The new ground testing instrument family from Megger
offers a unique solution to your ground stake testing needs.
The complete kit of instrument, test leads, stakes, batteries
and calibration certificate are delivered in a tough
polypropylene carry case – everything you need to start
testing in one kit.
The ground rod tester is rated to IP54 meaking it truly an
outdoor instrument. The ground tester has been designed
to be easy to use – a large selectror switch makes selection
of 2 pole or 3 pole test easy with gloved hands – and the
design makes the fitting of shorting links to perform 2 pole
tests a thing of the past. Using the optional clamp around
the ground rod connection allows the testing of the rod
without the need for disconnection, leaving the earthing
system intact during testing (ART). A large, clear, easy to
read LCD display and thumb sized test button again makes
the instrument particularly suited to the outdoor conditions
of ground testing.
In addition to this ease of use, the ground tester also
automatically checks the connection of the P spike and C
spike, indicating the status on the display. The instrument
also includes a voltmeter to allow you to measure the
ground voltage. The ground tester can measure resistance
from 0.01 ohm through to 2000 ohms and earth voltages up to
100 V. To allow accurate testing in noisy environments the
instrument is capable of rejecting noise of up to 40 V peak
The Megger digital ground tester is powered by eight AA
batteries which are widely available and also give excellent
testing time – the status of these batteries is given bya bar
graph on the LCD display allowing yo to decide when to
change the batteries, before they expire.
The Megger ground testers are designed to meet stringnet
safety standards and are rated CAT IV 100 V.
