V7x Series Hipot Tester
Vitrek’s V7x Series electrical safety testers are the industry’s choice for Hipot testing requirements. Consumer product manufacturers utilize the V7x on production lines for testing up to 5KV safety testing applications. The V7x is equipped with a color LCD touchscreen for ease of programming & use, and sets the standard for price and performance. Compact and rugged, the unit is Made in the USA and meets UL, CSA, TUV and IEC Hipot requirements. The V7x provides unbeatable speed, accuracy, user safety and reliability.
Choose from six low-cost models offering AC & DC Hipot to 5KV, leakage current measurement to 100 nano-amps, IR (Insulation Resistance) to 450GΩ, ground bond to 30 amps and built-in switching. Combine all that with the USB, RS-232 and Digital I/O interfaces, plus a two year warranty, no other Hipot tester can compare.
95x Series Hipot Tester
The 95X Series of Hipot testers provides the power and versatility for your most demanding electrical safety test applications. For production applications above 5KV test voltage, the 95X provides the features and capabilities you need for complete safety compliance.
The 95X features DSP technology to bring you the safest, fastest, most capable, feature-rich Hipot tester available. The 95X Series combines high output power with a range of AC & DC voltage outputs and extremely low leakage current measurement. Then we added a 4-wire milli-ohmmeter with dynamic range up to 100K ohms and an overlapping Tera-ohm class Insulation Resistance (IR) function. Top that off with an available 40 Amp ground bond capability and you can see that the 95X Series is the ideal choice for most electrical safety testing requirements.
964i High Voltage Switching (Multi-Conductor, Multi-Point Hipot Testing) System
Vitrek’s 964i High Voltage Switching System is the ideal choice for automated multi-conductor, multi-point hipot testing. You have a job to do — you have to hipot test an appliance cable at 1800V to ensure that each conductor is properly isolated from every other conductor. You have two choices, you can try to do it manually, or you can use the Vitrek 964i multi-conductor hipot tester to automatically route the HV and return signals to the proper test points.
The manual method is extremely problematic. Slow, error prone, labor intensive, operator hazardous — and don’t even think about recording the test results! The 964i on the other hand, is purpose built to fully automate all of your high voltage switching needs. Choose the 964i High Voltage Switching System for your next multi-conductor testing requirement.
Vitrek offers a variety of power analyzers to meet your specific requirements. Our precision harmonic power analyzer, the PA920, is the most accurate power analyzer available on the market today (0.024%). It is flexible, easy-to-use and provides high performance — at a price that won’t break your budget. Most appliance and consumer product manufacturers utilize power analyzers in their design and development departments to evaluate power usage and efficiency of a new or enhanced product.
The PA920 delivers multi-channel, high-accuracy, and wide-band performance to tackle the toughest energy analysis applications. The PA920’s modular design can hold up to 4 channels of power measurement in any combination of different channel cards.
In addition to the PA920, Vitrek offers a variety of power analyzers to meet your specific testing requirements. Use the link below to learn more about Vitrek power analyzers!
DL Series Electronic DC Load
The DL Series of DC Electronic Load devices are the ideal choice for testing a wide variety of appliance and consumer products. The DL Series helps streamline testing of power sources that are integral to the consumer product or appliance.
The design utilizes high performance semiconductors with high speed, high accuracy, and wide dynamic range of loading from 10 µW to 14.5 kV. The DL Series offers transient and non-linear loading capabilities and sweep feature. The high accuracy (0.035% base voltage and current accuracies) enables use in a wide range of applications from production line settings to the engineering bench.
98X Teraohmmeter/IR Tester
The 98X Series Teraohmmeter/IR (Insulation Resistance) tester is designed to tackle the toughest high resistance measurement applications that most other IR testers won’t measure up to. Consumer and appliance manufacturers choose the Vitrek 98X IR tester in their product development department to ensure their products are meeting their insulation resistance requirements up to 50 Teraohms.
Built upon the same DSP technology that has established Vitrek as a leader in hipot test systems, the 98X devices feature a unique combination of performance features including:
- Multi-Dwell Functionality (multiple steps without having to return to zero between steps)
- High Speed Testing (with dwell times as low as 100 ms)
- Pico-Amp Leakage Measurement (with stable and precise 50 Teraohm IR readings)
- Continuously Variable IR Test Voltage (adjustable over the full output range of the instrument)
- Multi-Mode Insulation Resistance Tests (three test modes – end on time, end on pass, end on fail)
- Capacitance Test Modes (critical for solar panels, cable harnesses and other capacitive loads)
