Most very low frequency (VLF) hipot testers need a computer onsite to monitor the test results and store them for analysis. However, this can be a hassle especially when you need to bring a lot of electrical test equipment onsite. Wouldn't it be nice if you could send the test results wirelessly so other colleagues could collaborate with the diagnostics? If you want convenient hipot data logging, you might be interested in the High Voltage ADL-1 Data Logger.

The impedance of a battery provides useful information that can be an early indication of performance issues and hidden trouble spots. High ohmic values are often a prompt for further investigation and potentially the replacement of an aging battery.  Impedance is a marker that is especially useful in checking stationary batteries.

DC Hipots and Megohmmeters are fairly common test sets used by test technicians and engineers.  The basic operation for both a DC Hipot and a Megohmmeter is the same; a known DC voltage is applied across insulation.  The applied potential causes several small currents through and over surfaces of the insulation being tested. The total current is measured and the result is displayed as either an ohmic value or as a current value.

Poor insulation can cause serious problems in electrical power distribution. Testing and maintenance programs that include power factor testing of electrical distribution equipment helps to identify potential problems early and to monitor the progression of those problems.  Power Factor testing is an AC insulation test that would be applicable on many types of electrical insulation including the insulating component of cables, motors, generators, transformers, circuit breakers and other power system apparatus.  This type of measurement accommodates planning of maintenance, repairs and replacement of power system components without compromising the electrical system.

Tracing the path of installed wiring using conventional methods like continuity tests can be a hassle because you need to power down the system. You can use a circuit tracer instead to trace wires even when the cables are energized. This saves you time and effort troubleshooting cable problems in electrical systems.

Detecting high resistance connections in and between electrical circuits such as bonding and contact resistance can be quick and easy with a low resistance ohmmeter. The digital microhmmeter will enable users to identify high resistance electrical connections and perhaps avoid the undesirable consequences that they could lead to, if left undetected.
