Highly efficient HV inverter, with test voltage of 10 kV and current of 6 mA, suitable for measuring the insulation resistance up to 40 TΩ. Achieving such a result makes these meters unrivalled devices. Three-wire resistance measurement, performed using a "GUARD" wire, eliminates surface leakage currents caused by contaminated insulation, thereby increasing the reliability of obtained results.
The meter measures temperature of tested object, which is necessary to determine the temperature correction factor for RISO. In addition, it indicates the absorption coefficient (DAR - Dielectric Absorption Ratio), Polarization Index (PI) and the value of Dielectric Discharge (DD). The device allows user to assess the condition of the insulation, by applying the test voltage incrementally in steps (SV). This solution ensures that a dielectric in good condition will provide the same results, regardless of the applied voltage. Deviations in obtained resistance values of approx. 25%, observed on the chart in the individual steps, may indicate the potential insulation defects.
MIC-10k1 has the unique ability to perform measurements on multi-core cables, within one connection step, using the AutoISO-5000 adapter. This solution reduces the duration of measurements on repetitive of objects, such as cables of street lighting systems. Inverter with a power of almost 60 W is able to intensify the point of cable damage, which facilitates finding the location of the fault using a reflectometric method e.g. with TDR-420 device.
Built-in digital filters, with averaging time of 10, 30, 60, 100, 200 sec. and "smart" solution guarantee stable measurement results in areas of strong electromagnetic interference.
