230425 Megger HiPot

The 230425 is a HiPot from Megger. 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.

Additional Features:

  • AC/DC: 0 to 4 kV and 0 to 5 kVdc
  • Adjustable Leakage Current Trip Level: AC: 0.3 to 12 mA and DC: 0.43 to 17 mA
  • Rapid production line testing to latest UL standards
  • Extra safety features
  • Rugged design for ease of portability
  • Ground continuity check of three-wire devices with high-voltage interlock (AC models only)
  • Front-panel adjustable leakage current trip from 0.3 to 12 mA
  • One-second or continuous testing
  • Automatic failure shutdown, with visual and audible alarms
  • Recessed high-voltage connections
  • Front-panel NEMA 5-15R three-prong receptacle on AC models
  • Zero start/reset in event of failure
  • Meets UL 120-k½ requirement

The Megger 230425 AC/DC High-Pot Testers are designed for safety and ease of operation, and readily adapt to development, maintenance or production testing. The testers feature a front-panel, NEMA 5-15R three-prong output receptacle.

Test voltage is continuously adjustable from zero to full output, with a zero-start interlock. Leakage current trip level may be adjusted from 0.3 to 12 mA by a front-panel knob. Pushbuttons are provided to select one-second or continuous testing, to turn off the high voltage and to reset the instrument.  All high-voltage connections are recessed to prevent accidental contact with high voltage.
