Test diagnostics for HV cables in a single system
To maximise both user convenience and value for money, Megger’s new HV DAC300 test set combines withstand testing facilities and partial discharge diagnostics for HV cables operating at up to 230 kV in a single readily transportable system. The DAC300 uses damped AC (DAC) voltage technology to energise the cable and is capable of generating peak voltages of up to 300 kV. It can be used with cable with capacities of up to 8 µF.
Megger finds cable faults fast
Offering compatibility with virtually all types of paired metallic cables, comprehensive dual-channel operation, auto set up for instant use and excellent near-end fault location performance, as well as internal storage for up to 100 traces, the new TDR2000/3 time domain reflectometer from Megger is the ideal choice for rapidly, reliably and conveniently locating cable faults in telecommunications and street lighting systems.
Megger's new PV tester shines!
Designed specifically to aid the installation of solar PV panels, Megger's new PVM210 solar irradiance meter features a compact design which, unlike most other irradiance meters, has the solar detector on the top of the instrument. This arrangement, combined with the useful measurement hold function, makes the PVM210 easy and convenient to use - even with just one hand - when working on a sloping roof or at the top of a ladder.
There's a new MFT on the block!
In response to the fast changing needs of today’s electrical contractors, Megger has launched the new MFT range of multifunction installation testers. These combine the highest levels of safety with ease of use, exceptional versatility and outstanding value for money. All models in the new range have valuable extra functions that have been carefully selected to make life easier and more convenient for users.
200 A micro-ohmmeter in the palm of your hand!
Weighing in at only 1 kg, the Megger MOM2 is 200 A micro-ohmmeter fully capable of testing circuit breaker contact resistance to IEC 62271-100.
Megger makes primary injection portable
While capable of delivering 900 A continuously and 5,000 A for short periods, the new Ingvar primary current injection test set from Megger is readily portable, making it ideal for on-site use, even in applications such as underground substations where access would be difficult or impossible for larger test sets. The design has also been optimised to minimise in-rush current, thereby making Ingvar suitable for use on supply systems with limited capacity
MTO300 Series - six-winding transformer ohmmeters
Megger MTO300 series transformer ohmmeters measure all six windings of a three-phase transformer automatically without changing connections. With test current capability up to 10 A, they provide simultaneous winding magnetisation to ensure fast, accurate results, and auto-demagnetisation after test. And, by sharing the same lead set as Megger TTR turns ratio testers, they make transformer testing even more convenient.
SMRT36 - the smart solution for relay testing
The SMRT36 is a smaller and lighter protective relay test set, and has more output power than any other comparable three-phase instrument available anywhere. The SMRT36 has a unique constant power output, produces a compliance voltage of 50 V at up to 4 A (200 VArms), and maintains 200 VA output power up to 30 A, making it ideally suited for testing in today's installations and legacy plants. Also, with its forward thinking design, the SMRT36 is positioned for future challenges associated with smart grid testing.
Cut the cost of eliminating battery failure
By offering a convenient and reliable way of monitoring the voltage of individual cells during storage battery discharge testing, the new BVM battery monitor from Megger allows failing cells to be readily located. This means that battery performance and reliability can be restored by simply replacing the defective cells, rather than the much more costly option of replacing the whole battery.
Megger's new TDR ends near-end problems
With Megger's new handheld TDR1000/3 time domain reflectometer, locating near-end faults in voice and data communications networks is no longer a problem. By using launch pulses with durations as short as 2 ns, this innovative instrument can accurately determine the location of faults that are less than a metre from the point of connection.
