The Fluke 1550 MegOhmMeter from Fluke Corp. performs insulation resistance testing of up to 1 teraohm, with output voltgaes of 500V, 1kV, 2.5kV, and 5kV, making the device suitable for use in installation testing, and maintenance and commissioning.

Designed for testing swithgear, transformers, motors, generators, and cables, the Fluke 1550 features a ramp function (0kVdc to 5kVdc) for breakdown testing, a timer for dielectric absorption, and the ability to conduct leakage current and cable or capacitance tests.

The 170-by-242-by-330mm device is capable of giving voltage readings up to 600Vac/dc and has a voltage alert warning to warn users than voltage is present. It shows measurement changes graphically via analog bar graphs, as well as digital measurements. The tester also has has a last-reading memory display for insulation resistance and lo-ohms.

It also features 99 memory locations to store measurement parameters. The measurements can also be downloaded to a Windows-based PC using the Quicklink 1550 software and optical interface cable. The meter supports Windows 95/98/ME/NT4/2000 OS.

The Fluke 1550 is powered by a 12V battery capable of up to 2,500 tests. It operates from -20C to 40C, and is fully-compliant with EN 61010-1, CAT III 600V overvoltage category, EN 61577 installation tesiting, and EN 61326 EMI immunity standards.
