The Megger EGIL, which incorporates benefits gained from experience with our larger instrument, is intended for circuit breakers with one contact per phase. Smaller and simpler, EGIL is equally versatile – and EGIL's price makes it attractive to small power plants. Moreover, it provides an ideal supplementary instrument for maintenance departments at large power companies.
EGIL is designed to test circuit breakers having one main contact per phase. Its three time channels are connected together on one side. Events at parallel contacts equipped with pre-insertion resistors are recorded and displayed simultaneously. There are two separate time channels for measurement of auxiliary contacts. To simplify on-site hookup, EGIL comes with ready-made multi-cable sets for both main and auxiliary contacts.
Coil currents are measured automatically and presented together with other readings immediately after testing on the display window or via the built-in printer. EGIL is easy to use – a built-in sequencer (program unit) sets the instrument automatically for the next sequential breaker operation.
Intended primarily for measuring travel (motion), the optional analog input channel finds many other uses as well. If this channel is not installed, all associated menu commands are hidden.
EGIL with the SDRM option together with the SDRM accessory enables static and dynamic resistance measurements.
EGIL can also be equipped with an optional USB interface for communication with a PC and the CABA Win™ Circuit Breaker Analysis Software.
