Basic Hipot to Advanced Analyzers, We’ve Got you Covered

Hipot or dielectric withstand testers and analyzers manufactured by Chroma are used for conducting electrical safety tests on electrical components and products to verify compliance with IEC, UL, TUV, CSA, EN as well as complex medical safety testing to ensure human safety and product reliability. From the smallest standard AC hipot tester in the market to multi-test, high feature safety analyzers, we have a solution that’s right for you.
2 Year Warranty
New hipot and electronic safety test instruments (EST) purchased in North America are backed by a 2-year standard warranty.
Hipot Testers
The low-cost Sentry series provides 2 models to choose from. The Sentry 19071 is for AC 5kV Hipot testing and the Sentry 19073 combines both AC 5kV and DC 6kV Hipot with insulation resistance (IR) measurements into a single compact unit.
The Guardian 19052 is equipped for AC/DC Hipot testing and insulation resistance (IR) measurements. The Guardian 19053 combines both AC and DC Hipot tests and IR measurements with 8HV scan channel capabilities. Front panel operation, digital display, and user friendly controls allows test parameters and limits to be set easily without the high voltage activating.
The Guardian 19032 series combines Hipot, Insulation Resistance (IR), Ground Bond (GB), Leakage Current (LC)/AC LC/DC LC and Dynamic Function Tests. Space savings can be up to 50% of production line space, through not purchasing multiple safety test instruments. The 19032 is able to increase the efficiency of electrical safety testing during manufacturing and reduce associated labor costs.

Medical Safety Test Systems
Sentinel II
The Sentinel II system provides fully automatic Electrical safety testing to IEC/EN/UL/CSA 60601-1. Sentinel II saves time by scanning patient connections for leakage current without powering down the medical device. The Sentinel II System can be configured to accommodate Class I, Class II, mains and Internally Powered medical devices with the following configurations:

  • Mains Power supply up to 4000VA, 0~300VAC @ 15~1kHZ
  • Up to 1 B-Type Patient Connection

500VA programmable AC Source: Automatically provides the capability to perform earth (line), enclosure or patient leakage current measurements at different mains voltages and frequencies. (can be upgraded to a 1000, 1500, 2000 or 4000VA AC Source)

CaptivATE software provides the Sentinel II System with the capability to create test sequences, capture data, bar code scanning of device model and serial number, and automatically recall test setups based upon model number. All test data is saved into a database for trending and analysis.


Application Note: Electrical Safety Testing 101
Let’s shed a little light on what exactly electrical safety testing (EST) is and how the various tests are performed. Electrical Safety Testing verifies product safety under simulated fault and/or material stress conditions. The goal is to test the product to its limitations to make sure that it can withstand the electrical conditions – not just the specifications it is built to but also the…
