The new ground testing instrument family from Megger offers a unique solution to your ground rod testing needs. The complete kit of instrument, test leads, stakes, batteries and calibration certificate are delivered in a tough polypropylene carry case – everything you need to start testing in one kit.
The ground tester is rated to IP54 making it truly an outdoor instrument. The ground tester has been designed to be easy to use – a large selector switch makes selection of 2 and 3 pole test easy with gloved hands – and the design makes the fitting of shorting links to perform 2 pole tests a thing of the past. A large, clear, easy to read LCD display and thumb sized test button again makes the instrument particularly suited to the outdoor conditions of ground testing. In addition to this ease of use, the ground tester also automatically checks the connection and condition of the P and C spike, indicating the status on the display.
The instrument also includes a voltmeter to allow you to measure the ground voltage helping you pick up further anomalies. The ground tester can measure resistance from 0.01 Ω through to 2000 Ω and earth voltages up to 100 V.
To allow accurate testing in noisy environments the instrument is capable of rejecting noise of up to 40 V peak to peak. The Megger digital ground tester is powered by eight AA batteries.
