GUARDIAN 6000 QuadTech HiPot

The GUARDIAN 6000 is a HiPot from Quadtech. 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 Guardian 6000 is five instruments in one providing AC HiPot, DC HiPot, Insulation Resistance, Leakage Current and Ground Bond measurements from a single test connector in one versatile instrument. This provides a cost effective solution to electrical safety compliance testing with maximum flexibility for present and future requirements. Performing all of the electrical safety tests in one box can reduce test time, increase productivity and reduce the number of boxes requiring calibration.

The Guardian 6000 AC HiPot Tester performs AC dielectric testing (HiPot) over the voltage range from 50V to 5000 VAC RMS. The maximum leakage current of 40mA RMS makes the Guardian 6000 ideal for testing devices with high leakage currents such as power supplies which have large filter or “Y” capacitors for noise reduction.

The Guardian 6000 DC HiPot Tester voltage range for DC dielectric testing is 50V to 6000 VDC with a resolution of 1V. The maximum current leakage is 20mA which allows quick charging of capacitive devices. A quick discharge of the device when the measurement is complete, also minimizes test times. Leakage currents can be monitored down to 0.1μA.
