What is a Hipot test?
Hipot Test is short name of high potential (high voltage) Test and it is also known as Dielectric Withstand Test. A hipot test checks for “good isolation.” Hipot test makes surety of no current will flow from one point to another point. Hipot test is the opposite of a continuity test.
What is insulation resistance?
The insulation resistance is the resistance in ohms of wires, cables and electrical equipment. It is important to guard against electric shocks and avoid equipment damage from accidental discharges. The method of measuring the insulation resistance is to test and assess the state of the isolation (head and body.)
