Hipot tester - Dielectric strength tester

A dielectric strength tester provides a high voltage test enabling checks on quality and current limits defined in international standards.

This high voltage test (also called dielectric strength test, hipot test, hi-pot test, breakdown test or flash test) is made to stress the device being tested with an AC or DC high voltage and check that there is no breakdown or perforation happening. It also checks that insulation distances and distances in the air are considered.
