SPARK 2000 / 6000
According to the various applications, SIKORA offers Direct Current (DC), High-Frequency (HF) and Alternating Current (AC) spark testers.
According to European standards, openly operated measuring and testing equipment has to be checked regularly. Accordingly, spark testers are tested with regard to the high voltage, short-circuit current and function (sensitivity).
A unique feature of the SIKORA SPARK 6000 HF is the optionally integrated 3-step self-test and calibration system. This includes:
This test is documented, saved in a log-file and can be recalled at any time. For applications where the integrated self-test and calibration system is not necessary, SIKORA offers the SPARK 2000 UL and further devices of the SPARK 2000 series.
The SPARK 2020 DC is a direct-current spark tester, designed for the testing of telephone wires, data cables and mini-coax cables with foam insulation, automotive cables and building wires up to 20 mm.
The SPARK 2000 BS is an alternating-current spark tester for jacketing and insulating lines available in 8 models, covering a diameter range from 1 to 200 mm.
The SPARK 2030 UL is a high-frequency high voltage spark tester, developed for the detection of faults in the insulation of cables up to 30 mm.

The SPARK 6030 HF is a high-frequency high voltage spark tester, developed for the detection of faults in the insulation of cables. The system reliably distinguishes between punctual faults (pin holes) and bare patches.
The sturdy electrode and the electronic box of the SPARK 6030 HF form one integral unit. Directly integrated into the device is a display, visualizing the selected test voltage, the capacitive load and number of high voltage breakdowns. The display is combined with a control panel for entering the test voltage. For production lines without a line computer, SIKORA recommends the use of the SPARK 6030 HF with the processor-controlled display/control devices REMOTE 2000.
