The MFT1700 series is a range of 3 instruments for testing low voltage electrical installations to BS7671. They provide all the tests required to complete the necessary electrical certification for industrial, commercial and domestic fixed wiring installations.
The unique modern styling allows it to be operated while stood on the floor, a ladder-shelf or platform, hung around the neck or handheld. Dual TEST and LOCK buttons – one pair at each end – makes the testers easy to operate left or right handed.
Quick to pick up and use, the controls are colour coded to make range selection easy and fast. They also reduce the chance of using the wrong function or range. The large crystal clear backlit display uses the patented Megger digital/analogue arc, providing indication of fluctuating readings while the dual digital readout shows precise values of key measurements simultaneously with the test parameters, such as the output voltage on insulation testing as well as the resistance value in MΩ.
Visible and audible safety warnings are paramount when testing high-energy systems and the MFT1700 series includes full input protection and safety warnings when a hazardous voltage is present. If live voltages exist on a circuit during insulation or continuity testing, the voltage is displayed on the screen.If this voltage exceeds a safe level, further testing is inhibited and a warning beep sounds.
The MFT1730 features internally rechargeable batteries and charger with a charge time of less than 4 hrs, so reducing the cost of ownership. Fully compliant with all requirements of IEC 60364 derived standards including VDE 0100 and BS 7671, the new MFT includes all the latest measurement technology in a lightweight
Two wire non trip loop testing for fast repeatable results
On-board data storage and Bluetooth® download
3-terminal earth test for electrode resistance measurement
3-phase RCD testing for industrial applications with no earth
Phase rotation indication for verification of rotating machinery
Large bright LCD display showing dual parameters - loop resistance and fault current, insulation resistance and test voltage
ISSWWW and Megger
The extensive Megger product portfolio provides electrical test equipment for an exceptionally wide range of applications at any point of the electricity network. From small handheld low voltage equipment such as multifunction installation testers through to high voltage asset test equipment like insulation resistance testers, circuit breaker analysers, protection relay test systems to transformer condition measurement devices.
Megger designs and manufactures portable electrical test equipment in factories located in Germany, Sweden, the UK, and USA. Megger products help you install, improve efficiency, reduce cost and extend the life of you or your customers’ electrical assets.
Established in the late 1800s, the company has been designing and making test and measurement instruments that perform electrical measurements for preventative maintenance, troubleshooting and commissioning for decades. Megger products have supported customers all over the world to improve their facilities’ efficiency, reduce costs, extend the life of apparatus and through trending and analysis, anticipate equipment failure and future performance.
