Megger donation benefits energy-focused programs
Iowa Lakes Community College officials credit private-sector investments for enhancing opportunities on campus.
Professionals serve on the program advisory committees, create scholarship opportunities and donate valuable equipment to help students find success.
David S. Danner is the director of USA distribution sales for Megger. He has been working with Iowa Community College since 2008 to provide students in the wind energy technology program with up-to-date, high-quality electrical testing equipment.
“Megger is pleased to be integrally involved with the educational process," Danner said. "To that end, we are proud to donate the DLRO200, a leading-edge low resistance ohmmeter, that promotes the highest quality in accuracy, reliability and, above all, safety."
The DLRO200 can provide test currents from 10 amps up to 200 amps. The portable device weighs less than 33 pounds. The high current capability and compact design makes this equipment suitable for testing circuit breaker contacts, switch contacts, busbar joints and other applications where high current is needed.
“Megger's outreach with our technology programs is a fine example of putting the tools of best practices in safety to work,” Sustainable Energy Resources and Technology Director Dan Lutat said.
Electrical technology program coordinator Doug Zemler said Danner is a great asset to the Iowa Lakes program.
“He ensures the students are getting their hands on some of the best equipment Megger has to offer,” Zemler said.
