AEMC 6501 Offers

The easy hand-cranked operation provides a steady, DC voltage output across the entire range for consistently reliable readings. In addition to insulation resistance testing at 500V, it also permits resistance testing to 500kΩ and continuity testing to 100Ω.

A 600V test voltage range is provided to perform safety checks to confirm that the sample is fully discharged and not connected to an energized circuit.

Incorporating a built-in sealed generator and constant DC voltage circuit, the megohmmeter provides a very stable resistance reading.

This analog instrument has a unique auto-ranging feature which expands the scale ten times. When the pointer reaches near the end of scale, the auto-ranging feature activates, returning the pointer to the beginning of the scale with the x10 red LED indicator on.

Insulation resistance is indicated with a rugged taut-band meter movement on a logarithmic scale. The indicator scale is large and easy-to-read, and has direct reading on all ranges. An amber LED on the front panel illuminates when the proper crank speed is attained, indicating the presence of the selected output.

Features

  • True Megohmmeter®
  • Test voltages of 500V
  • Insulation measurements to 500MΩ
  • LED indicates constant voltage output and proper cranked speed
  • Automatic discharge when measurement is finished
  • Auto-Ranging dual scale operation for better sensitivity and easier readings
  • Compact self-contained package; folded crank
  • Large direct reading scale

Applications

  • Acceptance testing and preventive maintenance
  • Test motors, cables, switch-gears and electrical wiring installations
  • Continuity checks
  • Check domestic and industrial wiring

AEMC: Introduction to Insulation Resistance Testing


This video will serve as an introduction to insulation resistance testing. Additionally, it will go over the spot reading test, time-resistance test, and step voltage test which are the three commonly used methods for testing insulation resistance and the user will need a megohmmeter to perform these tests.
