The MPK215R high-current micro-ohmmeter is a portable, microprocessor-controlled instrument. Has optimized filters and protections for measurements in electrical substations. Can be used to accurately measure very low contact resistances of high voltage circuit-breakers and switches, busbars, etc., with test currents from 5 A up to 200 A. It employs the 4 terminals-method (U/I measuring principle) to avoid errors caused by test leads and their contact resistances.
The MPK215R has a cooling system that allows making a large number of consecutive tests without activation of thermal protection. Under normal ambient conditions (25 ºC) it can perform up to 30 consecutive tests with duration of 1 minute and 1 minute interval, time usually spent for repositioning the cables in another test point.
Measurement accuracy is guaranteed by a state-of-the-arts signal amplification system, offset-free and of high long-term stability. Resistances readings are shown in the alphanumeric display with up to 4½ digits-resolution. It allows to measure resistances up to 1 Ω, and the best resolution is 0.1 µΩ.
The high-current generation system is based on modern technology that allows to significantly decrease both its weight (approx. 11 kg) and size. The cabinet is made of plastic material highly resistant to impacts and to environmental challenges. Internal thermal sensors in all sensitive components avoid any damage caused to the instrument due to overheating.
This is a strong but lightweight equipment, and may be easily carried by one person. It is water-resistant and can be used under severe weather conditions (IP54 with closed lid) offering an excellent performance working both in the laboratory and out in the field.
