A low resistance ohmmeter can be used to identify many of the issues that stem from poor electrical connections. Contact resistance is a term used to characterize the quality of an electrical connection. Electrical bonds are a component of everything that requires a connection to an electrical path such as junction boxes,bus work, circuit breakers and switches to name a few. Poor connections can lead to excessive heating, premature equipment failure and damage to the electrical system itself. A good testing and maintenance program will include a low resistance ohmmeter to ensure the quality of electrical connections.
