The Megger MFT1721, a mid-range 18th edition multifunction tester from Megger, excels in testing both single and three-phase installations found in various settings including domestic, industrial, and commercial environments. Additionally, each unit in the 17XX series, including the MFT1721, features a Max. Zs function, simplifying the process of testing final ring circuits efficiently.
Emphasizing the renowned Megger build quality, every Multifunction Tester is engineered for durability. It withstands harsh conditions such as drops, bounces, rain exposure, and even remains resilient when connected across phases or to a live circuit while locked on. Moreover, this robustness is complemented by a 3-year warranty (with product registration), ensuring complete peace of mind. The MFT1721 also boasts an IP54 rating, protecting it against dust and moisture.
Comparing the MFT1711 and MFT1721 reveals that the MFT1721 is tailored for engineers needing broader testing capabilities in their daily work. The following features come standard with the Megger MFT1721:
- A 100V insulation test range.
- A 15mA continuity test.
- A 2 Wire Phase to Phase L-L 50 V ~ 500 V loop test.
- An R1 + R2 value measurement.
- A 3 Phase RCD (no earth) capability.
- A 1000mA RCD test feature.
- Phase rotation detection.
- Type B (pure DC) RCDs compatibility.
- An SP5 switch probe for remote testing.
These additional features effectively ‘future-proof’ the device, minimizing the likelihood of encountering untestable installation parts. For instance, a 100V insulation range and 15mA continuity test are ideal for inductive loads or power conservation. Type B RCD testing is particularly beneficial for solar PV installations and three-phase systems.
In the realm of measurements, the Megger MFT1721 offers:
- True RMS voltage measurements for more reliable readings on noisy circuits.
- Insulation testing with selectable test ranges (100V / 250V / 500V or 1kV), fully protected against live circuits.
- RCD Type testing with the ability to test various RCDs at different multiples.
- An RCD Test feature with an auto test to save time, a ramp test to determine actual RCD trip currents, and compatibility with Type B RCDs and 3 phase RCD (no earth).
- Continuity and resistance testing with 200mA and 15mA test ranges, and an adjustable buzzer threshold.
Finally, the MFT1721 provides comprehensive loop testing capabilities, including 2 and 3 Wire Non-Tripping L-PE, 2 Wire Hi Current L-N, and 2 Wire Phase to Phase L-L testing, along with PSCC, PFC, Max. Zs Display, and R1 + R2 Value measurement.

The Megger 1721 has been designed to be as simple and comfortable to use for long periods of time. Additionally, a TEST button features on both the right and left hand side, along with a large, central back lit screen. Crucially, the MeggerMFT1721 is also an extremely light weight tester at only 1kg when the batteries are fitted, ensuring ease of use while in the field. A neck strap is also included.
