Alternative versions are available to suit different devices under test. Measurements that can be made include: earth resistance, high-voltage AC ground bond resistance, insulation resistance, continuity, short circuit, functional tests, and much more.

Other features included as standard are test and ramp timer, high-speed and high-precision TRMS test, internal clock with calendar, internal storage for up to 10,000 different tests, and storage for up to 250,000 test steps. Connections are: one Ethernet, six USB, one RS232, one HDMI for a monitor, foot switch operation of the test procedure, programmable audio and visual signal generator, and an integrated 24V DC I/O circuit for connection to ancillary devices such as test covers.

All versions are equipped with a 7-inch TFT touchscreen interface that is clear and bright, with simple, intuitive software to make it easy to setup test programs. Test reports and production data can be printed or stored on a PC, and test plans can be written and edited on a PC before being transferred to the tester via the software.
