Megger takes DC insulation testing to a new level
In response to the growing recognition of the benefits of 15 kV DC insulation testing, Megger, a world leader in portable electrical test equipment, has introduced two new instruments with 15 kV testing capabilities – the MIT1525 and the S1-1568.
Megger tames loop testing
By using a user selectable test current from 80 A up to 1,000 A, the new Megger NIM1000 network impedance meter allows users to make accurate loop impedance and fault current measurements on live circuits, close to the source of supply, even in large electrical installations such as those found in major hospitals and on big industrial sites.
Megger tests substation protection comprehensively
With the new PCA2 protection condition analyser from Megger, it is now possible to test simultaneously all of the key elements of substation protection systems - including protection relay, circuit breaker, DC system, and protection circuitry - even while the system is on-load. The unit captures detailed information about the full protection operation sequence, before, during and after the trip, making it an ideal choice for critical first-trip testing.
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.
New high current micro-ohmmeter works your way
Megger’s new DLRO100 digital low resistance ohmmeters are readily portable lightweight instruments that can deliver a test current of 100 A. They can be supplied with internal rechargeable Li-ion batteries that provide sufficient power for up to 200 manual/automatic tests on a single charge. This makes it easy for users to perform high-current low-resistance testing in almost any location, even if there is no access to a mains supply.
New Megger bridge finds HV cable faults quickly and accurately
Robust, readily portable and easy to use, the HVB10 high-voltage bridge from Megger allows cable and sheath faults in power cables to be prelocated reliably and accurately, even in difficult applications. The instrument, which also has facilities for sheath fault testing and sheath fault pinpointing, is particularly suitable for use on long HV cables, and in situations where pulse-reflection methods of fault prelocation do not give satisfactory results.
Ohmmeter tests transformers faster and safer
With the capability of testing two windings simultaneously, Megger’s new MTO250 transformer ohmmeters reduce the time needed for testing by up to 50% compared with conventional instruments, making them an ideal choice for field and factory testing of current transformers, potential transformers and power transformer windings. The new testers also incorporate a comprehensive range of safety features to protect the user and the asset under test.
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.
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.
Safely check for live circuits with Megger's new two-pole tester
Compact, convenient and versatile, Megger’s new TPT320 two-pole tester provides electrical contractors with a safe and reliable way of checking AC and DC voltages from 12 V to 690 V. Designed from the outset with safety in mind, the new tester not only has a CAT IV 600 V safety rating in line with EN 61010-1:2010, it also complies fully with the recently introduced EN 61243-3:2010 standard that specifically covers the safety of two-pole voltage testers.
