Hi-Pot/Ground Continuity Tester
0-2500 VAC Dielectric and Ground Continuity Tester
Model 566
TUV Certified Hi-Pot/Ground Continuity Tester for UL and CSA Compliance
Hi-pot (hi pot, hipot or flash) testers and dielectric strength testers are typically used to perform electrical safety testing on components and products to insure that they comply with the safety requirements of UL, CSA, TUV and other  standard certifying bodies. 
The Model 566 combines both the Ground Continuity and Hi-Pot tests into a single tester. This is full featured tester, priced right, bringing state of the art technology to the testing of electrical products. Corded, uncorded and components can all be tested with the probe option 40561. Available options allow you test with up to 5,000 VAC or 2,500 VDC.  
This tester performs the same functions as models sold by other companies but at a much lower price and without the complex features that confuse production employees.   

PRICE:   $983.00
An Easy to Use Product at a Practical Price!
Easy to Operate
The push of one button verifies both ground wire continuity and dielectric strength.
Adjustable Output Voltage
Adjustable over the range of 0-2,500 volts AC (up to 5,000 VAC or 2,500 VDC with available options). The output voltage is displayed on a kilovolt meter.  
Direct Reading Leakage Meter
Fault current is displayed on a 0-10 milliamp meter (or optional 0-1.0 milliamp meter) allowing the operator to detect marginal products.
Ground Wire Continuity Verification
Product's ground wire continuity can be selected ON or OFF and verified prior and durning dialectric test.
Test Duration Timer
Test Duration of 1 second, 60 seconds or continuous is selectable on rear panel.
Automatic Shut Down
Excessive leakage, dielectric flash over or ground continuity failure causes automatic shutdown of the output test voltage.
Visual and Audible Alarms
Both visual and audible alarms alert the operator of an out of tolerance condition. The reset button must be pushed to continue the operation.
Fast Response
The tester uses a fast response detection circuit to detect even short duration arcs or breakdowns that might occur. Once a fault is detected, the test circuit opens within milliseconds.
Meets UL's 120K Ohm Test
The UL 120K Ohm test requirement can be verified by using the built-in test button on front panel.
