A 1600 CE Switch 5kV



A 1600 Standard set

  • A 1600 CE Switch 5kV
  • A 1728 Mains cable C13 / Schuko, 3 x 0.75 mm2, 2 m
  • A 1695 Grounding cable, 2 m
  • A 1076 Continuity test lead, 2.5 m, 2pcs
  • A 1645 Multi-functional test cable, TC1, 1.3 m
  • A 1601 HV test lead with test probe, red, 1.5 m
  • A 1602 HV test lead with test probe, blue, 1.5 m
The A 1600 CE Switch 5kV combines all features of the CE MultiTesterXS and extends them to four HV test channels and two 4-wire continuity test channels. The CE Switch could be used in conjunction with several separate connection boxes, containing various kinds of contacting to tested items. The operation of CE Switch is completely controlled by the master instrument, no user intervention during the tests is needed. I/O connections and LEDs for controlling the Autosequence® flow are integrated. Testing of electrical equipment with multiple connection points is supported. The switch recognizes the connected adapter and prevents from applying too high voltages/current to it (protection by HW and SW).
