Part of the HYAMP III series of manual ground-bond testers from
Associated Research, the Model 3145 provides up to 40 A of DC
ground-bond test current for alternative-energy and solar test
Model 3145 is designed to help manufacturers comply with international
safety-testing standards, including UL 2202, UL 1703, and IEC 61730-2.
can team the Model 3145 with Associated Researchís Hypot III dielectric
withstand tester to form a complete system capable of performing the
four most common electrical safety tests: AC hipot, DC hipot, insulation
resistance, and ground bond. This configuration provides a single
connection to the DUT, and the two testers can be deployed side-by-side
in a 19-in. rack. Whether used as a standalone unit or as part of an
automated test system, the Model 3145 can be controlled manually or via
an RS-232 interface.
The instrumentís graphic LCD and intuitive
menu simplify test setup and execution. It also furnishes memory for
storing up to 10 DUT-specific test routines. Other features include
4-wire measurement and milliohm offset, electronic dwell, and CAL-ALERT
for calibration tracking.
The Model 3145 costs $2499.
