Voltmeter is incorporated in the instrument and measures AC/DC voltage from 30 V to 660 V. Frequency (Hz) is measured and displayed for AC voltages. Voltmeter mode is activated by switching to ‘V’ mode.Now equipped with lithium ion fast rechargeable batteries, the instrument has a large, clear, easy to read, 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.The Megger MIT515,can be powered from the mains supply or by it’s rechargeable battery, which provides for 4½ to 6 hours of continuous testing with a 100 MΩ load. The battery pack contains Lithium-ion cells and should be replaced when it no longer holds a charge. A new battery is available as a spare part from Megger. The battery pack is housed within a grey moulded cover secured by four screws. Insulation resistance (IR) is a measurement of how good or bad your insulation is, which can help give you an overall assessment of your electrical equipment’s health. 5KV Megger MIT525  is a small, portable instrument that gives you a direct reading of insulation resistance in ohms or megohms or Gigaohms ,Teraohms . For good insulation, the resistance usually reads in the megohm and Gigaohm range.Adiradh offering  bets prices of  5KV Digital High voltage Insulation resistance testers, 5KV Insulation tester , Gigital insulation tester 5KV,Digital insulation tester 5000V in India

Various types of diagnostic insulation tests:

Spot Reading Test (IR )(IR(t)): The simplest of all insulation tests and the one most associated with lower voltage insulation testers; the test voltage is applied for a short, specific period of time and a reading is then taken

Time vs. Resistance Test (DAR): The concept of the time resistance test is to take successive readings at specified times during a single test.

Polarization Index Test (PI): The simplest implementation of the time resistance test for solid insulation, the PI Test requires only two readings followed by a simple division; the one-minute reading is divided into the ten-minute reading to provide a ratio. With “good” insulation, leakage current is relatively small and resistance rises continually as current decreases from the effects of charging and dielectric absorption

Dielectric Discharge Test (DD): While the other methods mentioned measure the currents flowing during the charging process, the DD test measures the current that flows during discharge of the test sample.

Step Voltage Test (SV): Since good insulation is resistive, an increase in test voltage will lead to an increase in current with a result that the resistance remains constant. Any deviation from this could signify defective insulation. At lower test voltages, say 500 V or 1000 V, it is quite possible that these defects might be unobserved, but as the voltage rises we reach a point where ionization can take place within cracks or cavities, resulting in an increase in current, and therefore a reduction in the insulation resistance.

Ramped Voltage Test: The ramped voltage test is endorsed in  IEEE95-2002 as part of the recommended practice for insulation testing of AC electric machinery (2300 V and above) with high direct voltage. When using this test method, the test voltage is gradually increased (ramped) at a set rate to a final level, which results in an increase in the current. Any variations in current compared to the increase in applied test voltage can provide useful diagnostic information about the condition of the insulation.

Choose an insulation tester?

Test Voltage

You should also base your voltage requirements on the rated voltage of the equipment you are working with, specifically whether or not you will be performing tests at or above rated, i.e. stress tests.Something to keep in mind is that pervasive insulation damage, such as moisture ingress, is revealed at any voltage; whereas mechanical damage usually requires a higher voltage for detection – capable of arcing an air gap.With 1 kV, 2.5 kV, and 5 kV models to choose from, this may be the most critical decision you have to make.

 Measurement Range

When  working in the realm of predictive maintenance, it’s critical to know exactly how your measurements change over time, specifically in the upper values of resistance.  Insulation testers allow you to test into the tera ohm range (TΩ) – giving you the capability to differentiate between elevated resistance measurements over time. It may be helpful to determine the exact insulation resistance values of your equipment when it’s new, and then choose a tester that can truly measure those values.

Power Source

Batteries are likely the most convenient,

Voltage Detection

Insulation testers  will detect unwanted voltage on the item under test


Combine both  Analogue and LCD display capabilities in a single unit suggestable

 Ω/kΩ/GΩ/TΩ Ranges

Okay, these are commonly referred to as “continuity” and “resistance” ranges, which greatly enhance the depth of your testing capabilities. Ohm ranges can help you verify the integrity of circuits and connections, while kilohm ranges are helpful for identifying areas of insulation deterioration.

Guard Terminal

To eliminate certain components of leakage from measurements, should take the guard terminal into consideration.


From a few  rupees thousands to several Lakhs , we have an insulation tester for every budget. Don’t let the price tag fool you either. Regardless of your budget, you’ll find a model that not only fits your testing requirements, but also offers a range of additional features too.

“Extra” Features

Newer models offer pre-programmed standardized tests, such as Polarization Index, Step Voltage, and Dielectric Discharge, along with calculation and storage of results, downloading capabilities, timed tests, leakage current measurements, and a “burn mode”.We recommend that if it fits your budget – go for it!
