ADJ Hydro IP Tester for In-House Maintenance of IP65-Rated Fixtures Now Available

ADJ has announced the immediate availability of its new Hydro IP Tester. This dedicated mobile service tool is specifically designed to assess the integrity of compatible IP-rated lighting fixtures, including ADJ’s Hydro Series of moving heads.

The device is intended for use by technicians at production companies, dealers, and rental houses who want to open and reseal the cases of IP-rated fixtures to carry out tasks such as a lamp or GOBO replacement and regular maintenance.

The easily portable Hydro IP Tester is built into a rugged carry case, complete with a storage compartment for the supplied power lead and air hose. It can be used to test the integrity of an IP-rated fixture following routine maintenance by performing both pressure and vacuum tests. This procedure is essential after a sealed fixture’s case has opened before it is again subject to wet, humid, or dusty conditions.

A colour LCD, with six accompanying navigation buttons, provides access to a menu-driven interface for operating the tester, which is both intuitive and comprehensive. Manual tests can be easily set up by selecting the type and configuring parameters for target pressure/vacuum, minimum pressure/vacuum and hold time.

Once a test has been set up, it can be named and saved for quick recall when another similar fixture is to be tested. Alternatively, the unit is supplied preloaded with presets for ADJ’s entire IP-rated fixture catalog, which when selected will automatically set the correct parameters for the chosen fixture type.

Weighing 15.4 lbs. (7kgs), the Hydro IP Tester is portable and its compact dimensions of 16.5” (419.1mm) x 6.5” (165.1mm) x 14.25” (362mm) [L x W x H] make it convenient to store in a workshop or take out on the road. It is supplied with a 3-5 ft (0.9 – 1.5m) coiled air hose with a quick-connect fitting, a threaded M12 brass nozzle with a push-to-connect fitting, two M12 x 1.5 nylon bolts, a 6ft (1.8m) USB cable, a 5ft (1.5m) IP65 locking power cable and a micro SD card.
