Megger MIT515 5kV Insulation Resistance Tester Details

The Megger MIT515 is a versatile, portable insulation resistance testing device that comes housed in its own protective carrying case.

Billed by Megger as their entry-level insulation resistance tester, the MIT515 is great for testing everything from bushings to cabling, and allows users to carry out resistance testing all the way up to a high threshold of 10TOhms. It can even be used to carry out measurements when the batteries are completely dead thanks to the ability to connect to mains or on-line power in order to operate the system.

The device's rugged protective case ensures the in-built resistance tester is protected at all times, and it also includes a clip-on lead pouch that ensures the supplied test leads are kept together with the MIT515 in between jobs. The case is IP65 rated to protect ingress from water and dust, and the model itself is rated to CAT IV 600V and double insulated for extra protection.

On the front of the tester there is a large LCD screen with automatic backlight that's used for relaying testing information. Tests available on the MIT515 include Timed IR, plus PI and DAR diagnostic testing.
