The Megger MFT1721 multifunction tester for hire from Megger is a versatile and cost-effective choice for contractors whose work includes commercial and industrial installations that have three-phase supplies.
As well as providing all of the facilities needed for testing low-voltage single-phase installations in line with the IET Wiring Regulations, this innovative instrument can also check phase sequence, evaluate prospective short-circuit current up to 20 kA, perform phase-to-phase loop testing at 415 V, and test three-phase RCDs even when no neutral connection is available.
Additionally, the MFT1721, which is one of the new models in Megger’s popular and successful MFT1700 range, offers valuable extra features, including: true RMS voltage measurement, facilities for testing the Type B RCDs and a millivolt sensor input. It also features fast-response continuity testing at 200 mA or 15 mA and, with an optional current clamp accessory, it can be used to measure current.
The MFT1721 has a timesaving automatic RCD test facility, and can test RCDs with sensitivity ratings between 10 mA and 1 A, including programmable types.
Like all instruments in the new MFT1701 range, the MFT1721 provides three options for loop testing – two-wire no trip, three-wire no trip and high current – which means that the fastest and most convenient method can be used in every situation.
A large, bright, dual-parameter display shows the test voltage at the same time as insulation resistance. Loop resistance is displayed at the same time as prospective fault current. Tests are selected quickly and positively using clearly marked colour-coded control knobs – there are no complex and confusing menus to navigate.
Safety is central to the design of MFT1700-series instruments. They are dust and rain proof to IP54 rating, and they have a CAT IV 300 V safety rating, which means they can be used without concerns in any environment. The instruments also incorporate comprehensive protection against damage if the wrong range is selected or if they are accidentally connected to a live circuit, even if the test has been locked on.

Megger designs and manufactures portable electrical test equipment. Megger products help you install, improve efficiency, reduce cost and extend the life of your or your customers’ electrical assets.
Established in the late 1800s, the company has been designing and making test and measurement instruments that perform electrical measurements for preventative maintenance, troubleshooting and commissioning for decades. Megger products have supported customers all over the world to improve their facilities’ efficiency, reduce costs, extend the life of apparatus and through trending and analysis, anticipate equipment failure and future performance. It now has local offices in many locations with technical support teams and distributors all over the world. Manufacturing plants are located in Germany, Sweden, the UK, and USA.
Working with customers
Megger believes that by working closely with customers it can deliver the best customer solutions and after-sales service today, and in the future. Megger is committed to anticipating client needs by listening to customers and industry specialists while continually investing in innovative research and development, design engineering and manufacturing techniques.
Our strategy is to produce all our products with a single brand name, Megger. The advantages to you are that you know the products and software will work well together, and all the products have a similar yet distinctive ‘look and feel’ with their dark and light grey casings. We don’t waste colour on trying to make our test instruments pretty – we reserve it for useful functions such as range selectors and displays. Our design engineers come from many different nations, and they regularly exchange ideas and tips with colleagues from other countries. That means you get the latest innovations, one of the reasons that Megger products are so advanced. As more companies join the Megger family, you may find some test equipment sold by us that have not yet transitioned to the Megger identity system. Don’t worry – our top priority is ensuring that product quality is right. We’ll get round to making sure the colours are the same later.
How the greatest brands in test and measurement came together
Our systems are geared to keeping things local – localised engineering, localised marketing, localised decision-making. Our employees are proud of the companies and brands that go to make our company history and many of these names are still trademarks or registered trademarks of the company in many countries.
Delivery & Collection Information
We use next day couriers to deliver all our test instruments. That means it doesn’t matter if you’re 2 or 200 miles away, we can have the test equipment you need, delivered first thing, next day.
When you have finished with the test equipment we can arrange for the same courier to collect it from you.
We also offer a same day delivery service for when you really need the test equipment urgently.
