Megger MIT420 Industrial Maintenance Insulation and Continuity Tester
Megger MIT420/2 Industrial Maintenance Insulation and Continuity testers offer CATIV 600 V safety in a convenient easy to hold format.
It is a true diagnostic test instrument designed to measure insulation resistance, offering functions such as TRMS voltage measurement, polarisation index (PI), dielectric absorption ratio (DAR) and capacitance measurement. These diagnostic tests make it ideal for engineers make it ideal for engineers working in industrial maintenance, allowing them to trend motor performance, and give more solid evidence when taking a motor out of service.
The MIT420 mk2 Insulation and Continuity Tester is designed not just for Electrical and Industrial, but with an exceptionally wide range of applications from electrical installations, cable testing, motor testing, automotive, ESD, panel building, avionics, maintenance etc. Insulation testing has been enhanced with feedback controlled test voltages to limit over-voltage to 2%, rather than the industry standard 10-20%.
Continuity testing is now significantly faster, and a single auto-ranging 0.01 Ω to 1.0 MΩ function replaces the “Ohms” and “kOhms” ranges. Retained are the 200 mA and 20 mA test options.
What‘s NEW with the Megger MIT420 mK2 (1004-739)?
