If your job involves testing tower base and guy wire insulators or capacitors and other high-voltage components, here's a product of interest.
Fluke Corp. said its 5 kV MegOhmMeter features an incremental ramp function, automatic key parameter calculations and a PC interface.
The 1550B insulation resistance tester replaces model 1550. It provides insulation resistance testing up to 5,000 V and is suitable for installation testing, preventive maintenance and commissioning. It is targeted at industrial electricians, plant maintenance personnel, utility technicians and anyone who installs, repairs or maintains switchgear, motors, generators or cables.
Test voltages start at 250 V. New programmable test voltages are available in 50-volt steps from 250 to 1,000 volts and 100-volt steps from 1,000 to 5,000 volts.
Features include auto calculation of dielectric absorption and polarization index with no setup; better ramp function from 0 to 5,000 V DC for breakdown testing; measurement storage in 99 memory locations; and improved results download to a Windows-based computer using the included Quicklink 1550B software and interface cable.
Retail price is $3,095.
