Designing, developing and providing electrical test and measurement tools for more than 130 years, Megger products cover almost every application that operates within the electrical supply industry. At its core, the company is a pioneering pillar in the field, delivering electrical test equipment to help users install, improve efficiency and extend the life of electrical assets and cable networks at high, medium and low voltage.
Founded in 1889, the company is a British electrical testing company that has since fostered global recognition for their pioneering design and early advancements in insulation testing technology. They have manufacturing sites across the globe, in Germany, the US, UK and Sweden. Headquartered in Dover, UK, the testing provider has expanded to have international sales offices around the world. Over the years, there have been several companies that are now associated and fall under the group, including H.W Sullivan Ltd, AVO and Thorn Electronics. It wasn’t until 2002 that the name of the company was changed to Megger Group Limited.
The group is best known for its collection of insulation testers. However, the company provides a full-service solution to meet almost every electrical test and measurement needs. The products supplied by the testing company include solutions for the most critical maintenance sectors, including cable fault locating, protective relay testing and power quality testing.

Backed by world-leading support and expertise, Megger has earned a reputation for being the go-to brand for insulation testing and electrical testing equipment across the globe. The company has been a leading global provider of electrical test equipment and measuring devices for electrical applications for more than 100 years; becoming so influential in the engineering and development of electrical insulation testing that the term “Megger” is now synonymous with insulation and resistance testing equipment. If you operate in the electrical testing field, you’ll have undoubtedly either conducted a test yourself or have been present during a test performed by someone else.
What Is A Megger Test?
The brand itself has become so popular that the term “megger test” has been coined to describe a type of insulation test conducted on-site.
These tests refer to a method of testing making use of an insulation test resistance meter that will work to verify the condition of electrical insulation. Using a megger electrical instrument, a test voltage is sent down through an electrical system, to see if there is any leakage of current that has been passed through the insulated wiring of all the appliances of the machine.
Megger testing will not cause any damage, making the device a good choice for operations where the user does not want to put holes in walls to test electrical insulation for any potential problems. The testing process will provide information on potential leakage current and whether the insulated areas have excessive dirt, moisture, deterioration and winding faults.
