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.
WHEN I’M TESTING RCDS, I REALLY LIKE THE CONVENIENCE OF AUTOMATIC TESTING BUT NOW THAT THE REQUIREMENTS HAVE CHANGED, I FIND IT ANNOYING TO HAVE TO GO THROUGH THE FULL SEQUENCE OF TESTS EVERY TIME WHEN I ONLY NEED SOME OF THEM. IS THERE ANYTHING THAT CAN BE DONE ABOUT THIS?
There is if you’re using the new Megger MFT-X1 tester. This has an RCD test configurator that lets you choose which tests are included in the automatic sequence. The tests available are 0.5 x I, 1 x I and 5 x I at 0º and 180º, and also a ramp test. With the configurator, which is easy to use, you can set up your own automatic test sequence. The 1 x I test always has to be included, but you can choose to include or omit any of the other tests to suit your own requirements. Never again will you have to waste time while the instrument carries out tests you don’t want. This isn’t the only way that the MFT-X1 saves you time and trouble. For example, how about loop tests on ‘quiet’ circuits in as little as seven seconds?
