Withstanding voltage, insulation and grounding resistance (Ground Bond) are the test functions of the electric safety tester. Among them, the withstanding voltage test is a required test item for electrical equipment before leaving the factory.
Although these tests are widely applied, many engineers still have some questions that they seem to have answers but actually they don't. In this application white paper, we have complied the ten most frequently asked questions and explored the answers to these questions from the fundamentals.
The ten questions are:
In addition to these ten frequently asked questions, due to the safety hazards of high-voltage instruments (instruments used for insulation resistance measurement or withstanding voltage test), IEC has formulated the latest regulations for high-voltage instruments IEC-61010-2-034 to ensure the safety of engineers while using the instrument. This white paper will also discuss these safety hazards and the countermeasures of instrument manufacturers, so that you can safely complete the tests when analyzing insulation materials or conducting production testing. Finally, we will provide effective suggestions for the test plans from R&D to production testing, as well as equipment deployment.
