Johnson County High School Receives Donation of 30 Digital Multimeters from Megger for the Third Year in a Row

30 seniors in the school’s Construction Department receive testers upon graduation

Megger recently donated 30 AVO830 digital Trms multimeters for the third year in a row to graduating high school seniors in the Construction Department at Johnson County High School (JCHS) located in Mountain City, Tennessee. These digital multimeters offer a voltage range up to 1000V Trms and are designed to reduce the need for additional auxiliary instrumentation, like phase rotation detectors and non-contact voltage wands.

“Many of the students who received the AVO830 are headed to either a vocational school or university to pursue a career in electrical engineering,” said Lee Cole, construction teacher at JCHS. “Having this tester in their toolbox from day one will be a big help to them. Not only will it help them when working on a project, but it will also save them from incurring a big expense as they embark on their career.”

Students in Cole’s class learn about the AVO830 and how it works. He does an entire lesson demonstrating the unit’s wide variety of test functions, important safety features, and compares it with competitor models. “I show my students the features I like best about Megger’s multimeter, including the no contact voltage, its phase checker, as well as the temperature reading feature. The best part of the AVO830 is that it is three different meters all in one,” said Cole.

Designed for use by professional electricians, technicians, service personnel and engineers, the AVO830 is compact, well-built, and reliable. It can be used for a wide range of applications, including maintenance of electrical equipment and applications, service on white goods and electrical utilities.

“We cannot thank Megger enough for its generous donation and investing in the future of our students. We really appreciate it,” said Cole.
