Milestones of the corporate development
b2 joins the OMICRON group as an independent company maintaining its own brand and organizational structure.
Further development of the existing devices and extension of the VLF generator family with VLF test sets with double (HVA68-2) and extreme output power (HVA30-7, HVA40-5 and HVA54-3).
b2 presents the HVA45TD the smallest VLF test system of its performance class with integrated Tan Delta diagnostics system.
Building on the worldwide success of the HVA series of VLF test sets, the HVA200 takes
our design principles on to the next level.
For the first time, we are able to offer VLF output voltages up to 200 kVpeak (141 kVrms), allowing the user to perform voltage withstand tests on assets with network voltages as high
as 132 kV.
To be able to better support its german customers b2 electronic GmbH is present with a subsidiary in cologne since 1st October 2012 in Germany.
Extension of our product range with PD and TD diagnostics systems.
Additionally, b2 presents once again the smallest VLF hipot tester worldwide "HVA28TD".
The new generator provides an integrated tan delta measurement unit.
Hence, both innovations complement each other in the field of cable diagnostics.
To improve operative processes, the company is restructured and divided into the business divisions b2 High-Voltage and b2 telemetry.
Revision and extension of the quality management according to the ISO 9001 standard. After a successful certification audit obtainment of an EN ISO 9001 certificate.
An important milestone in the corporate history is the start of a company-related education of employees within the scope of apprenticeship training.
Development and launch of the worldwide smallest portable oil tester “BA75”, for on-site transformer oil testing.
Extension of the VLF generator family by the product „HVA30-5“ for higher currents and „HVA60“ for higher voltage.
Entry into the field of cable diagnostics by development, patent and launch of the tangent delta measurement system “TD30”. The system is for measuring the dissipation factor of medium voltage cables.
Development of the smallest VLF hipot tester worldwide, the „HVA30“.
In preparation for its launch, manufacturing capacity is expanded and a state of the art high voltage test field is installed.
Launch and fulminant market introduction of the „HVA30“, which comes together with analysis software and comprehensive accessories and is presented as a complete 0.1Hz VLF test system for medium voltage cables.
Development of a first own product line in the field of telemetry and measurement data acquisition named “DCS”.
In the same year the DCS product line is launched with the result of a successful market introduction. From the very beginning, the product line is also manufactured by b2 itself.
The b2 electronic GmbH is founded by the managing partners Ing. Rudolf Blank and Ing. Stefan Baldauf.
Development and manufacturing services are offered and several projects for well-known electronic companies in Austria and Switzerland are implemented.
Prior to that, the two thoroughbred technicians together gained dozens of years of development experience
