Generates a spark at a high voltage and frequency, used to detect pinholes and vacuum leaks. Designed for heavy duty use, with a metal power control unit source which separates the input circuits from the high voltage coil in the handle, providing cooler operation, for longer intervals of use It The control circuit is electronic which also affords more precise voltage control. This lends itself to calibration when the application calls for it.
Key Features and Operating Characteristics:
It has a 7-position high voltage control switch, which is part on an electronic circuit, making its output more precise and repeatable. Circuitry is fused with ON/OFF switch, and isolating transformer for added safety protection. The metal control unit has a carrying handle and non-skid rubber feet. The High Voltage Probe is made of durable plastic, with a 6 ft. cord. A certificate of calibration is optional, furnished upon request.
Output voltage is adjustable from 20,000 to 50,000 in 11 steps.Output frequency is 500 kHz. Output current is approximately 0.1 mA maximum. Separate models operate from either 115 or 230 VAC, 50/60 Hz. Overall dimensions: 7x5.5x6.5 in. with 11x2.5 in handle. Weight: 9 lbs.
Key Applications and Accessories:
Can detect pinholes in linings, vacuum checking and related applications, including:
- plastic, glass, or rubber linings, ¼ to 1 in. thick, on metal tanks
- integrity of welds in plastic tanks
- vacuum checking of neon signs, lamp bulbs, pharmaceutical vials, double pane glass windows
- electro-static discharge testing
- lamp bulb and plasma ignition
Accessory electrode included is the 12101 Blunt Tip. Other accessories electrodes facilitate testing larger surfaces, include the 12141 Fan Tip; 4 in. 12401 and 8 in. 12421 brass brush; 4 in. 12121 and 12 in. 12131 T-Tips. For work with glass, the 12111 Spring Tip is useful. Electrode extensions are available to allow access to hard to reach surfaces. These include the 12441 4 ft. and 1244101 10 ft. extensions
The 12701 Peak Voltage Calibrator accessory permits accurate measurement of the output of the Model BD-50E.
