The MTD-20KWe digital earth tester allows for the measurement of Earth Resistances and Soil Specific Resistivity, and also the spurious voltages caused by parasitic voltages present in the soil.
This equipment are suitable for fast and easy measurement of the grounding resistance in house and industrial buildings, hospital installations, lightning rods, antennas, substations, etc. Soil resistivity measurement allows for soil stratification in order to optimize the most complex grounding systems engineering. Its state-of-the-art system of active and passive filters provides it with high immunity to electric interferences, making it possible to obtain reliable measurements even in the presence of spurious voltages, such as the ones that can be found in some urban areas and near primary substations.
It has an audible signal which advises the operator when the generated current is not enough to carry out reliable measurements. Due to the fact that it may not be noticed, this alarm prevents from informing non-valid resistance values.
Because of its wide range of measurement (from 0.01Î© up to 20kÎ©), this equipment allows for reliable testing in all kinds of soils, including those that offer very high resistivity. The use of this instrument is very simple, it has a high-visibility 3Â½ - digit display with direct readings, even under sunlight.
This earth tester is supplied with a 6V rechargeable internal battery. The smart charger is microprocessor controlled, and can be powered from the mains by means of the provided source or from a 12 V car battery (or a similar one).
It has a sturdy, easy and safe to carry cabinet, with IP-54 protection level. It is suitable to work under adverse geographical and environmental conditions, with extreme temperatures in cold or tropical regions and in high mountain areas, showing a reliable performance in out in the field activities.
