Motor tester ‘combines all of the functions needed’

18 October, 2019

Megger has launched a handheld instrument that combines all of the functions needed to test electric motors in a single easy-to-use device. The MTR105 static motor analyser provides a full range of insulation resistance tests, along with four-wire low-resistance measurements. It also offers capacitance, inductance and temperature measurements, as well as phase rotation and diode-checking functions.

“Testing motors is a very common requirement, but for comprehensive testing, several instruments are usually needed,” says Megger’s European distribution manager, Simon Wood. “We are very pleased to offer a better solution with the MTR105, which gives users all the functions they need in one convenient and readily portable instrument.”

The instrument has a graphical display and all of its functions are selected using a single rotary dial. It can perform insulation testing at stabilised test voltages from 50V to 1kV. As well as standard insulation tests, it supports PI, DAR and timed testing. The instrument is suitable for use in Cat III applications at up to 600V.

Megger says its handheld instrument combines all of the main motor tests in one device
