Verify Wires or Cables with Megger Test Equipment

Because insulators take a beating during operation they often deteriorate from stress and the elements. Good insulation can properly resist high current; while defective or failing insulation will carry moisture or dirt that can lower its ability to perform.

Insulation tests help users know whether short circuits or faults exist in cable insulation. Technicians often perform a “Megger test” to check that there is no leakage or defects in the wire.

When you need to verify wires or cables, Megger test equipment is one of the best choices in diagnostic insulation testing today.

Consider these Megger meter models to perform insulation resistance testing for your next project:

Megger MIT525 5-kV Insulation Resistance TesterMegger MIT525 – offers advanced features and rapid charge capability, with a range consisting of 5 kV and resistance measurement up to 10 TΩ. A key feature of the Megger MIT525 is the ability to take measurements when connected to line power/mains with a dead battery.

Megger MIT1025 – provides five preset voltage ranges in insulation test mode, plus a user settable lock voltage range, and preconfigured diagnostic tests include Polarization Index (PI), Dielectric Absorption Ratio (DAR), dielectric discharge (DD), Step Voltage (SV) and ramp test.

Megger is one brand you can count on, and Protec offers for rent, lease or purchase, all the electrical testing equipment you need to get the job done.
