The MEGGER BM80/2 Series are multivoltage insulation and continuity testers offering advanced performance, specification and features, and simplicity of use. They have insulation test voltages from 50 V to 1000 V d.c., (500 V max. on BM81/2.) The comprehensive specification is achieved using the latest electronic design and technology.
Extensive use by electrical contractors.
These insulation testers are designed for flexibility and versatility, they have a wide variety of applications, ideal for testing electrical installations to the British and International Wiring Regulations. Each instrument in the series conforms to the requirements of Table 71 A in BS 7671, and to VDE 0413 parts 1 and 4, HD384 and IEC364.
The BM80/2 series can be used in both the domestic and industrial contracting environments. Test voltages of 250 V, 500 V and 1000 VDC are available. A 250 V insulation test voltage is necessary to test low voltage circuits supplied by an isolating transformer. 500 VDC is the most commonly required voltage, since it is used to test all circuits except low voltage circuits with a nominal voltage up to and including 500 V. The 1000 VDC test voltage is used on circuits with a nominal voltage greater than 500 V and less than 1000 VDC ring final circuit conductors, and the polarity of the conductors.
The BM80/2 can also be used for insulation and continuity tests on transformers, motors, generators, domestic appliances, power tools, such as electric drills, and many other pieces of electrical equipment. On high energy systems it is recommended that test leads with fused prods are used when measuring voltage.
