Renting vs. Buying a DLRO

Faced with the difficult decision of whether or not it is best to buy or rent a DLRO? Then read on as we help interested clients make up their minds if it is ideal to just rent the device or buy it instead.


Nowadays almost everything can be rented from big items such as houses and cars to less big ticket items like tuxedos and movies. So it only stands to reason that items such as electrical testing equipment might also be available as a rental as well. 

When it comes to owning a DLRO, our clients must decide if it is really more cost efficient to just buy the device rather than rent it? 

First, let’s define what function a DLRO serves. The DLRO or digital low resistance ohmmeter allows the user to analyze and test insulation resistance and quarantine weakness in damaged cables and equipment. Power loss mainly indicates that the electrical systems must work harder in order to continually supply voltage. The extra stress placed on equipment due to power loss will eventually cause the slow degradation of the whole system.

One of the most reliable units of electrical testing equipment that provides digital low resistance ohmmeters is Raytech and Vanguard  test equipment is Raytech available through our rental and purchase programs. The equipment is highly durable and accurate with every use and can easily determine digital measurements with output ranges from 10A to 200AA. Consider buying this test equipment only if you are intending to use the device frequently. However, if you’re just using it periodically, then renting it may be the best option. 

Additionally, renting this equipment allows your company to preserve capital to be used in your business for other expenses while at the same time our company keeps the equipment calibrated and in tip top condition while in our rental program.
