500 VA Hipot Model
Announced today by Associated Research, Inc is the release of their new Hypot® III model 3780. The 3780 adds a 500 VA (5 kV AC @ 100 mA) Hipot model to the successful line of Hipot testers, which already enjoy a reputation in the industry for their reliability and ease of use. With the addition of the 3780 the Hypot III now provides a reliable, cost-effective, and technologically advanced solution for applications that require 100 mA of AC output current.
In addition to 500 VA Hipot testing functionality, the 3780 also provides a feature set that maximizes test efficiency, while providing a safe and easy-to-use tester. The 3780 offers a simple and easy-to-use graphic LCD for quick test set-up and test recall. The 3780 features an RS-232 interface and can be used as a bench top production line tester or easily integrated into an automated workstation. The 3780 is equipped with the patented SmartGFI® safety feature, which is a high speed shut down circuit that provides maximum operator protection. The 3780 also comes with a remote safety interlock that provides manufacturers the ability to interlock the Hypot III into a test enclosure limiting an operator’s exposure to high voltage.
