User-friendly and accurate. Use the on-board memory and data logging features to make your work more efficient. Jayzee — September 15, Petroelectrician — April 23, We have used this tool for simple functions like only installing one ground rod and verifying reading to ground on a service upgrade or new install, to inspecting motor grounding.

On a motor grounding job where hp motors were failing on a continuous basis, we were able to pinpoint the lack of proper grounding that was causing harmonics and energizing armature shaft, to the point where it was reading v.

On that job alone this tool proved invaluable and allowed the customer to save thousands on downtime and predictive maintenance. If you are an industrial electrician or even a commercial or residential guy there are many applications that this tool will become a gem in your tool-bag that in previous times would be impossible to read without shunts and extra setup….

Just clamp it on and take live readings without breaking connections, I highly recommend it. I have used the ground resistance tester for many applications. While making surge protection installatons, used to check grounding electrode resistance measurements.

I had a inspector require me to add an addtional ground rod to a traffic signal installation service, until I proved that measurement was showing only 4 ohms at the cabinet.

Yes they do need to be calibrated, but all measurement devices need to checked for their accuracies once a year. Txwireman — November 30, This is a very handy product ot own. It works great when you follow the direction. Amprobe In reply to Txwireman — November 29, All Amprobe products are calibrated at the time of production. So products are calibrated and adhere to their specifications at the time of sale. Additionally, at any time, for new and used products, we can provide a detailed NIST traceable calibration certificate, which requires retesting of the product.

We record the test results and provide them on a detailed calibration certificate. Please note that this is an additional service, we charge for. Txwireman — November 29, This is a good tool to have. It is easy to use when you follow the directions. The customer service people were of no help to get this tool calibrated. Coy60 — November 16, Great piece of equipment we use it regularly to check our ground rod resistance easy to use great tool.

Accurate ground resistance measurement from 0. Rated 4. Find a Store. Rated 5 out of 5. Chase the inspector!!!!! Great instrument. An advantage to have available. Rated 4 out of 5. DGCA This is a good tool to have. Add a review Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
