Megger compiles accessories in new Earth Test Kit
By Peter Saunders
March 12, 2019 – Electric power measurement equipment manufacturer Megger’s Earth Test Kit (ETK) provides a variety of accessories in one hold-all case to help complete earth electrode testing and soil resistivity surveys.
The kit is designed for use in conjunction with one of Megger’s ground testers to determine the effectiveness of ground rods, ground grids and connections, by measuring the electrical properties of soil for conducting current and prospecting for low-resistance ground locations.
Each kit comes standard with reels that can be daisy-chained together for extended reach, along with test leads and earth spikes that attach to the reels. Optional items include voltage and current test clamps for ‘stakeless’ testing, attached rod technique (ART) methods and measuring leakage currents.
