Megger Releases Comprehensive Power Test Overview

With essential details of more than 100 instruments for test applications in the electrical power sector, the new shortform catalog from Megger is a guide for everyone whose work involves choosing and using electrical test equipment.

The catalog, “Portable Test Instruments for Maintenance of Electrical Power Systems” is conveniently arranged for fast and easy reference, and includes photographs and basic information for all of the products featured. These range from high-voltage insulation testers to advanced transformer diagnostic analyzers that use the latest frequency domain spectrometry techniques.

For selected products, including the new Delta4000 12 kV insulation diagnostic test system and the groundbreaking SMRT36 three-phase relay protection test sets, more detailed information is included about the instrument and its applications.

Product information in the publication is supplemented by guidance on key topics that include the importance of CAT IV safety ratings, the safety benefits of DualGround testing, vibration testing as an aid to circuit breaker condition analysis, and ways in which the compilation and reporting processes for test results can be simplified.

The catalog is divided into 16 sections, each devoted to a particular type of test function, and each providing details of the latest Megger instruments that fulfill that function. A few examples of the catalog sections are insulation testing, low-resistance testing, circuit breaker analyzers, protection relay testing and test equipment for IEC 61850 systems.

Overall, virtually all power testing requirements are covered, yet the compact format of the catalogue – it has 40 A4 pages – together with its logical layout and informative contents page, make it easy to find the most suitable instrument for any particular application.
