Megger MFT1700 Series

The MFT1700 series is a range of three instruments for testing low voltage electrical installations to BS7671. They provide all the tests required to complete the necessary electrical certification for industrial, commercial and domestic fixed wiring installations.

MFT1710 - The entry level 17th Edition tester offering CAT IV, 3 and 2-wire non trip loop testing with resistance and fault current display, frequency measurement and the largest, brightest and clearest display on the market.

MFT1720 - The most popular of the range of 17th Edition testers offering all the benefits of the MFT1710, plus auto RCD testing, phase rotation, programmable and 3-phase RCD testing and current measurement with the optional clamp.

MFT1730 - The most sophisticated of the 17th Edition testers brings Type B RCD testing, 3-pole earth electrode testing to a downloading and rechargeable instrument.

The unique modern styling allows it to be operated while stood on the floor, a ladder-shelf or platform, hung around the neck or handheld. Dual TEST and LOCK buttons – one pair at each end – makes the testers easy to operate left or right handed.

Quick to pick up and use, the controls are colour coded to make range selection easy and fast. They also reduce the chance of using the wrong function or range. The large crystal clear backlit display uses the patented Megger digital/ analogue arc, providing indication of fluctuating readings while the dual digital readout shows precise values of key measurements simultaneously with the test parameters, such as the output voltage on insulation testing as well as the resistance value in MΩ

  • Two and three wire non trip loop testing for fast repeatable results

  • Large bright LCD display showing dual parameters - loop resistance and fault current, insulation resistance and test voltage

  • Phase rotation indication for verification of rotating machinery

  • 3-phase RCD testing for industrial applications with no earth

  • 3-terminal earth test for electrode resistance measurement

  • On-board data storage and Bluetooth® download

Visible and audible safety warnings are paramount when testing high-energy systems and the MFT1700 series includes full input protection and safety warnings when a hazardous voltage is present. If live voltages exist on a circuit during insulation or continuity testing, the voltage is displayed on the screen. If this voltage exceeds a safe level, further testing
is inhibited and a warning beep sounds.

The MFT1730 features internally rechargeable batteries and charger with a charge time of less than 4 hrs, so reducing the cost of ownership.

Fully compliant with all requirements of IEC 60364 derived standards including VDE 0100 and BS 7671, the new MFT includes all the latest measurement technology in a light- weight compact design, fully protected and usable on single phase and 3 phase installations.

New measurement functions include two and three wire non-trip loop test technology for fast repeatable results, comprehensive testing of RCDs including type B, and integrated 3-terminal techniques for earth electrode testing.
