Analogue 5 kV Insulation Tester
The Megger® BM15 and MJ15 are compact 5 kV insulation testers. They are very simple to use and provide a quick and accurate reading of insulation resistance. The instruments use an analogue display with a maximum reading of 20 GΩ. The BM15 is powered by batteries. The MJ15 has an additional hand-cranked generator.
The instrument operation is extremely simple. A voltage range enables measurement of a.c. or d.c. conductor potential. Four test voltages are available at 500 V, 1 kV, 2,5 kV and 5 kV. A choice of push buttons is supplied; a locking button simplifies long term testing, or a nonlocking version is preferred for maximum safety.
A bezel allows a scale plate overlay to be added with pass/fail bands for go/no go testing. This is particularly useful for less experienced users and enables a rapid decision to be made.
The new instruments have a choice of power source. The BM15 is powered by 8 x LR6 (AA) alkaline cells. The MJ15 comes with a hand cranked generator plus batteries. If the test button is pressed the MJ15 uses battery power. Otherwise the crank handle is turned to save battery power or for use when the batteries are unavailable.
Both units are built into a rugged case designed for outdoor use. The instruments are also supplied with a soft carrying case, a test lead set, test record cards and batteries.
Safety terminals suitable for locking connectors are used for connection to the test piece. An automatic discharge circuit eliminates the voltage on capacitive loads after a test. The decaying voltage can also be viewed on the scale.
Fused test leads are available as an option for voltage measurement. The instruments meet the IEC1010 safety specification and EMC specifications and are fully CE marked.
