Test products: Megger recently donated a low resistance ohmmeter to students in the Wind Energy and Turbine Technology and the Electrical Technology programs at Iowa Lakes Community College. The DLRO200 is a versatile piece of equipment that provides test currents from 10 amps up to 200 amps and offers the highest quality in accuracy, reliability and safety.

David S. Danner, director of USA distribution and sales for Megger, who has been working with Iowa Lakes Community College said, “The College is at the forefront of new technology and improved electrical service, and Megger is pleased to be an integral part of the education process at Iowa Lakes.
