PosiTest HHD - High Voltage Holiday Detectors

Article No. 14805

Positest HHD Kit

The PosiTest HHD is a high voltage holiday detector used for detecting holidays, pinholes and other discontinuities using pulse DC technology. It offers a user-adjustable voltage range from 0.5 to 35kV for detecting holidays, pinholes and other discontinuities in coatings up to 780 mils (20 mm) thick. It is ideal for use with a wide range of rolling spring and flat wire brush electrodes. Alternatively, use existing electrodes with industry-standard adaptors.
