The purchase order for the hipot (RXS Series), hipot plus insulation resistance (DXS Series), and safety testers (SXS Series), must be received by November 30, 2015.

The complete $1 offer includes two high-voltage probes, one safety lamp, additional memory to store 10 to 30 additional set-ups, Winpass MX control software, and a two-year warranty.

The value of these items combined is equal to $2,100.

As more products are electrified, electrical safety engineers and quality personnel must test them. These engineers are tasked with verifying that the product designs and final manufactured products are safe when the end user powers them up.

There are many standards, from bodies such as UL, IEC, CE, and CSA, that can describe how the tests are to be performed, and the acceptable results. Users are looking to see that ground connections are verified, prove that no wire or components can conduct electrical energy back to the user, and that all components are well insulated. Major areas of use include medical devices, automotive components, cables and wires, consumer electronic devices, and materials.

The XS Series includes a range of electrical safety testers that combine a hipot device test plus insulation resistance test, ground bond test, and line-leakage test.

The hipot tester range is dedicated to performing dielectric withstand test on materials, components, subassemblies, and finished products with a DC or AC high voltage line, each according to the specific safety testing standards.

The XS Series varies in price from $3,995 to $8,495. For $1 the customer will also receive two high-voltage probes, one safety lamp, additional memory, Winpass MX control software, and a 2-year warranty.
