Convenient Insulation Resistance Measurements in the Field with the 212159 Megger Meter

  • Uncategorized

When testing insulation in the field, it is important to have a meter that offers reliability and portability. You do not want to drag heavy test equipment in the field. This can be a hassle if you need to move from one place to another. If you need a portable MegOhmmeter, you might be interested in the Megger 212159.


This Megger meter is a hand-cranked MegOhmmeter that has a built in generator so you do not need an external power supply. You just need to crank the handle when measuring insulation resistance. This is very convenient since field installations often do not have electrical sockets you can use to power your test equipment. The 212159 allows you to measure resistance from 0.1 Ω up to 2000 MΩ. It has nominal output test voltages of 100, 250, 500 and 1000 Volts and a maximum load capacitance of up to 1 μF. This tester is compliant with the IEC 61326-1 standard which allows it to operate reliably in a high EMI environment. This Megger tester is also shielded to reduce the EMI it radiates that might affect other nearby equipment.
