5220A Associated Research HiPot

The 5220A is a HiPot from Associated Research. 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:

  • Dual Range: 0-6/15kVDC with Current Meter
  • Input: 115 VAC, 60 Hz, single phase, 2A


  • Determine the adequacy and safety of newly installed insulation
  • Determine when corrective steps must be taken to restore windings to a safe operating condition
  • Help predict the useful life of insulation
  • Establish maintenance and inspection programs to reduce failure and extend equipment service life

The Associated Research 5220A DC Hypot tester is used to test new or repaired motors, generators, switchgear, cable, wiring and other electrical and electronic products. It is designed for non-destructive, high voltage direct current testing for both assembly line and field use.
