High Current Low Resistance Testing with a 100A DLRO
A 10 ampere Digital Low Resistance Ohmmeter is sufficient for many low resistance measurement applications. However, industry standards and guidelines will recommend, if not require a minimum of a 100 amps DC source when evaluating connections relating to medium and high voltage power system apparatus. Very small changes in contact resistance can have significant impacts on these apparatus in terms of how they perform in service. The use of higher current helps in the precision of the measurement and is therefore preferred when evaluating connections in higher voltage applications.
