Megger PCITS 2000
This Primary Current Injection Test Set is rugged, self-contained and designed for operation by one person. The PCITS2000/2 is a two-wheeled unit (with a handle).
The test set has a separate hand-held controller connected by an expandable cable. This allows the operator to work close to a protective relay while controlling a test. The maximum output current is 2000 A a.c. at line frequency.
By changing the range switch, half the rated output can be obtained at twice the voltage. Additionally, a separate auxiliary voltage output of 250 V, 2 A a.c. or 125 V, 2 A a.c. is available for testing voltage operated relay coils or checking the magnetization characteristics of current transformers.
All outputs are fully variable and each test set has a nominal duty cycle when delivering full current and voltage. Continuous operation is possible at 40% of maximum current. Current and voltage outputs are varied automatically from the controller. The output current is supplied through wing nut terminals to the low inductance lead set (available optionally).
The voltage output has a separate pair of terminals. Each test set has a built-in timer which itself has three modes of operation ‘Forward’, ‘Run-back’ and ‘Dual’. These enable the function of a protective relay to be fully tested in regard to its operating times. The timer may be stopped by the contacts of the protection relay under test, or by the cessation of current flow or manually by the operator. The timer stop inputs accept either unenergised or a.c./d.c. energised relay contacts.
All current and voltage levels are shown on the dot-matrix liquid crystal display incorporated in the controller. The display also shows the elapsed time measured by the counter. The equipment is microprocessor controlled and three tactile keys on the control box take up the selected function allotted to them during the testing programme. These functions are indicated on the display. The display can be set to read in any of five languages, English, French, German, Italian and Spanish.
Circuit protection is by circuit breakers and fuses, and a thermal cut-out prevents overheating. Controlled switching ensures that, in the event of power failure or the thermal cut-out operating, the output cannot be re-energized until the controls are reset, thereby offering protection to the equipment and the operator.

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
Due to the weight of this test kit we use a specialist freight courier. Most areas of the UK are covered by a next day service.
We will arrange the same courier to collect the test kit from you once you have finished.
