SC6540 Scanner

The Hypot III series of manual Hypot instruments sets the standard for production line safety compliance testing.

These instruments are packed with productivity-enhancing features and proven safety technology to reduce the safety compliance bottleneck on the production line. All models include basic Continuity test capability for compliance with international standards as well as advanced functions like our patented SmartGFI operator safety circuit and PLC I/O. Interconnect the Hypot III with a HYAMP III Ground Bond instrument to form a complete safety compliance test system. Interested in automation and data collection?
