1060 AEMC Insulation Meter

The 1060 is a 1 kV insulation meter from AEMC. An insulation resistance (IR) test, commonly referred to as a Megger test, collects information such as insulation resistance. An insulation meter, or Megger tester, uses an applied direct current voltage to measure insulation resistance, creating a log of the condition of the insulation between two conductive parts. The higher the level of insulation resistance, the better the shape of the insulation. Megger testers enable you to document the performance of insulators, measuring resistance value and testing for leakages. Insulation meters confirm your circuit’s reliability, especially in final checks during new equipment installations. Megger testers are a safe and effective way to test the insulation resistance of your equipment.

The AEMC Megohmmeter Model 1060 is an innovative family of professional 1000V Digital/Analog insulation testers. The 1060 is designed to facilitate testing quickly and accurately by incorporating automatic measurement features and user-friendly functions.

Measurements are displayed on a large dual-display LCD with bargraph for quick viewing of changes or trends. Resistance readings are displayed on the larger display, and a smaller display is used for test voltage at the sample, test run times (mm:ss), or alarm set points – all accessible at the press of a button. A family of visual indicators for safety and information also compliments the displays. A bright blue electroluminescent backlight makes for clear readings in dark areas.

The 1060 automatically provides the DAR and PI ratios directly on the display. User defined PI time intervals may also be programmed. The user may even select DAR or PI functions before the test, and the megohmmeter will stop at the appropriate time and display the results. Test run times from 1 second to 59 minutes are also directly programmable. The tested sample Capacitance is available at the end of each insulation resistance test.

For specific applications and operator or equipment safety, test voltages may be disabled to avoid any errors. An automatic test inhibitor prevents testing on live circuits above 25V. Discharge test voltage may be displayed at the completion of each test.

A memory feature in the 1060 permits storing, recalling and displaying of resistance values taken at user specified intervals during a test.

The Model 1060 has an RS-232 interface and a more extensive memory function, which permits the storage of results in files specific to the device under test. Additionally, it also has a built-in document function, which prints out a preformatted report on a serial or parallel printer. A standard software package (DataView®) enables the user to display graphs and results for complete documentation and reporting. The Model 1060 can also be programmed and run by a PC with this software. This enables tailored test programs, remote operation and storing of information directly into a PC.

The AEMC 1060 is built into a double insulated field case with a detachable accessory pouch.
