Working on your own? Need some technical advice? Don’t know where to turn? The technical team at Megger answers the latest technical query from end users.
I OFTEN SEEM TO BE WORKING ON INSTALLATIONS WHERE CIRCUITS ARE EITHER NOT LABELLED AT ALL OR THE LABEL IS ILLEGIBLE. AS A RESULT I WASTE A LOT OF TIME TRYING TO WORK OUT WHICH FUSE OR BREAKER IS PROTECTING THE CIRCUIT I’M WORKING ON. CAN YOU HELP?
Megger’s new MFL205 fuse locator has been developed specifically to solve this problem! It consists of two parts: a transmitter and a separate handheld receiver. To use it, all you do is connect the transmitter to the circuit you’re working on, and then sweep the receiver over the fuses or breakers in the distribution board. When you come to the fuse or breaker protecting the circuit you’re interested in, the receiver will give you audible and visible indications. Receiver sensitivity is automatically adjusted to give the best results, so pinpointing the right fuse or breaker is easy. The transmitter uses industry-standard 4mm connectors. Black and red crocodile clips are supplied as standard, with BS 1363 and Shuko (Type F) socket adaptors available as optional accessories. You can use the MFL205 fuse locator on 110 V or 230 V circuits, and it has a CAT III 300 V safety rating. It’s a useful addition to your kit that will save you a lot of time and frustration!
