FLUKE Australia has introduced the Fluke 1520 MegOhmMeter, combining insulation resistance testing, ac/dc voltage measurement and Lo-Ohms function, in one rugged and convenient tool.
The meter is used for testing insulation in power system wiring and motor windings in addition to offering a Lo-Ohms function for continuity and ground connection testing.
Easy to use with a simple interface, the 1520 provides insulation resistance testing up to 4000Ω, with three output voltages: 250V, 500V and 1000V.
It switches automatically to voltage sensing when connected to a live circuit with voltage over 30V and provides ac/dc voltage measurement up to 600V.
It has a large backlit LCD with analog bar graph and digital display plus a last-reading memory display for insulation resistance and Lo-Ohms.
The fast-responding analog/digital display shows measurement changes graphically. The 1520 also provides an "autodischarge" safety function so the user will not be shocked by residual voltage left on tested circuits.
The 1520 is powered by four C-cell batteries that provide enough energy for at least 5,000 tests per EN 61557-2, and also contains a battery-life indicator, battery-check function and auto shut-off.
It is fully tested to comply with IEC 1010-1, CAT III 600V overvoltage category.
A protective holster, providing maximum durability in the most extreme conditions and easily withstanding a one-meter test drop surrounds the Fluke 1520's rugged case.
The Fluke 1520 MegOhmMeter ships complete with a protective holster, heavy duty 1.5m test leads, large jaw alligator clips, lantern tip test probes, carrying case with accessory storage, instruction manual and batteries.
