A quick and easy way to check the accuracy of an insulation and continuity meter is by using a resistor checkbox. The ITC8 (Insulation Tester Checker), from Test and Tag Supplies , provides a simple and low cost solution.
The Insulation Tester Checker ITC8 can be utilised to check the calibration of resistance ranges of insulation and continuity meters. The resistance checker box can also be used to verify selected functions of multimeters.
All test and measurement instruments should be checked at regular intervals to confirm that they are providing accurate results (in accordance with the manufacturers published specifications). The Insulation Tester Checker ITC8 enables users to test specific resistances to ensure the instrument being checked returns the relevant values.
ITC8 Resistance values are as follows:
0.5 ohm, 1ohm, 2 ohm, 20 ohm, 200 ohm, 1K ohm, 10K ohm, 20K ohm, 100K ohm, 1M ohm, 2M ohm, 10M ohm
Quick and easy verification with the ITC8
Using the Insulation Tester Checker ITC8 is easy. Simple instructions are included with the unit, and record log sheets are also supplied. The measured values of the instrument should be checked against the instrument manufacturers published specifications to ensure that the device is working correctly.
