KEY FEATURES & BENEFITS OF HypotPLUS II 1. No load setup of trip current and output voltage. This provides the operator with an easy and safe way to set trip currents and output voltages since parameters are set without the high voltage activated. 2.Storage of up to 10 different test programs. A real benefit for manufacturers that test different products. This makes it possible store all the various test parameters required and quickly recall them for each of the different products that needs to be tested. Program memories can also be accessed through the remote control (PLC) port so that a manufacturer can quickly toggle through the various programs without going into the set up menu. All parameters for the setups can be adjusted through a simple menu driven program by using quick access front panel keys. The easy to follow setup screens ensure that the operator correctly sets up all test parameters. Tamper proof front panel controls. This makes it possible to limit user access to the setup screens so that only authorized personnel with a security password can change test parameters. Passwords are programmable, this ensures that the required test parameters can not be tampered with. Line and load regulation. This system maintains the output voltage to within 1% from no load to full load and over the line voltage range to ensure that test results remain consistent and within safety agency requirements.. Posi-Test current sensing system. This capability makes it possible to ensure that a test item was properly connected since the HypotPLUS II can be set to monitor minimum and maximum levels of current during a hipot test. The LCD display allows monitoring of current down to 50 microamps AC and 20 microamps DC. Many tests only allow a very low level of acceptable leakage current. Electronic ramp and dwell settings. The electronic ramp control helps keep test results consistent as well as reduces damage to sensitive products by providing a method to gradually bring up the test voltage and eliminate high voltage spikes. The dwell timer also has a count down feature so the operator can clearly see how much time is left on a test. 9.PLC remote inputs and outputs. The standard 9 pin interfaces provide outputs for Pass, Fail, and Test in Process. Inputs include Test, Reset and Program Select. This gives the user all the basic remotes required to configure the HypotPLUS II through simple PLC relay control. 10. Front panel LCD displays test parameters and results. A front panel LCD allows the operator to monitor the test. The display holds the results after a test item failure so that the operator can easily review the test results. Indications of short, breakdown, low fail, high fail, arc fail and continuity failure are clearly displayed. 11. Maximum output current 20 milliamps AC and 6 milliamps DC. This makes this instrument a true hipot tester with enough output current to test capacitive loads in AC mode and allows the instrument to comply with the UL 120ohm requirements. 12. Digitally controlled arc detection system. Many tests require the monitoring of arcing levels even if they do not exceed the maximum trip current level. HypotPLUS II allows the operator to select whether low level arcs should be detected and provides the operator with the ability to digitally select and program multiple sensitivity levels. This makes HypotPLUS II flexible enough to test any product. K 13. Software calibration control. HypotPLUS II is calibrated through the front panel keypad. All calibration information is stored in non-volatile memory. This allows HypotPLUS II to be completely calibrated without removing any covers and exposing the technician to hazardous voltages. 14. User selectable output voltage frequencies of 50 or 60 hertz. HypotPLUS II was designed for the global market. This feature makes it simple for the user to select the output frequency in the AC hipot mode so that products can be tested at the same frequency they will be used at. 15. Output voltage fine adjustment. To make HypotPLUS II usable in all types of applications, the operator can manually bring the voltage up or down in 10 volt increments by simply pressing the up and down arrow keys. This makes it very easy to adjust the output voltage even while HypotPLUS II is in the dwell mode so you can analyze test results at different voltages. 16. Built-in Continuity test mode. HypotPLUS II meets ground continuity test requirements called out by UL and other safety agencies. 17. Flashing high voltage indicator. A flashing LED located directly over the high voltage terminal clearly indicates when high voltage is active to provide maximum operator safety. 18. Easily configurable into an automated test system. HypotPLUS II comes standard with rear output connectors and rack mount handles to make it simple to build into an automated system. 19. Comes complete with a test box for products terminated in a line cord. The standard US style receptacle box allows easy testing of hipot and continuity on line cord terminated products. As an additional benefit, termination boxes are available for testing products with line cords configured for other countries.
