Vanguard‘s performance-oriented products are well suited for the utility industry. They are rugged, reliable, accurate, user friendly, and most are computer controlled. Computer control, with innovative programming, provides many automated testing functions.
Vanguard instruments eliminate tedious and time-consuming operations, while providing fast, complex, test-result calculations. Errors are reduced and the need to memorize long sequences of procedural steps is eliminated.
One widely used piece of Vanguard equipment is the Auto-Ohm 100A S3 Ampere Micro-Ohmmeter . The ohmmeter features microprocessor-controlled measuring of very low resistances ranging from 1 micro-ohm to 300 milli-ohms with high accuracy.
Field-portable, rugged, and easily operated by first-time users having a minimum of training, the Vanguard Auto-Ohm 100A features an LCD alpha/numeric display of the resistance measured. The one-knob controlled operation is logical and simple:
- Turning the knob scrolls through a menu of possible options (displays in sequence)
- Pressing the knob activates the selected function.
As its name implies, the Vanguard Auto-Ohm 100A operation is automatic, requiring little more from the user than connecting it to an unknown resistance and selecting the desired functions and its options. It automatically stores the last 3 resistance measurements, which can be displayed after testing.
