The 10 kV insulation resistance tester from Megger are designed specifically to assist you with the testing and maintenance of high voltage electrical equipment. IEEE 43-2000 recommends the use of 10 kV for motor windings rated above 12 kV and the Megger S1-1054/2 facilitates this. The case is incredibly rugged and easy to carry, being made of tough polypropylene and achieving an ingress protection rating of IP65.
In addition, the model number is marked on both sides of the case for ease of identification in stores or vehicles. The instruments have a large easy to read backlit LCD display making it equally suitable for use in both bright sunlight and poorly lit environments. Information displayed includes resistance, voltage, leakage current, capacitance, battery status and time constant. In addition, the elapsed time of the test is displayed constantly, removing the need for separate timers. Adjustable timers and limit alarms are included.
The Megger S1-1054/2 can test when being powered by the mains or its internal rechargeable battery, a great benefit when site conditions are unknown or long term testing is required. The controls of the instrument are clear and unambiguous and a “quick start” guide is included in the lid of the instrument removing the need to carry bulky manuals under site conditions.
