Device Tests High-Voltage DC Leakage

HD's new PT-5000W high-voltage DC leakage tester is a general-purpose, dual-voltage leakage tester designed to test primary distribution voltage or secondary voltage equipment for faults or high leakage currents.

The PT-5000W can only be used on cables or equipment that have been verified to be de-energized and discharged.

The test voltage can be set by the user to either 500 VDC or 5,000 VDC. The portable PT-5000W can be used to check for leakage on cables, transformers, capacitors, joints, terminations, insulators, etc.
