Megger – a provider of electric test equipment and measuring instruments for electrical power applications, including wind energy – says it has released new 5 kV and 10 kV insulation resistance testers (IRTs).
According to the company, the IRTs are designed based on significant feedback from end users. The new range consists of three models: two 5 kV units (MIT515 and MIT525) and a 10 kV unit (MIT1025). According to Megger, the IRTs have the ability to take measurements while they are still connected to line power when the battery is fully discharged.
The new MIT units feature a lithium-ion battery and two-and-a-half-hour full battery charge time. In addition, the units are capable of continuous testing up to six hours (5 kV) on a single battery charge, according to the company.
