Megger has been the premier provider of electric test equipment and measuring instruments for electrical power applications for more than a century. That's more than 100 years of providing testing solutions in the most critical maintenance areas, including cable fault locating, protective relay testing and power quality testing. Today, the company's product offering spans 30 distinct product groups with more than 1,000 specific products.
Among its lineup is products for cable testing and diagnostics. Megger offers a full range of solutions for Very Low Frequency (VLF) and tan delta insulation testing, as well as Partial Discharge (PD) detection and mapping.
VLF or 0.1 Hz testing is used on cables as an alternative to DC testing. It is designed to test cables for weak spots in insulation due to electrical trees. Megger’s Cosine Rectangular VLF systems have been developed to test very long cables and meet international standards such as IEEE 400 and IEC HD 620/621, while the company’s PD systems utilize the Damped AC (DAC) method for truly non-destructive PD diagnosis.
Tan delta diagnostics is a great way to diagnose the integrity of the cable’s insulation and health, so you can take measures to avoid preventable in-service cable failures. Powered by a VLF unit, tan delta diagnostics can be used to detect water trees, one of the leading health conditions of MV extruded type cables, and insulation degradation and aging.
All Megger products meet the highest standards for quality, reliability and safety. Its facilities are certified to full operational requirements of the ISO 9001 quality standard, and the company is constantly striving to improve its quality assurance position with input from periodic audits by independent experts required for continued ISO 9001 certification.
