The C.A 6505 megohmmeter is a portable instrument housed in a rugged field case with lid and operates on either battery or line power. It makes voltage, insulation, and capacitance measurements.

As soon as the switch is set to an insulation measurement position, the instrument automatically measures the presence of any AC/DC voltage. This voltage is measured at all times and indicated on the small display unit. The CA6505 automatically determines AC or DC: the AC measurement is an RMS value.

Insulation is sensitive to temperature and humidity variations. In addition, measurement is affected by the appearance of disturbance currents. To overcome these effects, long-term measurements must be performed and the PI and DAR coefficients must be calculated. They will then allow qualification of the insulants and their ageing.
