Continuity Measurement Continuous testing can be carried out by use of the test button lockdown feature. A selectable buzzer gives instantaneous indication of continuity. Null facility eliminates the test lead resistance from the results, the nulled value is retained even if the instrument is switched off. Live circuit warnings are given by a flashing LED, buzzer and indication on the display.
Insulation Measurement Three selectable test voltages 250V, 500V and 1000V. An auto-discharge function ensures that circuits are not hazardous after testing. A red LED gives warning of high voltage output during testing and discharging of the circuit. In case of connecting to a live circuit, a live circuit warning is given by flashing LED, buzzer and indication on the display.
Loop Impedance Measurement A patented (ATT) low current loop impedance test enables high accuracy loop measurements and quick testing without tripping RCD's.
A high current alternative is selectable for even higher accuracy and instantaneous results. The subsequent test will default to the low current test, this saves any inadvertent tripping of the RCD. The KEW 6016 allows also for phase to phase loop tests.
The Prospective Short Circuit Current (PSC) and Prospective Fault Current (PFC) are automatically calculated and shown on the display. As loop testing, the function has low and high test current options with the default to low current to avoid inadvertent tripping of RCDs.
RCD Measurement The KEW 6016 has a comprehensive RCD test feature for RCD type AC (Alternative Currents), RCD type A (Pulsating Direct Currents), General and Selective (delayed).
Measures at 1/2x, 1x, 5x of nominal RCD current. It also has Ramp Test and Auto test where all results are shown on one screen. Touch voltage limit can be selected for 25V or 50V depending on application.
Earth Measurement Using the classical Volt-Amper method with two auxiliary earth spikes and without external power source. All test leads and spikes are supplied as standard accessories.
Phase rotation KEW 6016 can check the phase rotation of three phase lines with clear indication of the sequence on the display.
Voltage Measurement In addiction to the voltage measurement, this function gives also the Frequency of the voltage under test.
