PROMET R300 and R600 high-accuracy, high-precision ohm meters deliver an adjustable test current of up to 600 A which is independent of the supply voltage.
These measuring devices utilize the four-wire resistance measurement method, enabling them to meet the most stringent accuracy requirements. State-of-the-art power electronics coupled with a robust design guarantee excellent reliability for stationary and portable use in switching stations or industrial environments. PROMET ohm meters feature a modern operating concept, an interface to the test systems of the ACTAS product range and external control for use with test stands, making them both flexible and versatile.
Assessing the condition of contact systems
Regular measurements of the contact resistance allow an accurate assessment of the condition of contact systems. Using PROMET R300 / R600, excessively high transfer resistances resulting from poor connections can be identified by measuring the static contact resistance. This ensures that maintenance requirements can be identified at an early stage and down times kept to a minimum.
Constant test currents up to 600 A
PROMET R300 / R600 ohm meters use state-of-the-art power electronics to generate a freely adjustable test current of up to 600 A which is fully independent of the supply voltage. The resistance is determined by measuring the voltage drop using four-wire measuring technology.
Voltage drop and test current are measured via high-precision measurement inputs so that resistances in the μΩ range can be determined with maximum precision. Because PROMET ohm meters can output currents for an unlimited period of time, they can also be used as current sources.
Determination of resistance at three measurement points
Because the device is equipped with three voltage measurement inputs, parallel measurements can be carried out at three measurement points in order to perform a static measurement of the resistance of three main contacts or assess the quality of connections, for example. Contact resistance determination with earthing on both sides
Thanks to parallel measurement of the earth current, the resistance can be determined precisely for the main contacts of switchgear devices even with earthing on both sides. The earth current is measured with a current clamp and automatically taken into account by the system during resistance determination. Not only would disconnecting the earth conductor make carrying out tests more complicated, it would also be detrimental to safety.
Measurements with temperature compensation
PROMET R300 / R600 can determine resistances with temperature compensation. The temperature at the measurement point is measured using a sensor and the resistance value is calculated taking the reference temperature of 20°C into account. This means that values can be directly compared. A database with the parameters necessary for temperature compensation is saved in the device and can be extended as and when needed.
