PID Insulation Tester
Quick info


The PID insulation tester (TOS7210S) is designed based on the insulation resistance tester (TOS7200) to carry out the evaluation of the PID (Potential Induced Degradation) effect of the PV module precisely and efficiently.
Being equipped with the output ability of 2000 V and the ammeter with nA resolution as well as a polarity switching function, the TOS7210S is also applicable not only to the PID evaluation but also the evaluation of the insulators that requires a high sensitivity of measurement. The tester is equipped with the panel memory that is externally accessible and RS232C interface as standard; it can be flexibly compatible with the automated system.


  • Capable of arbitrary setting of the output voltage
    You can set the test voltage that is appliedto the DUT within the range of 50 Vdc to 2000 Vdc(resolution 1 V). In addition, an insulation resistancetest of the electricity/electronic components orthe electricity/electronic devices is alsopossible besides the voltagespecified in JIS C 1302:1994. In the range of 50 V to 1000 V,the output properties are complied to JIS C 1302:1994.
  • Polarity switching function
    You can easily change the output polarityby the switch on the front panel. The PID deterioration is a reversible phenomenonthat may recover after the reverse bias voltage is applied. The polarity switching is a convenient functionthat can avoid a wiring change that connectsto the DUT. In addition, switchingby the external control throughthe RS232C interface is also possible.
  • The output is floating from the ground.
    The output terminal is floating from theground electric potential(*1). In addition, a shield cable is adopted as an output cable (TL51-TOS) . Therefore, it can be measured only an electric current flowingbetween test points excluding the one betweenthe DUT and the ground, and it realizes to conductthe highly-sensitiveand precise evaluation.

  • Analog output terminal
    In the resistance display mode,the voltage depending on the measured resistanceis logarithmically compressed and outputwithin the range of 0 V to 4 V. In the current display mode, the current is output in a linear scale depending on the measured current andranges of measurement (4 ranges). You can analyze the changes or the deteriorationstatus of the DUT by using an external recording device such as the data logger.
