BT51 low resistance ohmmeter from Megger makes the measurements by passing a current through the conductor under test and also monitoring the voltage across it.

The test current is limited by a simple current limiting circuit and is measured by monitoring the voltage across a resistor.

The test current is maintained at a nominal 2 A and as the measurement is ratiometric, the reading is unaffected by any current variations.

  • High test current
  • Four terminal measurements
  • Two measuring ranges (2000 m? an 20,00 m?) and maximum resolution of 0,01 m?
  • Protected against inadvertent connection to the mains supply

The BT51 low resistance ohmmeter has a 31/2 digit LED display to facilitate use in low light levels.

Two LED's on the front panel indicate battery condition and whether test current is flowing when a measurement is being made.

A neon lamp indicates the presence of a dangerous voltage if the test spikes are accidentally placed across a live circuit. This warning takes place whether or not the BT51 low resistance ohmmeter has been switched on.

The BT51 low resistance ohmmeter is protected up to 240 V a.c. by a relay circuit that keeps the instrument in a safe mode isolated from the mains supply.

Again, this safeguard is effective whether or not the BT51 low resistance ohmmeter has been switched on.
