FAQs - Hipot Testers
What is the function of a Hipot tester?
The hipot test is used to determine whether the ground wall can handle an over-voltage situation. An over-voltage is a voltage higher than the peak operating (line-to-line) voltage of the device under test (DUT).
Can we measure Insulation resistance along with hipot?
Yes some of the models come with multiple features like Insulation resistance, ground bond, leakage current measurement along with ac and dc hipot tests.
Can we control the tester with software?
Yes, you can order the QT enterprise software and use it to control the instrument, store data etc. Instruments comes with RS 232 and GPIB ports.
Do you have an AC-hipot tester?
Yes we have AC hipot testers up to 10kv. Our hipot testers can do a combination of ac and dc hipot tests.
My test requirement is for Multiple Test Points. Can I do that with your tester?
Vitrek hipot testers have the ability to directly control up to four 64 channel HV scanners, right out of the box. That is up to 256 test points and using a PC with Vitrek’s QuickTest Pro software you can expand the count up to 640 test points. The HV Switching System of choice is the Vitrek 964i which can hold eight 8 channel switching cards – available in 7, 10 & 15 KV ratings. The 964i also has switching cards to handle routing up to 40 amp ground bond currents.
Do you offer test enclosures along with the tester?
Yes we offer various sizes of test enclosures which are specifically designed to work with our hipot testers. We can provide an offer for the same depending on the size of your DUT.
How do we calibrate the hipot tester?
The instrument comes with a factory calibrated NIST certificate. You can get it annually calibrated at any NABL accredited laboratory or send the instrument to Globetek for calibration.
How reliable is Vitrek?
Vitrek testers are very reliable. They are built for continuous and long-lasting use. When maintained well these testers can serve for more than a decade without any issues.
Do you provide after sales service?
Yes, we have a service lab and also stock the necessary spares and consumables.
After placing an order, when can I expect the delivery?
You can expect the delivery in three to four weeks.
Is there a minimum number of items that should be ordered, or can I order a single piece?
There is no minimum order as such. You can order a single piece or multiple quantities as per your requirement.
How do I choose between v7 and 95x model?
The V7x series is capped at 5kv AC/DC whereas the 95x series can go upto 11kv. Do let us know your requirements or details of your project, and we can help you choose the right one.
