Rent Vanguard Auto-Ohm For Testing Low Resistances with High Accuracy

The Vanguard Auto-Ohm’s operation is based on the electrical relationships described by Ohm’s law: R=V/I, where I is a known current and V is the dc voltage measured across the unknown resistance (typically, a circuit breaker’s contacts).

Since the current (user selected) through the unknown resistance is known and the voltage across the unknown resistance is measured by a precision voltmeter, the resistance read-out can be calculated using Ohm’s law.

The Vanguard Auto-Ohm test voltage is supplied by a true 5Vdc power supply. The true DC test current is selectable in 2-amp steps, from 10 to 100 amperes for the Auto-Ohm 100 and from 10 to 200 amperes for Auto-Ohm-200. The test current is automatically ramped up and down slowly. This current ramp rate is programmable from 5 seconds to 30 seconds. The voltmeter test leads run separately from the current-bearing test leads to the resistive load thus eliminating any I•R voltage drop error in the current cables.

These Auto-Ohm features make very precise micro-ohm measurements possible without having to calculate compensations for current lead resistance errors.
