Four Functional Tests in One Megohmmeter with the AEMC 1026

by Protec Tech Team May 17, 2016

Measuring the quality of insulation involves checking the insulator’s resistance through the use of a megohmmeter. Acceptable insulator resistance values are typically 1 to 10 megohms, depending on the standards referenced.

Reduce Shock Hazards and Downtime with the Megger 210415 Megohmeter

by Protec Tech Team November 16, 2015

Insulators are designed to resist the flow of current from the central conductor towards the sheath of the electrical component, and protect the components from developing shorts or electrocution of personnel.

Insulation plays an important role in electrical systems. Without insulators, the electricity flowing in the conductors is exposed, which can cause short circuits or electrocution to personnel, and therefore it is important to always check the condition of the insulation to ensure safety and reliability.


Megger MIT525 Insulation Resistance Tester Offers Simplistic Operation

by Protec Tech Team September 01, 2015

The Megger MIT525 5-kV Insulation Resistance Tester offers advanced features and rapid charge capability, with a range consisting of 5 kV and resistance measurement up to 10 TΩ. A key feature of the Megger MIT525 5-kV Insulation Resistance Tester is the ability to take measurements when connected to line power/mains with a dead battery.


For Dielectric Absorption Test Equipment Rely On Protec

by Protec Tech Team August 07, 2015

The ratio of two time-resistance readings (such as a 60-second reading divided by a 30-second reading) is called a dielectric absorption ratio. It is useful in recording information about insulation. If the ratio is a 10-minute reading divided by a 1-minute reading, the value is called the polarization index.


For All Your Insulation Resistance Testing Needs Rely on Protec

by Protec Tech Team August 05, 2015

Insulation is subject to many elements that can cause it to perform at a less-than-acceptable level. Excessive heat or cold, moisture, vibration, dirt, oil, and corrosive vapors can all contribute to deterioration. For this reason, routine insulation testing is necessary.


Rent the Megger 210415 Megohmeter for Accurate Insulation Resistance Testing

by Protec Tech Team February 02, 2015

Insulation resistance testers can be used to determine the integrity of windings or cables in motors, transformers, switchgear, and electrical installations. The test method is determined by the type of equipment being tested and the reason for testing. For instance, when testing electrical cabling or switchgear (low-capacitance equipment) the time-dependent capacitive leakage and absorption leakage currents become insignificant and decrease to zero almost instantly. A steady conductive leakage current flow is reached almost instantly (a minute or less) providing perfect conditions for the spot-reading/short-time resistance test.


Sensitive Insulation Resistance Measurements Call For the Megger 210415

by Protec Tech Team December 31, 2014

The Megger 210415 15kV Analog Megohmeter is a high-voltage, line operated instrument, that provides a continuously variable test voltage for highly sensitive insulation resistance measurements of all types of electrical equipment and power cable.


Megger 210415 Measures Insulation Resistances of Up to 100,000 Megohms

by Protec Tech Team November 10, 2014

A megohmmeter (sometimes referred to as a megger) is an electrical test instrument designed to test extremely high resistances by producing a DC (direct current) voltage. A megohmmeter produces a high voltage, low current DC charge which allows for testing resistances commonly encountered in electric motor winding or cable insulation tests.
