Guide to Low Resistance Measurement

Article Type: News and views From: Aircraft Engineering and Aerospace Technology: An International Journal, Volume 80, Issue 3.

Cropico has published a new illustrative guide providing an overview of low- resistance measurement techniques, common causes of errors and advice on how to avoid them.

The free colour 34-page Guide to Low Resistance Measurement features tables of wire and cable characteristics, temperature coefficients and formulae to enable the user to select the appropriate measuring instrument and measurement technique.

The Guide includes a useful section explaining the role and importance of resistance measurement in the manufacture of electronic components, switches, relays, connectors cabling, electric motor and generators and fuses.

There is a handy glossary of terms at the end of the Guide, providing an easy- to-follow explanation of terms relating to both bonding and earth resistance, as well as common industry acronyms such as digital multimeter, device under test and American wire gauge.

Cropico's high-quality reputation goes back over 50 years and the company's range includes a wide range of digital microhmmeters, resistance decade boxes, test standards and temperature measurement solutions.

Copies of the Guide are available free of charge from Cropico customer services. Tel.: 0191 5878748 or fax 0191 586 0227, E-mail: or visit
