The Megger I use is a China version, selectable in 250V, 500V and 1000V. Works great!
In regards to the width of the Knipex, did you grind/file it smaller, or does it fit in the slot of our 40mm and up stators?
Funny thing, yesterday I ordered the same Megger. It is pretty cheap, so no harm done, if it is not sufficient or fails.
Kind Regards ZT - TDR,
No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.(AE)
