Utility testing: HD Electric’s ClearTest Transformer Tester provides quick and easy tests of de-energized power distribution system transformers. It is a handheld device with a single pushbutton that provides a clear indication of open circuits, short circuits, including shorted turns or shorted windings and confirmation that the test results are OK.

The ClearTest Transformer Tester is a completely new design that briefly energizes the transformer and takes a snapshot of the transformer condition by measuring the voltage, current and power factor of the test signal.

Finds transformer defects that include:
• A single shorted turn in the primary or secondary side of a transformer
• Open coils or blown internal fuses or breakers
• Partial shorts including shorted turns, shorted turn layers, coil to core shorts and primary to secondary shorts
• Bad transformer ratios resulting from shorted turns

ClearTest Transformer Testers look both inside and outside the transformer - testing the coil, core and winding as well as between the transformer and whatever it is connected to.
