HI-POT tester

I have posted some pictures from the construction of my new HI-POT tester for testing leakage current in vacuum capacitors, vacuum tubes, antenna switches, HV cables, capacitors for linear amplifiers and so on. Take a look at some of the pictures below!

Wow – great pictures. Do you have a schematic available via email ?? If so – please – would like to have it.

No problem Dick. I can post the LTspice simulation schematic for it. Let me prepare a post for it as soon as possible.

I have now posted the schematic in a separate post. You can also download the LTspice file if you want to simulate the circuit. You can download LTspice here:
