Customer Testimonial:  THANK YOU !

The V71 Hipot Tester is absolutely amazing!

Saved us hours of reprogramming, like what to put up with using our old Chinese made Quad-Tech Guardian 1000. You were correct; even an old engineer like me could program it very easily, gotta love the touch screen.

My very best regards,
Brett D. Robinson, PhD.

Vitrek V7X Series – No Other Hipot Tester can Touch ’em

For nearly 25 years, an obsessions has driven us to keep improving how hipot testers perform – speed, accuracy, user safety and reliability have been our driving force. Building a better hipot tester is in our DNA – it drove us to successfully engineer the first 4-in-1 safety tester back in 1990 and it has driven us to redefine performance in low cost hipot testers today.

The Hipot Experience has been Redefined

Our goal for the V7X series has been to achieve the unheard of. To provide state-of-the-art
performance in a powerful yet compact multi-function hipot tester – and do it at an entry level price. From our easy-to-use Touch user interface, to its ultra-reliability, high efficiency, fan free design – the V7X provides unrivaled performance. Have we met our goal? You be the judge – compare the V7X to our made in China competitors and see how well American engineering stands up. We build Vitrek Hipot Testers. What’s on your production line?

V75 with Built-in Hipot Switching

For high voltage cable & component testing – choose the V75 with 16 channels of built-in high voltage switching. With the versatile V75, you can test hipot or IR for any combination of up to 8 test points and you can measure low resistance (from .001 ohm to 60K ohms) on up to 8 conductors. All automatically with a single touch and all from a single compact tester. For requirements exceeding 8 points, the V7X can control up to 4 Vitrek 964i 64 channel HV Switching Systems – providing up to 256 channels of Hipot test capability. Simple, fast, automatic multi-point hipot – make the switch to the Vitrek V7X. You will be glad you did.

V7X Test Step Specifications

Accuracy specifications shown are valid at temperatures within ±5C of the calibration temperature. Outside of this range add 10% of the specification per C.
Decrease maximum ACW, DCW and IR voltages by 2.5%/1000ft above 5000ft ASL altitude.
All accuracy specifications are valid at the V7X terminals, and as such do not include any effects due to user wiring resistances, leakages or coupling, or other user generated leakages or interference.
Resolutions shown are for displayed measurements, limits and settings. Internally all measurements have typically 10x better resolution and all limits and settings are implemented with the same resolution as entered by the user. Via an interface, all measurements are reported with 5 digit resolution.
Generally, user settings can be defined with up to 4 digit resolution and a selection of units (e.g. µA or mA) from the front panel; or with up to 6 digit resolution from an interface.
Unless otherwise specified, user terminated dwell/test periods can extend for up to 2 days.

Not all test types are available in all models of V7X.
