Socket & See MFT5000 Test Sequences:

Insulation Testing - Selectable ranges 250V / 500V and 1000V.  The current and voltage are measured and the external resistance calculated and displayed.

Loop Testing - High current 2 wire test mode enables the user to test the true impedance of both the Line-Neutral Loop and the Line-Earth loop and therefore to establish both the PSC (prospective short circuit current) and the PFC (prospective fault current) for the installation.

No trip 3 wire test mode generates a current that is too low to trip an RCD on an otherwise healthy circuit.  The No Trip test is a 3-wire test that also checks the Live, Neutral/Earth conductors are correctly connected before running the loop test.

PFC / PSC - Result displayed by pressing the PFC / PSC button after a loop test (High Current and No Trip).

RCD Testing - Individually selectable 30mA / 100mA / 300mA and 500mA (Type AC/A) and 100mA / 300mA (Type ACS / AS).

30mA Auto test - The unit will conduct all six required tests at a single touch of a button. Then when the RCD under test “trips” reset the RCD and continue to do so until the test procedure is complete. Clear PASS / FAIL indication provided on screen.

Ramp Test - Gradually increases the fault current and identifies the level of additional leakage at which the RCD trips. Useful for diagnostic testing of circuits where nuisance tripping is a problem and helps to identify the difference between an over sensitive RCD and excessive leakage from poor insulation, or equipment with high leakage.

Phase Rotation - During phase rotation measurement the amplitudes and phase angles of the three inputs L1 L2 L3 are checked against limits, allowing for mild unbalance conditions. The indication 1-2-3 is displayed for normal rotation (L2 lags L1) and 3-2-1 for reverse rotation (L2 leads L1).

Display of Phase rotation is Automatic when all three tests leads are connected to the 3 phase supply.

The MFT5000 will display .1 .2 .3 or .3 .2 .1 depending on the direction of phase rotation.

Socket Testing - Perform a quick and easy check of a sockets wiring condition.

Polarity Test Pad - Test for and identify rare reverse polarity (Live ‘Phase’ to earth/neutral and earth/neutral to Live ‘Phase’. A potentially dangerous condition that conventional loop testers may not highlight.

Continuity Test Establish the resistance of the circuit under test. Lead null function for fast and accurate measurement.

Technical Specification for: Socket & See MFT5000 Multifunction Tester




Excellent piece of kit at a great price

We purchased a number of these testers for our company due to the brand we usually use being out of stock for some time. We are really impressed by the ease of use of these testers and their affordability. The hands-free function is really useful and the colour display is easy to read in bright sunlight. The leads don't seem to tangle like the testers we were previously using and the carry cases are nice and robust.

For a budget tester these have the same functions as a model 3 times the price.

Excellent product! Thank you Socket & See, and Acutest.
