Hipot testers (continuity test/dielectric withstand test) are used as a production line test which is recognized by safety agencies worldwide as a valid criterion of safe assembly of end-use equipment. The test ensures that the primary circuit power and ground conductors were properly wired and connected for safe operation. It also applies a high-voltage potential between power and ground conductors to make sure that no unintentional leakage or arcing paths exist between power and ground. The test consists of a ground continuity check, a leakage current check and a high voltage check. It is non-destructive to the equipment under test, and can be accomplished in a short time.
Routine testing and calibration are recommended for hipot testers to maintain the specifications of the hipot tester.
