Electronical Safety Testers – Unbeatable Quality and Price
Ensure product quality and safety with high quality test equipment. Westek Electronics offer the V60 series from Vitrek, a range of electronical safety testers in an affordable price range.
Australia has a strict products liability regime modeled on the EC’s Product Liability Directive. Manufacturers are responsible for ensuring their products are safe to use and liable for any damage caused by product faults. These restrictions are set in place to ensure that the product meets the minimum safety requirements and that damage claims can be limited.
Ensure your product is safe with high quality test equipment
Electrical safety test equipment can be broken down into two groups; design or type tests and routine production line tests. In this article, we will talk specifically about production line testing.
A production line test helps ensure a product is safe before it is approved. One of the most used tests is the Hipot test. It is designed to stress the insulation of a product far beyond what it would encounter during normal operation. The purpose of a Hipot test is to check for excessive leakage flow through a product’s insulation. High voltage is applied from the main input lines to the chassis of the product in order to look for insulation breakdown. The Hipot test can be performed using either an AC or a DC voltage.
The Hipot test can also be used to detect material and workmanship defects, such as small gap spacings between current carrying conductors and the ground. When a product is used under normal conditions, these gaps can create dangerous situations for users. Environmental factors such as humidity, dirt, vibration, shock and contaminants can close these small gaps and allow current to flow. That’s why it’s essential that these defects are corrected before approving the product. No other test can discover this type of defect as well as the Hipot test.
