Aegis Test Equipment?

Post by MikeNZ »

Hey Guys,
What are your thoughts on this sort of test gear?
I was wondering (having never bought this brand before) if it is any good.

I'm after a Loop Impedance tester and this one seemed to be the goods:

Now, I already own a Megohm-meter and an RCD tester, so I'm not really in the market for one of them AVO multi-tester things.
And I don't really do much in the way of Earth Electrode testing either.

Of course, I should ask what you guys are using for your loop-testing, if not the Multi-tester combo thing?

I totally get that test equipment is expensive and yes you should be buying good gear, if you want it to last.
"Buy Well, Buy Once" I was told as an apprentice, with the inherent low wages at the time.

Any advice please, is the Aegis brand any good or not?

Cheers,
Mike T.

Any sort of response on this?
I was merely asking the question.

We have one of these for our linesman, they are basic are designed more for those that simply record a result without knowing if it's a good or bad result.

I would use it if there was nothing else, given a choice a reasonable MFT would be way better

I like the look of their analogue insulation resistance and continuity tester. Half the price of a Kyoritsu analogue tester.
