Megger MFT-X1 Multifunction Tester

The Megger MFT-X1 Multifunction Tester with True Loop™, industry leading loop impedance test with patented Confidence Meter™ technology, full CertSuite™ compatibility, to make certificate generation a breeze. High resolution loop testing, stabilised insulation voltage output, full colour screen and new operator interface are now standard. The user upgradeable operating software ensures the MFT-X1 has the ability to adapt to regulation changes and make it the perfect instrument for fast, reliable, accurate and adaptable testing.

  • Electrical testing of single and 3-phase installations.
  • Brand new features including full colour screen,
  • RCD configurator
  • EV charge point testing
  • Fully compatible with CertSuite™for easy certificate generation and reporting.
  • TrueLoop™ measurement using patented confidence meter.
  • Never be without power with the quick-remove battery pack and rechargeable battery option.

Intended for use on all low voltage electrical installations including EV charge points and domestic photo-voltaic systems, the range of test capabilities allow for general commissioning of installations and periodic maintenance as well as detailed fault diagnostics.

True Loop™ impedance testing is now a standard feature on the MFT-X1. The latest 3-wire non-trip loop testing technology, incorporated with the patented Confidence Meter™, offers an unmatched, reliable, accurate, stable and repeatable loop test solution to the user, allowing testing in the most hostile high noise conditions or close to the source of supply. The technology also removes the risk of RCD uplift whilst reducing typical test times – even on circuits protected by 6 mA or 10 mA protective devices.

All loop impedance ranges are now supported by the Megger patented Confidence meter technology, reducing typical test times for non-trip loop testing to around 7 seconds on quiet circuits, and providing optimised test times for loop impedance testing in difficult noisy supplies. The Confidence meter shows the progress of the loop measurement and indicates the presence of noise on the circuit, removing erroneous values to give a stable and consistent result.

Test results can be tagged with circuit data and transferred to CertSuite, the latest cloud base electrical certification software package from Megger.  When paired to a mobile device using the low energy

Bluetooth mode, results can be sent directly from the MFT-X1 to an Android or IOS device running Megger CertSuite software. These results are also synchronised with the cloud-based application.  With a wide range of certification options, CertSuite is available as a monthly or yearly subscription package for electrical certification of installations taking results directly from the MFT whilst testing. CertSuite is suitable for multiple concurrent users and is optimised for use with the MFT-X1.  Results can be stored and reviewed remotely by users whilst on site from different locations, accessed by head office or other users with the relevant permission, with professional looking certification and reports.

The MFT-X1 has extended the low end of the loop impedance range from 0.01 ohms to 0.001 ohms resolution and 50 kA current calculation. The True Loop impedance measurement using the patented confidence meter makes these low impedance measurements a realistic option, with two wire test connections and high current testing.

RCD testing can now be optimised with the RCD test configurator. Select a whole suite of tests or only those elements of the RCD you require. You can even add ramp testing to the sequence, optimising and simplifying testing.

Suitable for both EV charger installation testing with either RCD Type B or RDC protected charge points. The MFT-X1 in conjunction with the Megger EVCA adaptor can test all known EV chargers for installation or maintenance.

For the first time in any multifunction tester, the MFT-X1 incorporates a stabilised insulation test voltage, ensuring output voltage is accurate to within +/-3% +2 digits. This compares to the industry standard of +20% and so provides a more accurate test voltage without the risk of over-voltage damage to circuits or sensitive components.

The operating system of the MFT-X1 range is upgradable by the user, simply by downloading the latest operating system file (.BIN) from the Megger web site to a suitable microSD card. Insert the updated microSD card and pressing TEST initiates an automatic update process without the need for further user intervention.

The user interface utilises the flexibility of the high contrast 480 x 272 colour, TFT bonded display, with a monochrome black on white mode designed specifically for use in difficult lighting conditions. Enhancing the colour coded test selection rotary dial, range selection is now replicated on the instrument screen, ensuring easy use in poor lighting environments. Hot keys for second level functions are clearly shown across the top of each screen and the second control dial provides users with a further quick selection option of any highlighted feature, even if wearing protective gloves. Relevant information is clearly shown on the display, both before and after each test, in full colour, and includes the Confidence Meter™ progress bar, RCD ramp test progress as well as the insulation and continuity measurement bar graph. The new Voltage Widget, displays the L-N, L-E and N-E voltages.

The Megger MFT-X1 can be powered by either the Megger Li-ION battery pack or using standard NiMH or Alkaline batteries. The unique 4Ahr rechargeable Li-ION battery can be swapped with the AA carrier module, providing the fastest and most flexible battery change solution in the industry.
