Norristown, PA. Megger announced it now offers a new insulation and continuity tester designed specifically for the telecommunications and cable testing markets. The MIT485/2TC-LG2 replaces Megger’s original MIT480 tester.

Insulation Tester from Megger Tests up to 500 V

This handheld instrument features fixed test voltages of 50 V, 100 V, 250 V, and 500 V, as well as variable test voltages from 10 V to 500 V. Insulation testing can be performed up to 100 GΩ at 500 V.  A gated access feature to 500 V prevents accidental application of high voltage to sensitive equipment.

The MIT485/2TC-LG2 features a 3-terminal connection for tip, ring, and ground testing. The measurement pair is selected from the new T-R-G button on the front panel, omitting the need to connect and disconnect leads to perform the full range of testing on a cable pair.

The feedback-controlled insulation test voltage of the MIT485/2TC-LG2 is accurate to +2% -0%, providing a more accurate test voltage without the risk of overvoltage damage to the circuits.

The MIT485/2TC-LG2 offers fast continuity testing with a user-selectable test current of 20 mA or 200 mA. Continuity testing covers 0.01 Ω to 1 MΩ without the need for manual range switching.

The unit provides DC and true RMS AC voltage measurements up to 600 V.  It offers plenty of onboard test-result storage and Bluetooth downloading capability. Rechargeable options for AC and charging are available.

With a safety rating of CAT IV 600 V, the MIT485/2TC-LG2 features a redesigned case, back-stand, and 6-cell battery compartment with separate fuse access. The instrument is over-molded for increased protection and achieves an IP54 weatherproof rating.
