2 and 3 Point Ground Resistance Meters from Megger

by Protec Tech Team April 17, 2018

With the advancement in ground resistance measurement technologies, much of the test equipment currently available for this purpose now provide the convenience of Clamp-On technologies that are in some applications preferable to the traditional 2-3 point testing methods. These clamp-on ground resistance meters provide the potential to save valuable time and effort by inducing a current into the ground through electromagnetic coupling. The jaws then sense the voltage drop around the loop and automatically calculate the ground resistance using Ohm's Law.

Rent the AEMC 6416 to Measure Ground Electrode System Resistance

by Protec Tech Team September 26, 2016

When verifying grounding resistance, a clamp-on tester makes it simple by simply clamping the sensor around the connection at the ground rod, and reading the resistance on the display of the instrument.


Rent AEMC 6416 Clamp-On Ground Resistance Tester for Easy Diagnostics

by Protec Tech Team August 16, 2016

Performing resistance measurement of a grounding system ensures that the grounding rod has good contact with the earth. The resistance of the grounding system to the earth may be affected by several factors like dry ground, partially uprooted stake, corroded connections and broken ground leads.

If you are looking for a fast and easy way to measure ground resistance, a clamp-on tester might be answer. This type of ground resistance meter measures resistance through a set of jaws. The jaws contain sensors which accurately measure ground resistance.


Test Ground Resistance and Bonding with the AEMC 6416

by Protec Tech Team May 26, 2016

It's possible to eliminate many power quality problems with proper wiring, good grounds, and the bonding to the ground system. Testing grounds and bonding should always be part of any power quality troubleshooting strategy, and one effective method is to use a clamp-on ground tester.


Rent Megger Ground Resistance Measurement Equipment from Protec

by Protec Tech Team April 26, 2016

A ground is a crucial part of an electrical system, as it routes electrical current to the earth and helps reduce the risk of electrical shock to personnel. The grounding system also routes unwanted electromagnetic interference (EMI) induced in the electrical system to ensure a stable facility.


Specifications for the AEMC 6416 Clamp-On Ground Resistance Tester

by Protec Tech Team April 13, 2016

Clamp-on ground resistance testers can be used in multi-grounded systems without disconnecting or de-energizing the ground system under test. The AEMC 6416 Clamp-On Ground Resistance Tester clamps around the grounding electrode or conductor and measures the resistance to ground.

By performing measurements on intact ground systems, the user also verifies the quality of the grounding connections and bonds. Resistance and continuity of grounding loops around pads and buildings may also be measured.
