5 kV DC Hipot Tester with Concurrent Ground Continuity Monitoring


Now you can perform safe, rapid and efficient hipot testing and continuous ground continuity monitoring in one
simple operation. The ROD-L Electronics model M100DC hipot tester performs safe and accurate DC hipot and
ground continuity testing in compliance with UL, VDE, BSI, IEC, CSA and other electrical equipment testing
standards. These standards help limit your exposure to product liability claims and risk of producing electrically
unsafe products. In addition, this tester even exceeds these standards requirements by shutting down the test
and discharging the device-under-test (DUT) within two milliseconds after fault detection or test completion in
order to further assure that no serious harm will come to the operator or the device-under-test if a mishap
occurs due to high voltage. This tester also comes with a special front-panel high voltage outlet (rated at 8 kV)
that you can use to connect your devices-under-test to the tester without exposure to high voltage cabling clips.
Clip leads and the safer ROD-L MP21 Test Probe may also be used for testing devices without power cords,
such as motors, testing devices without power cords, such as motors, transformers and PC boards. Contact us
