High-Potential Testers (Hipot)

High-Potential Testers (Hipot)

Hipot is an abbreviation for High-Potential Tester. Traditionally, HIPOT is a term given to a class of electrical safety testing instruments used to verify electrical insulation in finished appliances, cables or other wired assemblies, printed circuit boards, electric motors, and transformers. A Hipot test (also called a Dielectric Withstand test) verifies that the insulation of a product or component is sufficient to protect the operator from electrical shock. In a typical Hipot test, high voltage is applied between a product's current-carrying conductors and its metallic chassis. The resulting current that flows through the insulation, known as leakage current, is monitored by the tester. With high quality Hipot testers, you can ensure electrical components in your facility are working without leaks in insulation. We offer a variety of new and used options on Hipot testers.
