    Repeatability of Zs measurements

    Recently I got a DL9118 multi-function tester and one of its capabilities is, of course, measuring Zs. But I wondered how it worked in terms of compensating for test lead impedance (no mention in the manual) and after inquiring it was confirmed it has factory cal for the supplied leads. Next...

    18th Edition tester or not?

    I’m looking to get registered with the compétant persons scheme. I’m looking at testers and wondering if it’s worth the extra money to get a tester that tests b type RCDs. would the scheme pénalise me for not having an 18th fully compliant tester? wondering on what people’s views are.

    Using our MFT on 500v IR as a damp test probe?

    OK, Stop laughing at the back! SO, I'm house hunting and, ignoring the number of beautifully decorated houses with shite electrics - I also want to be aware of any damp issues. This led me to try using the trusty Megger with sharp probes to test for damp. This appears to work, or at-least is...

    Is a dedicated PAT tester required or can it also be done with an MFT?

    Saw videos on YouTube showing MFT's and DMM's used for testing equipment. Would these produce valid results considering the complicated array of adapters required

    Which MFT - 1711 or 1721?

    I think my trusty 9 year old 1553 is giving up the ghost.:( I have started getting erratic readings. When on continuity setting the value moves around when you touch the leads. Have some new leads knocking around and same problem. Also had a couple of problems with the 13A plug top lead doing...

    opinions sought on the TIS MFT PRO

    They got this new tester behind the counter at CEF, its a fancy looking MFT that says it does power quality analysis. Heres a link to the blurb. So I haven't had any experience with TIS gear, to me the red and black makes it look a bit UniT MeterM8 ish but close up the thing looks quite good...

    Considering buying a new MFT.

    Morning.. I'm happyish with my Metrel MI3000, but the loop test is playing up which means having to use the non trip function at times even when there's no RCD which apart from being time consuming is also not as accurate. Quoted price to fix £375!!!!! Ridiculous! So.. I was reading through PE...
