Testing in electrical parameters in an industrial environment needs a specialist tool kit. If you work at an industrial operation that uses electric power in its manufacturing process, work for a service company that provides testing services for manufacturers, or need to ensure the safe and reliable operation of the critical components that make up the electrical system, you need testers that are robust, accurate and designed with industrial users in mind.
Markham, Ont.-based Megger designs and manufactures portable electrical test equipment, and offers a wide range of options to suit these needs.
With more than 20 one-kV models of insulation and continuity testers to choose from, selecting the proper Megger tester can appear an overwhelming task at first. But all the process requires is a little organization. All Megger insulation testers perform essentially the same test in fundamentally the same manner — accurately and reliably. Refinements and added features, however, separate one model from another in application and operator appeal.
Make a list of important or essential features and specifications. This should automatically reduce the choices to a workable number. From that point, personal preferences can easily determine the final selection.
If a one-kV tester isn’t enough, the company also has a selection of five- and 10-kV insulation testers to fit your application. All Megger insulation resistance testers offer the electrician, maintenance engineer and repair technician flexibility, versatility and capability. The five- and 15-kV Megohmmeters are high-voltage, line-operated instruments that can be used on all types of insulation tests ranging from 500 volts to 15 kV.
