

Diagnostic technical support

OMICRON ensures that electrical power supplies work reliably 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Clients receive free, professional technical support around the clock, with nearly 40 support engineers and more than 100 training courses worldwide.

Test equipment for electrical power systems

OMICRON’s test equipment is ideal for all areas of the electrical power system and for any environment. The company provides state-of-the-art testing solutions for protection systems, which are continuously developed and maintained to ensure that clients have the necessary solutions for complex challenges.

Performance testing for device communications

Major relay vendors use OMICRON products to test the performance of IEC 61850 devices, which is the international standard device power utility communication in substations and is responsible for defining the communication between intelligent electronic devices (IED).

IEC 61850 also specifies common data models for the IEDs, as well as the complete engineering process.

OMICRON has the most comprehensive range of advanced IEC 61850 testing tools for protection engineers in substations or laboratories.

Testing solutions for power transformers and monitoring systems

Power transformers and monitoring systems are key in energy distribution and transmission.

To ensure they operate effectively and efficiently, OMICRON has developed a range of solutions that operate in line with international standards, including:

  • IEC 60270
  • IEC 60076-1
  • IEC 60076-3
  • IEC 60076-11
  • IEEE Std C57.12.00
  • IEEE Std C57.12.90
  • IEEE Std C57.113
  • IEEE Std C57.124
  • IEEE C57.127

Grounding system testing

OMICRON’s test solutions provide a safe, quick and reliable determination of grounding systems, as well as step and touch voltages in and around substations.

Diagnostic solutions for high-voltage cables

High-voltage cables are used to supply power in densely populated areas or for offshore installations.

To ensure they function correctly, OMICRON has a variety of international standard online and offline testing and monitoring solutions that provide reliable operation and extended service life for cables and cable accessories, including partial discharge analysis.

Test solutions for transmission line parameters

With OMICRON’s test solutions, clients can determine the required line parameters in a quick and safe way.

Correct line parameters are crucial for the reliable and selective operation of distance protection device. It also allows an accurate fault location after an event on the line by evaluating the fault recorder.

Instrument transformer testing solutions

OMICRON’s test systems provide high-precision, automatic testing and assessment of current transformers to IEC 60044-1, IEC 60044-6, IEC 61869-2, IEEE C57.13 and IEEE C57.13.6 standards, voltage transformers to IEC 60044-2, IEC 60044-5, IEC 61869-3, IEC 61869-5, IEEE C57.13 and IEEE C57.13.6 standards, and combined transformers to IEC 60044-3 and IEC 61850 standards.

Measurement testing equipment

OMICRON’s product range includes versatile, portable and highly accurate testing solutions for all types of measuring equipment, such as power quality measurement devices, electricity meters and transducers.

These products can be used for calibration during the development process, type testing and commissioning.

Insulation tests for switchgear components

OMICRON provides insulation tests for the high voltage in switchgears, which can create stress on the materials used in the equipment.

Gas-insulated switchgear systems require the same tests as other systems, but they can be difficult to access, requiring special solutions.

Monitoring solutions for rotating machines

Rotating machines use insulation, which can age over time and lead to failure, making it important to understand the condition of the machines.

OMICRON supplies testing and monitoring solutions for the reliable condition assessment of insulation, measurement of power / dissipation factor, dielectric measurement over a large frequency range, the polarisation index and partial discharge measurements.

Users can perform a fast and accurate condition assessment in a variety of electrical machines to identify potential problems and risks quickly.

Primary testing and monitoring

Typical customers that use OMICRON products for primary testing are engineers and technicians working in commissioning, maintenance and test fields in utilities and industry.

Testing with communication protocols

The application of communication protocols is increasing in the electric power industry. More applications in the substation use the latest power utility communication technologies for exchanging mission-critical information.

OMICRON’s testing tools support engineers and technicians to master these new technologies.

CMC 356

The CMC 356 is a universal relay test set and commissioning tool.

CPC 100

OMICRON’s CPC 100 is the base for multiple accessories, facilitating further applications such as tan delta measurements and line and ground impedance measurements.

CT Analyzer

The CT Analyzer automatically determines all relevant current transformer values and compares the results with the selected standard.


The DANEO 400 is a hybrid signal analyser for power utility automation systems.


MONTRANO continuously monitors the dielectric condition of insulation in bushings and inside power transformers under load.

Patriot Generating Station, Pennsylvania

Patriot is an 829MW combined-cycle power plant constructed on an 85-acre site in Clinton Township, Lycoming County, Montgomery Borough, Pennsylvania, US.
