GUARDIAN 20KVDC Chroma HiPot

New
The GUARDIAN 20KVDC is a HiPot from Chroma. 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:

  • DC HiPot Voltage 100 to 20,000V, Output Current to 5mA
  • Insulation Resistance Measurements from 100kΩ to 50GΩ, Test Voltage 50 to 1000 VDC
  • Programmable Ramp and Test Times
  • Fast Cutoff and Quick Discharge of Device Under Test
  • Programmable Hi/Lo Limits for Pass/Fail Testing
  • LCD Display for Menu Programming and Test Results
  • Internal Storage and Recall of 50 Test Setups, 10 Steps Each
  • Front and Rear Panel Output Connections
  • Front Panel Lockout Prevents Changes to the Test Setup
  • Automatic Offset to Zero Out Stray Leakage Current
  • Remote I/O Interface Included Standard
  • RS-232 Interface Optional
  • IEEE-488 and Printer Interfaces
  • Optional External 8 Channel Scanner Optional

DC HiPot Applications:

  • Production or Compliance Testing of Appliances, Wire, Cable, and Other Electrical Products which have High Leakage Current
  • Testing to Safety Standards which Require or Recommend a 500VA Tester
  • Testing of Electrical Products Requiring the Application of High AC or DC Voltages
  • Testing of Transformers, Coils, and Large Horsepower Motors

The Guardian 20kVDC HiPot Tester performs DC HiPot Testing over the voltage range from 100 to 20,000V DC with a maximum leakage current output of 5mA. Additionally, the 20kV tester provides Insulation Resistance measurement capability over a range of 100kΩ to 50GΩ at test voltages from 100 to 1000V DC. The new improved discharge function allows for fast controlled discharge of the DUT.

In all cases, both high and low limits are operator programmable for quick, and easy pass/fail testing. These dual limits are essential to ensure that the device under test is actually making contact with the tester. For consistent testing, up to 50 setups can be stored in instrument memory for later recall. An optional high voltage scanner is also available for testing multi-connection devices.
