The AEMC model 5070 is a portable, 5000 V megohmmeter that is one of the most innovative products in its class on the market today. The 5070 is the culmination of years of analyzing how megohmmeters are used in everyday applications and incorporating advanced features and functions to automate and facilitate the testing process for these applications.

Testing at 500, 1000, 2500 and 5000 volts, the AEMC model 5070 megohmmeter provides insulation measurements from 30 kΩ to 10 TΩ. Also available are programmable and selectable test voltages from 40 to 5100 V as well as programmable temperature correction of resistance readings. The 5070 includes advanced features such as automatic calculation and presentation of the Dielectric Absorption Ratio (DAR), Polarization Index (PI) and Dielectric Discharge (DD). The PI ratio times are also user defined. The 5070 displays the test voltage, insulation resistance and the leakage current during and after the test. Capacitance of the sample and discharge voltage present at the test leads is displayed at the conclusion of the test.

The AEMC Model 5070 is the only megohmmeter to offer both a graphical plot of the test right on the instruments, as well as a digital presentation of the test results. It has a large graphic display with five line alphanumeric display and graph. It also offers the ability to program up to three step voltage profiles, each containing up to five steps. The 5070 also offers additional functionality in that an RS-232 port provides the ability to configure the units from a PC and run the test from the PC. Automatic documentation of test conditions and test results eliminates the need for writing down information. Test reports can be generated directly from the instrument to a printer or through the PC using the DataView graphing and analysis software provided.

The AEMC model 5070 was designed with the highest level of safety features built in and conforms to the most recent international insulation and continuity testing standards including EN 61010-1 and 600V CAT III. Packaged in a rugged insulated case, this megohmmeter incorporates test inhibit capabilities which will not allow test voltages to be generated if a live sample is detected. The test terminals are recessed to ensure operating safety. The test leads, rated for 5000V for both testing and measurement, are the only truly safety approved 5000V leads on the market today. The 5070 can be operated from an internal rechargeable battery system or from AC line power.
