  • Mains or battery powered.
  • Digital/analogue backlit display.
  • Variable test voltage from 50 to 5000V or 10,000V.
  • Automatic IR, PI, DAR, SV and DD tests.
  • Measures to 15TO (MIT520) and 35TO (MIT1020).
  • RS-232 and USB download of results to Megger Download Manager.
  • On-board memory for results storage.


The instruments have a large easy to read backlit LCD display making it equally suitable for use in both bright sunlight and poorly lit environments. Information displayed includes resistance, voltage, leakage current, capacitance, battery status and time constant. In addition, the elapsed time of the test is displayed constantly, removing the need for separate timers. Adjustable timers and limit alarms are included.

The instrument can test when being powered by the mains or its internal rechargeable battery, a great benefit when site conditions are unknown or long term testing is required. The controls of the instrument are clear and unambiguous and a "quick start" guide is included in the lid of the instrument removing the need to carry bulky manuals under site conditions.

The instrument is fitted with a guard terminal to enhance accuracy. The guard test lead is included as standard with the instrument.

To further enhance the flexibility of the instruments both have the facility to set the test voltage in steps from 50 V to the maximum output voltage avoiding the expense of several insulation resistance testers to meet your application needs.

These IR instruments are designed to meet the highest safety standards and meets the requirements of EN61010. In addition, the instrument measures the voltage at the terminals and if this is above 50 V then the instrument will display the high voltage warning and inhibit testing. At the end of the test the instrument will automatically discharge the energy transferred to the equipment during the test phase.

The MIT520 and MIT1020 are equally suited to routine testing and diagnostic regimes being pre-programmed with IR, PI, DAR, SV and DD profiles.
