The Megger BM15 analogue 5 kV insulation tester is a completely self-contained instrument designed for high voltage insulation resistance testing in the maintenance and servicing of rotating plant machinery, transformers, switchgear and industrial installations.

Tests can be performed at 500 V, 1000V, 2500 V or 5000 V. Insulation measuring range is 100 kΩ to 20 GΩ and Infinity. Automatic discharge for capacitive circuits under test is provided and decaying voltage displayed.

Tests are initiated by pressing the BM15 ‘Test’ button. Releasing the ‘Test’ button causes the instrument to default to ac/dc voltmeter mode, with a discharge resistor internally connected across the terminals. This feature will give decaying voltage indication following the testing of equipment possessing capacitance.

The instrument will operate in any position, but best results are achieved when the instrument is face up, on a firm level surface.


Large, single scale analog display.
Auto voltage measurement function indicates conductor and auto discharge potential.
Supplied with optional locking test button.
Safety recessed terminals and long connectors.
Four output test voltages.
Simple to use.
CE marked.
Unique scale overlay for pass/fail bands.
Resilient mounted analogue scale for robustness.
Single scale for insulation values to avoid operator error.
Light weight and rugged.
Range down to 100 kΩ ideal for go/no go testing.
