SCR is a pioneer in Electrical Safety Test Equipment since its inception in 1975. We make an impressive range of customised electrical safety test equipment as per IEC 60335 & other standards. This product is a Customised Hipot Tester for testing Dielectric Breakdown Voltage and Dielectric Strength of Solid Insulating material as per ASTM D149 – 09.
In this test, an AC voltage at the frequency of the electrical utility is applied using simple test electrodes at opposite faces of the solid insulating material. The voltage is gradually increased in steps as described in clause 12 of ASTM D149 – 09.
The SCR Hipot model, HipotMax – Automatic is custom built for this test. It has the necessary system to support High Voltage Application up to 100kV AC. Safety Interlocks & features such as foot switch etc. are provided to take care of operator safety. The high voltage, steps and other parameters can be programmed in the dedicated control unit. The operator gets record of the voltage & test as it progresses. We have a PC based option on the HipotMax like in all electrical safety test equipment from us. The test routines are pre-programmed to support ASTM D149 – 09 so there is no room for operator error. This equipment can be used as a generic hipot tester since all the parameters are programmable using the PLC & timer.
Many manufacturers with factories in India such as Philips tests 100% of their production on SCR ELEKTRONIKS Electrical Safety Test Equipment & Hipot Testers.For all products made by us to test as per UL 746 A, please download this PDF file.
