The 3159 INSULATION / WITHSTANDING HiTESTER is a
combination insulation resistance as well as voltage endurance tester.
It continuously performs insulation testing and voltage endurance
testing of electrical equipment and parts, doing both tests in a simpler
and more efficient way. This instrument implements all the applicable
safety standards, and is small, light, and inexpensive. It also comes
standard with external I/O for automating production lines.

One Unit Serves Two Functions -Continuous Testing of Insulation and of
Voltage Endurance
● Continuous Testing of Insulation
and Voltage Endurance
In automatic testing mode, the 3159 continuously tests
either insulation followed by voltage endurance (the
ability to "withstand" voltage) (I→W), or voltage
endurance followed by insulation (W→I). In manual
mode it separately performs insulation testing or voltage
endurance testing.
● Stores up to 10 Sets of Test Conditions
● Standards Testing
Contains on-board comparator and timer functions for
determining compliance, thus simplify the testing of all
applicable safety standards.
● Interlock Function
Based on inputs such as a starter signal, enters a state
where output is blocked and testing is impossible, to
guarantee safety such as during automated testing.
Stores up to 10 sets of test conditions for each of voltage
endurance mode and insulation mode, and can quickly
switch among the test conditions. (Save/Load)
Fluorescent Display Tube
The display uses a bright and
clear fluorescent tube.
Analog Voltmeter
The test voltage can be verified
not only from the digital display
but also in analog form. (Only
for voltage endurance testing.)
Danger Light
The warning light flashes
during testing and whenever
there is a high voltage between
the terminals.
External Switch
Start/stop may be controlled with
the 9613 or the 9614.
(The 9613 and 9614 are options.)

Transformer Capacity : 500VA
Two Test Voltage Ranges :
AC 0 to 2.5 or 5.0 kV
● Voltage Comparator
In order to prevent test voltage errors, the timer is
only activated after the voltage rises to the
specified test voltage ± 5% (or ± 50V, whichever
is larger).
(Depending on options, it may be possible to change the
voltage check just before test completion.)
Measurement Range:
0.5 MΩ to 2000 MΩ
● Discharge Feature
The charge on the object being tested is
discharged within the tester. This discharge
function avoids impacting the next test
process.

This tester comes standard with features for automating EXT I/O, RS-232C,
and status out (relay contact output), as well as data management features.

When the output conditions set up by
the dip switches are satisfied (OR

Wide Range of
Functions
1. Pass Hold Function (0: No Hold, 1: Hold)
The pass state is held when it occurs. This is convenient
for verifying the decision value.
➀ ➁ ➂ ➃
2. Fail Hold Function (0: No Hold, 1: Hold)
The fail state is held when it occurs. This is convenient
for temporarily stopping the test process.
Various functions can be specified with the SHIFT + STOP keys.
3. Hold State (0: No Hold, 1: Hold)
This saves the state when the stop key is pressed during
a test in order to unconditionally end the test.
4. Momentary Out (0: Not Specified, 1: Specified)
This function outputs a voltage only when the start key
is being pressed. The start key is effective both as EXT
SW and external I/O.
➄ ➅ ➆ ➇
➈ ➉
8. Interlock Function (0: Not Specified, 1: Specified)
This specifies whether the interlock terminal for
external I/O should be effective.
9. Voltage Comparison Time (0: Start of Test, 1: End of Test)
When the voltage comparator is on during voltage
endurance testing, this specifies whether the comparison
should be done at the start or the end of the test.
10. Insulation Resistance Measurement Range
5. Double Action (0: Not Specified, 1: Specified)
This function starts the test if the start key is pressed less
than about 0.5 seconds after the stop key.
6. Fail Mode (0: Not Specified, 1: Specified)
This function means that hold state can be released only
by the stop key on the main body.
7. RS Command "START" (0: Not Specified, 1: Specified)
This specifies whether the RS command "START"
should be effective.
(0: Fixed Range, 1: Automatic Range)
This specifies whether the measurement range for the
insulation resistance test should be a fixed range or an
automatic range.
11. Insulation Resistance Test End Mode
0 : Test for the specified time
1 : Stop when "pass" is determined
2 : Stop when "fail" is determined
This specifies the method of ending the insulation
resistance test.
