All-New Powerhouse

For nearly 25 years an obsession has driven us to keep improving how hipot testers perform – speed, accuracy, user safety and reliability have been our driving force.  Building a better hipot tester is in our DNA – it drove us to successfully engineer the first 4-in-1 safety tester back in 1990 and it has driven us to redefine performance in low-cost hipot testers today.

The Hipot Experience Redefined

Our goal for the 5890 series has been to achieve the unheard of. To provide state-of-the-art performance in a powerful yet compact multi-function hipot tester—and do it at an entry-level price. From our easy-to-use Touch user interface, high-efficiency, fan-free design – the 5890 provides unrivaled performance.  Have we met our goal? You be the judge – computer the 5890 to our made in China competitors and see how well American engineering stands up.  We build Valhalla Hipot Testers.  What’s on your production line?
