MFT1553 On-site helps more electricians with the 17th Edition certification


Contractors using the Bluetooth® MFT1553 which downloads test results direct to 17th Edition certificates running in PowerSuite On-site on their laptop, PDA or smart-phone are saving hours making out certificates at the end of the day.

  • The fast-track from inspection to invoice
  • Complete the certificates as you go there on site
  • Save hours transferring results to fair copy certificates

From test to certificate

Yes, the new MFT1553 multifunction installation tester from Megger completely eliminates the time consuming and error-prone chore of entering test results manually into certificates. Instead, the innovative new tester sends results via a Bluetooth wireless link straight to test certificates in computers, Pocket PCs, Palms PDAs or even Smart-phones that are running Megger PowerSuite On-site, a new addition to the Megger software range.

Flexibility when filling

There is no fixed sequence for testing provided the cursor is on the line of the certificate appropriate to the circuit, users can specify the location in the certificate they want a particular result to appear from the test instrument.

Bluetooth enabled

The Bluetooth-capable MFT1553, which is the latest addition to the UK’s best-selling family of multifunction testers, provides all of the advanced features offered by other models in the range, including automatic RCD testing, which dramatically reduces testing time by making it unnecessary for users to continually walk between the RCD and the tester while the tests are being carried out.

17th Edition ready

Supplied as standard with a full calibration certificate, MFT1500 series testers combine, in a single compact and robust instrument, all of the testing facilities needed to meet the requirements of the IEE Wiring Regulations both 17th Editions and Part P of the Building Regulations. They feature an ergonomic design that was developed in close consultation with electrical contractors and have colour-coded controls which make them easy to use, allowing tests to be performed rapidly with minimal risk of mistakes.

PowerSuite On-site software

Offering the only test management software package supports IET, NICEIC, ECA, SELECT, ELECSA and NAPIT certificates to BS7671:2008, the purchase of electronic certificates and the automatic posting of your building control notifications, PowerSuite On-site can take hours off your working day. What’s more by running the certificates on a mobile device you have the benefit of doing the certification in front of the customer, adding to your credibility.

There is the possibility of doing what some users are doing, printing the certificate and invoice on site, and leaving with a cheque to bank.

MFT1553 On-site wins 3 major awards

Megger has scooped yet another award to add to the two prestigious trophies it picked up at the Electrical Industry Awards 2007 in early October and the AECI best new product award taken earlier in the year.

The latest award was presented at the Select Electrotechnical awards 2007 in Glasgow. The MFT1553 On-site won the best new product category.

SELECT Electrotechnical Awards 2007

New Product of the Year was won by Megger MFT1553. Downloading test results from a tester to a laptop computer is nothing new – but the new MFT1553 On-site package takes this a step further. Now, it is no longer necessary to have a cabled connection between the tester and the computer and the certificate is filled out on-site.

Electrical Industry Awards 2007

Test and Measurement Product of the Year was won by Megger MFT1553. Instruments that transfer test results automatically to a laptop computer are nothing new – but the new MFT1553 On-site package takes this a step further. Now, it is no longer necessary to have a cabled connection between the test instrument and the computer. With the MFT1553 package, all data is transferred via a wireless Bluetooth connection.

The Awards were judged by a panel of independent experts from such respected bodies as the NICEIC, BEAMA and the ECA, as well as editorial representatives from Electrical Times magazine.

Association of Electrical Contractors (Ireland)

In May the MFT1553 On-site won the Best New Product Award at the AECI in Athlone.
