CRITERION AVC-50VA Dielectric Strength Tester

The model AVC-50V is the most frequently used for CSA approval testing. The model has continuously adjustable output potential from zero to 5000 volts to cover practically all the test voltages called up by CSA, Ontario Hydro and UL for breakdown testing. The instrument is equipped with large High-Voltage, Power and Fault lamps, automatic cut-out, and continuously indicating high voltage voltmeter right across the test probe.
