On my last three NICEIC visits they have changed their minds each time
Was every 3 years
Then endless if I had my own proving unit,

KT65, selector switch went in warranty, that was just dirt , it does get used in some nasty industrial locations, since then its now over 9 years old still going strong, have another KT65 as back up but never been out of the house.
Only other thing is one of the leads broke

Good solid tester, although it only does type AC RCD testing which my mate found a limitation recently to his otherwise comprehensive tester.

The new kewtech kt63 + I think it is looks pretty damn good... Has built in dc testing for rcds which is good as we are moving towards type a etc.... Most can't test them... Only the ac side... Its nearly £1k though

I have a Megger MFT 1741-BS. Had a Megger MFT 1553 before that. (Still have it as a backup.) New one is much faster and also has rechargeable batteries. Great instrument, although some would still swear by the 1500 series over the 1700 series.
Speak to Megger and get it upgraded to the new 1741+ I think they will do it for a low price....

Do they offer a deal on upgrading to the 1741+?

I'll be honest - I was fuming when I found out that it had been released as I've only had my 1741 just over a year and would have bought the 1741+ had it existed at the time. (I see there's a nice limited edition black version of it too...)

A couple of Megger 1553s one with Bluetooth feature that was used once.
interested to hear that Megger potentially do an subsidised upgrade to the 1700 series. Does anyone have any idea how to go about it.

Recently got a DiLOG DL9118 MFT as it seemed to be a decent enough unit for the price, but don't have any experience to compare that with, say, the Megger MFTs.

However I still prefer my Megger MIT230 for general bond impedance testing (seems a little quicker / more responsive) but mostly because on insulation it goes up to 1G ohm which I have found useful (not domestic testing).

Does anyone else test their MFT against a Cal-Card and a known RCD? Mine gets a run through and spreadsheet log roughly every month. Give me a heads up as to potential issues.
What a great idea!

I have never seen the CalCard before, but I have some other resistor calibration boxes that are not as convenient to carry/keep with the instrument/etc.
