White Papers on General Dielectric Testing

A general abstract on the practical differences between these tests and a discussion on the safety and usefulness of each. Specifically written with the manufactured home industry in mind, it is a very good treatise on general dielectric testing.

Comparison of AC and DC hipot waveforms during a breakdown event. Includes scope waveforms for comparison.

An interesting look at how dielectric testers work, what they detect, and differences in how testers on the market detect breakdowns. Is the ability of our testers to detect arcs through insulation a good thing for your application or not?
