Norristown, PA. Megger announced it recently donated a low-resistance ohmmeter to students in the Wind Energy and Turbine Technology and the Electrical Technology programs at Iowa Lakes Community College. The DLRO200 is a versatile piece of equipment that provides test currents from 10 A up to 200 A.
David S. Danner, director of USA distribution and sales for Megger, who has been working with Iowa Lakes Community College, said, “The college is at the forefront of new technology and improved electrical service, and Megger is pleased to be an integral part of the education process at Iowa Lakes. We are proud to donate the DLRO200 so that students may get hands-on experience in a practical environment.”
Suitable for testing circuit-breaker contacts, switch contacts, and busbar joints as well as for serving other applications where high current is needed, this portable, low-resistance ohmmeter weighs less than 33 pounds.
Dan Lutat, director of sustainable energy resources and technology at the college, said, “Megger’s outreach with our technology programs is a fine example of putting the tools of best practices in safety to work. They are providing our students with an invaluable experience during their training.”
Doug Zemler, Electrical Technology program coordinator, said, “Megger and other industry leaders are a great asset to our program. They ensure that our students are getting their hands on some of the best equipment on the market. Only with access to such equipment can we truly teach our students all the knowledge they need to become highly-qualified professionals.”
