The new range of insulation resistance testers (IRTs) are smaller and lighter than previous models yet offer advanced features and rapid charge capability. The range consists of three models; an entry level 5 kV and two fully featured units, one 5 kV the other 10 kV. Resistance measurement up to 10 TΩ for the 5 kV models and 20 TΩ for the 10 kV model.
The Insulation Resistance (IR) test is a qualitative test that indicates the effectiveness of a product’s electrical insulation. Applications include cables, transformers, motors/generators, circuit breakers and bushings. The IR test is ideal for measuring and recording long term stability of insulation over time, a process known as trending. IR tests are temperature dependent and require adjustment to a reference temperature. Storage models offer a temperature recording option.
