Megger Ltd., a provider of electric testing equipment with locations around the world, has introduced a new KC series of test leads, which were developed in conjunction with wind turbine manufacturers to provide a solution to the problem of finding reliable test leads that can be used for testing the continuity of lightning protection conductors in wind turbine blades.
KC-series wind turbine test leads are available in a 100-meter version and are equally suitable for use on-site or for use in the manufacturing plant. For convenience and ease of handling, leads are supplied as standard on a heavy-duty cable reel that is fitted with a friction brake to avoid tangles.
The leads are terminated with large Kelvin clips that have been designed to offer ease of use while providing reliable connections needed to ensure accurate and repeatable test results.
Included with each lead set is a five-meter cable fitted with a duplex handspike for probing the lightning receptors on the tips of the wind turbine blades.
