Product description

The insulation monitor RN 5897/020 of the VARIMETER IMD family provides best and up to date insulation monitoring of modern IT systems in an optimum and state of the art way fulfilling the relevant standards. The device can be used in the most flexible way for AC, DC and AC/DC systems. Mains areas of applications are non-earthed DC charging stations for electric vehicles with mains voltages up to DC 1000 V. The adjustment of the setting values is simple and user friendly done on 2 rotary switches on the front of the device. Via display and LEDs the measured value, device parameters and device status are indicated easy to read. With a sealable transparent cover the device is protectet against manipulation.
