MIT2500 handheld insulation tester from Megger rated to 2.5 kV
By Renée Francoeur
December 9, 2016 – Megger now offers an insulation and continuity tester that is rated at 2.5 kV. The MIT2500 offers accurate measurements up to 200 GΩ, the company notes.
Suitable for testing cables, motors and generators, this portable device delivers both fixed range voltages of 50V, 100V, 250V, 500V, 1000V and 2500V, as well as a variable range that allows any voltage between 50V and 2500V to be ‘dialled in’.
The MIT2500 offers stabilized insulation testing to ensure test voltages are limited to +2%, a guard terminal that helps remove insulation leakage currents on higher test voltages, as well as live circuit detection and protection functionality.
The tester also features direct access to all primary and secondary test modes, storage and wireless downloading of test results. The MIT2500 includes PI, DAR and timed testing.
