The Quadtech 1870 AC/DC Dielectric Analyzer is both an AC/DC hipot tester and an insulation resistance tester in one unit. For dielectric strength testing, the 1870 can be programmed for test voltage of 0V-6kV AC or DC and storage of the voltage and current at which breakdown occurs. Constant monitoring of leakage current and programmable current trip range (1uA to 10mA) provides essential data for detection of material breakdown.
For insulation resistance testing the 1870 provides a measurement range of 500 kOhms to 2 TOhms at a basic accuracy of 3%. The IR test voltage is positive pole grounded and selectable as 45 V, 100 V, 250 V or 500 VDC with a basic accuracy of 1%. Programmable test time is 1s-999s and current is limited to 2mA.
The 1870 is supplied standard with an IEEE-488 interface and PLC interface for remote control of instrument functions. Safety features include current limiting capability, a high voltage indicator and a safety interlock.
