MIT510/2 Megger HiPot

The MIT510/2 is a hipot from Megger. Hipot, or high potential, is a class of electronic test equipment used to verify electrical insulation. Engineers use hipot-testing instruments on cables, wires, circuit boards, appliances, electric motors, and transformers. As a product ages, its insulation may break down and result in current flow leakage. Hipot testers keep engineers safe from current leakages by detecting gaps and defects in the electronic device.

The Megger 5 kV insulation resistance testers are designed specifically to assist you with the testing and maintenance of high voltage electrical equipment. The case is incredibly rugged and easy to carry, being made of tough polypropylene and achieving an ingress protection rating of IP65. In addition, the model number is marked on both sides of the case for ease of identification in stores or vehicles.

The instrument has a large easy to read backlit LCD display making it equally suitable for use in both bright sunlight and poorly lit environments. Information displayed includes resistance, voltage, leakage current, capacitance, battery status and time constant. In addition, the elapsed time of the test is displayed constantly removing the need for separate timers.

The instrument can test when being powered by the mains or its internal rechargeable battery, a great benefit when site conditions are unknown or long term testing is required.

The controls of the instrument are clear and unambiguous and a “quick start” guide is included in the lid of the instrument removing the need to carry bulky manuals under site conditions.

The instrument is fitted with a guard terminal to enhance accuracy. The guard test lead is included as standard with the instrument.

To further enhance the flexibility of the instrument the MIT510/2 has the facility to set the test voltage in steps from 250 V to 5000 V avoiding the expense of several insulation resistance testers to meet your application needs.

The IR tester is designed to meet the highest safety standards and meets the requirements of EN61010. In addition, the instrument measures the voltage at the terminals and if this is above 50 V then the instrument will display the high voltage warning and inhibit testing. At the end of the test the instrument will automatically discharge the energy transferred to the equipment during the test phase.
