as Rob suggests, it would seem that PE would indicate a voltage on the PE. however, OP says he was using 2 leads L-N. possibly be a N not tied down to E due to a poor connection. I found 1 of those causing a high Ze. turned out the jumper from N-E in a PME head was loose.

This was my initial thought too.

Although a call to Megger an probably some more testing will be required.

Haven’t my 1730 to hand nor instructions, but I neve selected Zmax when measuring Ze/PFC. That if I remember was measuring max Zs figures on a circuit.

There’s a guy at Megger Tchnical, Ian Bentsed or something like that. He’s the one to speak to about error codes and using their MFT’s.
