Megger Introduces The Newest Innovations in Oil Testing

Redesigned in their entirety after a detailed analysis of user requirements, the new range of oil test sets from Megger sets new standards for performance, ease of use, reliability and value for money. The new OTS range includes laboratory instruments for testing up to 100 kV, and portable instruments – including the world’s lightest oil test sets in the 60 kV and 75 to 80 kV ranges.
  • Easiest test sets to maintain and clean
  • Unique locking feature on electrode gap adjustment
  • World's lightest portable oil test set
  • Worlds's highest voltage portable oil test set
Tough chambers

All of the instruments in the range use the same test vessel, which is manufactured from a moulded material that has been specially selected as impervious to the effects of insulating oils and cleaning agents. The use of this material means that the vessels are much more resistant to breakage than their conventional glass counterparts and also much less expensive – both major benefits, particularly for those who prefer to use separate vessels for each type of oil.

Packed with useful features

Megger’s new oil test sets also offer convenient and precise thumbwheel adjustment for electrode spacing. Unlike all other currently available instruments, the adjuster incorporates a locking mechanism that completely eliminates the problem of accidental electrode movement during testing.

Other key features include a convenient pouring lip on the test vessel, a unique test chamber drain for spilt oil, automatic oil temperature measurement, support for both output voltage and output current breakdown detection, and facilities for storing results internally and on standard USB memory sticks. Data output is provided in .csv format for transfer in to laboratory information management system software (LIMS). USB memory sticks can also be used for loading different test standards.

2 portable and 3 laboratory oil test sets

The OTS range includes five models. The OTS60AF, OTS80AF and OTS100AF are primarily intended for use in fixed locations, such as laboratories, and offer maximum test voltages of 60 kV, 80 kV and 100 kV respectively. The OTS60PB and OTS80PB are compact lightweight instruments for portable use and offer maximum test voltages of 60 kV and 80 kV respectively.

All models feature a colour display with straightforward menu navigation, which makes them fast and easy to use. In addition, the laboratory models have a large keypad to facilitate rapid data entry.

Buy as much as you want

Across the range, Megger offers a configure-to-build service. This allows purchasers to specify the precise combination of options they need, and then Megger builds the instrument to suit. This means that users can have all of the features and facilities they need, without having to pay for unwanted options.
