The Megger BM5200 Insulation Tester is a battery powered instrument with digital and analog arc display, designed for high voltage insulation resistance testing in the maintenance and servicing of cables, rotating plant machinery, transformers, switch gear and industrial installations.

DC insulation tests are performed at 250V, 500V, 1000V, 2500V and 5000V. Insulation resistance measuring range is 100kΩ to 1000GΩ. Automatic discharge for capacitive circuits under test is provided and decaying voltage displayed.

The guard terminal can be used to minimize the effects of surface leakage and hence erroneous measurements when carrying out insulation resistance tests.

Three insulation resistance (IR) test modes are provided, (InS, PI and t) and available in any IR test range. In IR mode (InS) tests are initiated by pressing and holding down the TEST button for two seconds and terminated by a second press of the TEST button. A Polarisation Index (PI) mode performs a ratio metric test that calculates the ratio of insulation resistance at ten minutes to insulation resistance at one minute. The IR test timer (t) mode facilitates a single fixed time test based on the set time interval t.
