Insulation and Continuity Tester from Megger Tests Insulation of Twisted Copper Cable Pairs

NORRISTOWN, Pa., July 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Megger now offers an insulation and continuity tester that allows users to test the insulation of twisted copper cable pairs. Ideal for use in the telecommunications industry, the MIT410-TC/3 helps identify problems that can arise from exposed wire in services ranging from voice and video to data or VoIP. 

Technical Specifications

  • Offers test ranges up to 100 G?
  • Test voltages to 500 V
  • Fast continuity testing from 0.01 ? to 1.0 M?
  • 200 mA or 20 mA continuity test currents are available

This new handheld unit, which offers test ranges up to 100 G? and test voltages to 500 V, is an enhanced replacement of Megger's MIT410-TC/2.  It provides feedback-controlled test voltages limiting over-voltage to 2%, far below the accepted industry standard of +20%, delivering a more accurate test voltage to circuits or components without the risk of over-voltage damage.

The unit can be used for all etallic and resistive fault testing of inside premise wiring to identify shorts, grounds, cross voltage in multi-lines, as well as voltage measurements in both AC and DC to determine proper levels for line and signaling voltages. 

The tester offers a stabilized test voltage to ensure it remains within tolerance to industry/regulatory standards, as well as a single resistance range with significantly faster continuity testing spanning from 0.01 ? to 1.0 M?.  Continuity test currents from 200 mA or 20 mA are available.

The MIT410-TC/3 features a dual digital readout that displays complementary test information simultaneously.  A digital and analog arc display includes both a digital readout and Megger's patented analog arc to replicate the response of a moving coil display.  The unit provides TRMS measurements for accurate measurements on noisy lines.

This CAT IV 600 V rated instrument offers greater safety when testing at higher voltage levels.  Each tester includes live circuit detection and protection and a fuse warning that detects fuse failure automatically.  The instrument is over-molded for increased protection and sealed to IP54, providing a weatherproof case to decrease the chances of water ingress.
