Megger MFT1730 Multifunction Tester Details

Only beaten in terms of functionality by the MFT1735, Megger's MFT1730 is one of the most popular multifunction installation testers on the market. Reliable, easy-to-use and with countless features, this comprehensive tester gives you access to all of the testing procedures you'll need for completing electrical installations safely, correctly and in line with all relevant regulations.

The main difference between this tester and its counterparts (the MFT1710 and MFT1720) is the inclusion of built-in memory. This allows you to directly store measurements on the tester (up to a week's worth of testing results can be stored) and it is also possible to connect the meter via Bluetooth to PC in order to download and interact further with your testing information!

The MFT1730 is packed full of different testing procedures. With this MFT you can measure insulation across four ranges of 100V, 250V, 500V and 1000V, measure continuity at 200mA and 15mA, carry out RCD testing with 1/2, 1, 5 x I, ramp, auto and other modes, test loop (including Megger's unique 2-wire loop test with no tripping), carry out 2 and 3 pole earth electrode testing and you can even measure phase rotation, leakage current and supply!

You can use the Megger MFT1730 absolutely anywhere thanks to its exceptionally-durable armoured casing. When testing their range of MFTs Megger have ran it over in a van, thrown it out of windows, thrown it down stairs and much more to make sure it is as rugged as possible and it passed every single test and kept working with hardly any damage after all of these stresses!

If you've been looking for a tester that does everything you need, you need not look further than Megger's MFT1730.
