The MegaPulse 1.2x50/8x20-12-1 12 ohm is our 12kV, 1kA combination tester, with a 30 second cycle time. It can produce a combination test waveform at 12 ohms from 500V to 7kV, in tolerance with EN 60060.

The tester features grounded outputs, and is therefore suitable for use for unpowered testing only.  The tests can be done with a 30 second or longer wait between pulses.  The 12 ohm tap will be in accordance with the tolerances shown on the Datasheet, link above.

The MegaPulse 1.2x50/8x20-12-1 12 ohm is equipped with a relay allowing switch selected polarity output. Users may opt for computer control via our option TestMinder MegaPulse, or PLC guided operation with our Relay Isolated Control board. 

The tester charges in less than 30 seconds. Sold with a one year warranty and calibrated to NIST Standards. A2LA Cal available at extra charge.
