Megger’s KC-series of test leads are said to be suitable for testing the continuity of lightning protection conductors in wind-turbine blades.

The test leads, which were developed in conjunction with wind-turbine manufacturers, eliminate the need for engineers and technicians involved in wind-turbine testing to fabricate their own test leads or resort to makeshift arrangements that may deliver uncertain results.

KC-series wind turbine test leads are available 100m, 50m and 30m versions, and are equally suitable for use on site or in the manufacturing plant, Megger said.

For convenience and ease of handling, they are supplied as standard on a heavy-duty cable reel that is fitted with a friction brake to avoid tangles when paying out the cable.

The leads are terminated with large robust Kelvin clips that have been designed to offer ease-of-use while providing the reliable connections needed to ensure accurate and repeatable test results.

Included with each lead set is a 5m cable fitted with a duplex handspike for probing the lightning receptors on the tips of the turbine blades.

KC-series leads are suited for use with Megger DLRO10HD low-resistance digital ohmmeters, which combine robust construction with a high test-current capability.

They also have an IP65 protection rating with the lid closed, and an IP54 rating when the lid is open and tests are being performed, which means that they can be safely used outdoors even when it is raining.

KC-series leads can also be used with most modern types of low-resistance ohmmeter.
