Diagnostic Insulation Testing Catalogue
Megger invented insulation testing before the beginning of the 20th century and has continued to lead the market in innovation and technological advancement. So, why did we develop a 10 kV model when all other suppliers stopped at 5 kV? The answer is in the IEEE standards. Megger developed a 10 kV unit to meet the new testing recommendations outlined by the IEEE. Megger has offered a 10 kV insulation resistance tester since 2001. In March 2000, The IEEE-SA Standards Board approved a revision to IEEE Std 43-1974. The ¿IEEE Recommended Practice for Testing Insulation Resistance of Rotating Machinery,¿ Std 43-2000, emphasizes the need for upgrading current practices to accommodate changes and improvements in insulating materials and the value of higher voltage testing that reveals otherwise hidden flaws.
