DESCRIPTION
Megger’s range of DC insulation testers MIT515, MIT525, MIT1025
and MIT1525 are targeted at original equipment manufacturers
and industrial companies. The top of the range MIT1525 performs
insulation resistance tests up to 15 kV with a 30 TΩ maximum
resistance and an accuracy of ±5% to 3 TΩ. The MIT515 offers IR,
DAR and PI functions but has no memory functionality. MIT525,
MIT1025 and MIT1525 have a full suite of test modes as well as onboard memory and the ability to stream data/download data to a PC/
laptop.
Instrument productivity is a focus of the new MIT range which
offers rapid charge batteries and operation from an AC source if the
batteries are dead. Rapid charge batteries enable > 60 minutes testing
after a 30 minute charge.
Safety is not compromised on the MIT range with all terminals rated
to CATIV 600 V to 3000 m (5 kV and 10 kV) or CATIV 1000 V to
3000 m (15 kV). A range of 5 kV and 10 kV test leads are available
plus dedicated 15 kV test leads which are double insulated with clips
designed for 15 kV creepage paths. The 15 kV leads are supplied in
a backpack. Depending on local procedures or the results of a risk
assessment, suitably rated HV gloves and other personal equipment
may be a requirement while testing.
The MIT range share dual case design which includes a tough outer
case to protect the tester from knocks/drops and an inner fire
retardant case. The IP rating is IP 65 case closed eliminating moisture
and dust ingress.
An intuitive user interface ensures no lost time remembering how
to use the tester. Simplicity of operation is achieved with two rotary
switches and the large backlight display which enables multiple
results to be displayed simultaneously. A graphical quick start guide is
provided inside the lid to assist first time users.
Five preset voltage ranges are provided in insulation test mode, plus
a user settable lock voltage range. Voltage can be selected in 10-V
increments to 1 kV and 25-V increments above 1 kV. Preconfigured
diagnostic tests include Polarization Index (PI), Dielectric Absorption
Ratio (DAR), dielectric discharge (DD), Step Voltage (SV) and
ramp test.
The ramp function gradually increases voltage up to a selected level
while graphing current vs. voltage. Graphs can then be downloaded,
or streamed real time, to either the Power DB Lite software supplied
or the optional Power DB software. Graphs can then be compared to
example curves in IEEE 95-2002 to reveal a variety of faults difficult to
detect otherwise. Small defects can be easily detected without risking
the sudden large voltage increments produced by a Step Voltage test.
Monitoring the developing graph during test enables the operator
to terminate prior to breakdown, thereby reducing the possibility
of damage to already flawed insulation. These units are particularly
informative on polyester, asphalt and epoxy-mica insulations. They can
also test voltage suppression devices.
Advanced memory storage includes time/date stamping of results,
logging of data and recall of results to screen. A fully isolated
USB interface is used for safe transfer of data to Megger’s asset
management software; PowerDB Pro, Advanced and Lite packages.
Test leads are double insulated with clamps rated at 3 kV equivalent to
6 kV single insulation for the medium clip leadset and 5 kV equivalent
to 10 kV single insulation for the large clip. The 15 kV leadset is
insulated to 15 kV.

Date and time-stamped test results reduce the risk of error in result
interpretation.
APPLICATIONS
The Insulation Resistance (IR) test is a quantitative test which indicates
the effectiveness of a product’s electrical insulation. Applications
include cables, transformers, motors/generators, circuit breakers and
bushings.
The units are designed for testing the insulation of high-voltage
electric equipment. Their wide voltage range also allows applications
for low-voltage equipment. The test techniques on the instruments
provide valuable diagnostic information.
All four instruments test the insulation resistance of:
■■
High-voltage power cables and high-voltage buses
■■
Large motor/generator windings
■■
Line and substation transformers
The MIT525, MIT1025 and MIT1525 also perform spot tests, stepvoltage tests, dielectric discharge tests, ramp tests, and dielectric
absorption tests for the following applications:
■■
Acceptance testing at installation to check conformance to
specifications.
■■
Routine preventive/predictive maintenance testing after installation.
■■
QA testing as part of the manufacturing process.
■■
Diagnostic testing to isolate faulty components for repair.
IEEE Standard 43:2000
With its higher voltage testing capability, the MIT1025 is the perfect
everyday work tool for manufacturers, users and maintainers of
rotating machinery. Designed in accordance with the requirements
of IEEE43:2000, the MIT1025 is ideal for measuring the insulation
resistance of armature and field windings in rotating machines
rated 1hp (750 W) or greater. The standard applies to synchronous,
induction and dc machines as well as synchronous condensers.
In March 2000, the IEEE-SA Standards Board approved a revision of
IEEE Std 43-1974 by the Electric Machinery Committee of the IEEE
Power Engineering Society. This revision is IEEE Std 43-2000, the
“IEEE Recommended Practice for Testing Insulation Resistance of
Rotating Machinery.” Following are the testing recommendations
from the standard:
■■
Test voltages up to 10 kV are recommended for windings rated
greater than 12 kV.
■■
Both the insulation resistance and the polarization index tests are
recommended.

15 kV Insulation Testing
Centrally positioned guard ring: Guard parallel leakage,
A 15 kV insulation test is recommended for higher voltage
electrical equipment. The Pearl Reconditioning Standard / NETA
MTS-1997 defines both the minimum dc test voltage and minimum
recommended insulation resistance based on the maximum voltage
rating of the equipment being tested. For equipment rated from
35 kV to 69 kV, 15 kV dc test voltage should be used. The minimum
recommended insulation resistance is 100 GΩ.

NETA ATS 2007 Section 7.15.1 defines test voltage and minimum
insulation resistance for ac induction motors and generators. If the
voltage rating of motor’s winding is 34.5 kV, a 15 kV dc test voltage
should be used. Again, the minimum recommended insulation
resistance is 100 GΩ.
The MIT1525 maintains ±5% accuracy up to 3 TΩ, which is well
above the minimum recommended insulation resistance level in both
standards.
