Hastings 6799-1 Battery Powered Hot Stick Tester

  • Testing can be done right at the job site

  • Lights have been added to aid with visual inspection when testing

  • Three hour battery life. Rechargeable batteries can be swappable.

  • Complies with OSHA regulations for hot stick testing (1910.269)

  • Dual range selector gives the operator the actual leakage values down to micro-amps

  • Portable tester is lightweight and powered by standard 115VAC

  • High voltage applied simulates either 75,000 volts/ ft for ‘wet’ testing or 100,000 volts/ ft for ‘dry’ testing

  • Any fiberglass tool not meeting the required leakage values should be removed from service and examined  more thoroughly to determine the cause of the leakage and its suitability for service

  • Should any of the tools tested not meet the required leakage values of the Hot Stick Tester, restoration to acceptable leakage values is possible by using the proper cleaning aids and products

  1. Select either the “WET TEST” or  “DRY TEST” position on the switch appropriate to the type of test you  intend to perform.
  2. Rotate the “ZERO” knob until the meter indicator is aligned with the zero position on the display.
  3. For ‘Wet’ Test, spray the entire stick with DISTILLED water to thoroughly wet the surface. Spray the water uniformly on the pole until droplets just begin to drip from the bottom surface. 
  4. Move in six inch increments along the length of the stick.

Wet Test Results: Current industry standards require a  stable or decreasin greading which  would also eliminate flashovers. Our recommendation is that no readings over 75 micro Amperes are acceptable  for the wet test. This is more stringent than the current industry standards and is well below the level where flashover or unstable readings will occur.
