Megger MJ15 5kV Compact Insulation Tester
The Megger BM15 is a general purpose 5kV Insulation Tester for electrical contractors and engineers who test machinery, transformers, switchgear, cables etc.
Simple to use, providing quick, accurate readings of insulation resistance; the Megger MJ15 has an analogue display with a maximum reading of 20 GΩ.
A voltage range enables measurement of AC or DC conductor potential with four test voltages available at 500 V, 1 kV, 2,5 kV and 5 kV. A choice of push buttons are supplied; a locking button simplifies long term testing, or a nonlocking version is preferred for maximum safety. A bezel allows a scale plate overlay to be added with pass/fail bands for go/no go testing - this is particularly useful for less experienced users and enables a rapid decision to be made.
Megger MJ15 Key Features:
- Four test voltages to 5 kV
- Dual power supply option giving the best of both worlds
- Resilient mounted analogue scale for robustness
- Voltage range to 600 V indicates auto discharge
- Pass/fail overlays for rapid testing
- Single scale for insulation values to avoid operator error
Megger MJ15 Application:
Insulation is important for the safety of all electrical systems, providing a barrier to hazardous live conductors. Insulation can deteriorate due to the affects of moisture, sunlight and heat. A reduction in the value of insulation resistance can lead to a potentially dangerous situation caused by the dangers of electric shock, or arcing causing fire. If insulation resistance is regularly monitored unusually low values can be investigated before they cause danger, or inconvenience and cost due to equipment downtime for repairs.
