Product Information

5 and 15 KV Dielectric Test Sets

Model 220015, 15 kV

  • Continuously variable test voltage

  • Rugged field construction

  • Compact and portable

The Biddle Dielectric Test Sets measure leakage current while applying a dc voltage at or above the insulation system's operating level. This measurement aids in determining the insulation system's ability to withstand overvoltages such as lightning strikes and switching surges.

DC vs AC High-Potential Testing

Direct current high-potential testing provides several advantages over alternating current. Direct current test equipment uses far less power, provides fast charging of highly capacitive test samples, can be easily transported to the test site and costs less. Additionally, the dc test can detect incipient breakdown without the possibility of damage to good insulation.
