The DET24C is designed with flat core ends that prevent dirt build up, ensuring measurement integrity and improved reliability over products with interlocking teeth. Other enhancements over current generation products include improved accuracy and up to 300% increase in battery life. In electrically noisy environments, the built-in filter function offers increased noise immunity.
The DET24C also offers a true RMS AC current measurement facility up to 35 Amps. The instrument’s ability to measure the current flowing in an earth cable is a useful safety feature, especially if the earth cable has to be disconnected. A high current flow to earth could draw an arc on disconnection with potentially severe consequences.
The elliptically shaped head design of the DET24C offers improved access to cables and earth straps in space-constrained locations. The clamp head accommodates up to 1.46 in. (37 mm) diameter cable and 1.97 in. (50 mm) earth tapes, making it suitable for use in power stations, substations, towers, and many more facilities. Operation in dark and restricted areas is facilitated by a display with backlight and an audible tone associated with the hold key. The optimized jaw opening mechanism ensures proper jaw closure without excessive use of force when opening the jaws.
The DET24C supports downloading of results via Bluetooth into PowerDB and PowerDB Lite, Megger’s acceptance and maintenance test data management software. Stored data is indexed using a sequential serial number together with a time and date stamp for each record.
