New Duplex Connect test lead system with the Megger 10A ductors

Re-blogged from cuthbertsonlaird.co.uk

Megger have replaced the old Duplex handspikes supplied with their 10A ductors. They now come bundled with a Duplex connect test lead system. These duplex test leads are fitted with hook terminations for connecting to an instrument and a connector plug equipped with ultra-bright LED indicator lights viewable from any direction. Test connection terminations are supplied separately. The duplex connector incorporates a locking ring to prevent test connections being pulled off in use.

dlro duplex connect test leads

The Megger DLRO duplex connect four terminal test lead system is designed to provide the most cost effective and convenient way to provide the user with all of the test lead terminations and lead lengths required for the many different applications encountered in low resistance testing.


At the centre of this unique test lead system is a bespoke connector allowing terminations such as kelvin clips or duplex test probes to be changed as required. There are two connector versions, one being fitted with indicator LEDs that operate with the DLRO10 range of instruments. The indicator LEDs provide enhanced safety and convenience with indications as follows:

DLRO10 and DLRO10HD

Warning of connection to hazardous live voltage.
When continuity is made.
When a test complete and measurement is on instrument display.

DLRO10X adds

Indication of pass / fail to user set test limits.

All of these important indications are therefore seen near the point of connection without needing to view the instrument display. There is even a 6 m extension lead to provide the ultimate in flexibility.

DTP1-C
Duplex Twist Probe 1 - Connect | Order part number: 1006-449

Descriptionmegger dtp1-c duplex spike

Duplex connect handspike with sprung twisting tips fitted with a connector socket for easy connection to any connect test lead. As the probe is pressed onto the test piece the tips compress and twist at the same time providing 2.4 kg of spring force. Probe tips are hardened and tempered before four equal-spaced flats are ground to provide a square shape tip, making these probes ideal for cutting through surface coatings or corrosion on test piece for a good contact.

To assist reliability the probes internal electrical connections are assisted by using an innovative volute spring eliminating the need for a separate current carrying brad.

Maximum current rating: 10 A.
Connector to probe tip resistance: 14m ohm.
Probe spacing between P and C tips: 10 mm.
Will fit Any Duplex Connex test lead and extension lead.
