Socket & See MFT5000 test sequences

Insulation Testing
Selectable ranges 250V / 500V and 1000V. The current and voltage are measured and the external resistance calculated and displayed.

Loop Testing
High current 2 wire test mode enables the user to test the true impedance of both the Line-Neutral Loop and the Line-Earth loop and therefore to establish both the PSC (prospective short circuit current) and the PFC (prospective fault current) for the installation

No trip 3 wire test mode generates a current that is too low to trip an RCD on an otherwise healthy circuit.  The No Trip test is a 3-wire test that also checks the Live, Neutral/Earth conductors are correctly connected before running the loop test.

Result displayed by pressing the PFC / PSC button after a loop test (High Current and No Trip)

RCD Testing
Individually selectable 30mA / 100mA / 300mA and 500mA (Type AC/A) and 100mA / 300mA (Type ACS / AS).

30mA Auto test – The unit will conduct all six required tests at a single touch of a button. Then when the RCD under test “trips” reset the RCD and continue to do so until the test procedure is complete. Clear PASS / FAIL indication provided on screen.

Ramp Test – Gradually increases the fault current and identifies the level of additional leakage at which the RCD trips. Useful for diagnostic testing of circuits where nuisance tripping is a problem and helps to identify the difference between an over sensitive RCD and excessive leakage from poor insulation, or equipment with high leakage.

Phase Rotation
During phase rotation measurement the amplitudes and phase angles of the three inputs L1 L2 L3 are checked against limits, allowing for mild unbalance conditions. The indication 1-2-3 is displayed for normal rotation (L2 lags L1) and 3-2-1 for reverse rotation (L2 leads L1).

Display of Phase rotation is Automatic when all three tests leads are connected to the 3 phase supply.

The MFT5000 will display .1 .2 .3 or .3 .2 .1 depending on the direction of phase rotation.

Socket Testing
Perform a quick and easy check of a sockets wiring condition.

Polarity Test Pad
Test for and identify rare reverse polarity (Live ‘Phase’ to earth/neutral and earth/neutral to Live ‘Phase’. A potentially dangerous condition that conventional loop testers may not highlight.

Continuity Test
Establish the resistance of the circuit under test. Lead null function for fast and accurate measurement.

The Socket & See MFT5000 is also available with a custom splash screen, so you can truly make it your own.
