The 8175PL Series DC Hipot Testers offer a 175 kV to 875 kV range in a convenient cascade design. These systems are SF6 insulated with each module individually capable of producing 175 kV at 17 mA. The standard power rating is 3 kW. Low leakage measurement, even with fluctuating line voltage, is possible with the standard 1% line regulation. The design also offers reversible polarity.This modular (expandable) construction favors the use of these portable testers in situations formerly requiring large mobile units. For example, when field testing, each technician can be equipped with one controller and as many modules as routine tests require. Then, for any non-routine higher voltage tests, additional modules may be assembled at the test site. A reusable shipping container is provided for each module for storage and transportation.Available models: 8175PL-1, 8175PL-2, 8175PL-3, 8175PL-4, 8175-5.
