220015 Biddle HiPot

The 220015 is a HiPot from Biddle. HiPot, or high potential, is a class of electronic test equipment used to verify electrical insulation. Engineers use HiPot-testing instruments on cables, wires, circuit boards, appliances, electric motors, and transformers. As a product ages, its insulation may break down and result in current flow leakage. HiPot testers keep engineers safe from current leakages by detecting gaps and defects in the electronic device. Dielectric Testers, Insulation Testers, and Megohmmeters are similar to HiPot testers. Popular manufacturers include Biddle, Megger, Fluke, Associated Research, Quadtech, Instek, and Slaughter.

The Biddle 220015 dielectric test sets measure leakage current while applying a DC voltage at or above the insulation system’s operating level. This measurement aids in determining the insulation system’s ability to withstand overvoltages such as lightning strikes and switching surges.
