Designed primarily for testing insulation systems

This is alongside its use as a general-purpose instrument and having the ability to measure the breakdown voltage on electrical plant and components. 


  • The main output on the unit is variable between 0 and 5kVac. The output is rated at 50mA continuously and 100mA for 5 minutes followed by an off time of 15 minutes.


  • The output voltage is metered by an analogue instrument with 0-3kV and 0-6kV scaling.

Range Accuracy

  • 3kV ±1.5% of FS
  • 6kV ±1.5% of FS

The output current is metered by a dual-range analogue instrument with 0-10mA and 0-100mA ranges. The current trip may be set to 20-120% of the selected range in 20% steps.

Range Trip Current Accuracy

  • 10mA 2-12mA ±3% of FS
  • 100mA 20-120mA ±3% of FS

Overload Protection

  • An electronic overload protection circuit is provided on the KV5-100 mk2, backed up by a fuse. The trip current is user selectable, and allows values between 2mA and 120mA to be set. A trip condition is indicated by an illuminated push button and an audible alarm.

Burn Circuit

  • When in the circuit, the maximum short circuit current is limited to 100mA. When out of the circuit, the maximum short circuit current is approximately 2A.

Output connections

  • The KV5-100 mk2 is provided with battery clips for connection to the object under test. The unit is designed to be operated in conjunction with an interlocked test enclosure ensuring safety for the user.

  • Continuously variable output voltage 0-5kVAC
  • Variable trip circuit
  • 2-12mA and 20-120mA
  • Output voltage and current metering
  • Visual and audible indication of test piece failure
  • Compact lightweight instrument
