High Voltage (HiPot, Dielectric Withstand)

Hipot test or also called Dielectric Withstand test verifies that the insulation of a product or component is sufficient to protect the operator from electrical shock.

In a typical Hipot test high voltage is applied between a product’s current carrying conductors and for instance its metallic chassis.

Hipot equipment measure extremely low currents like from microamps to milliamps.
