Auto-Ohm 10

Low Resistance Micro-Ohmmeter

The Vanguard Auto-Ohm 10 is a 10-ampere battery powered micro-ohmmeter designed for low-resistance-measuring applications such as the measurement of resistance in circuit breaker contacts, bushing contact joints, and welding joints. The unit is powered by four 3400mAh, 3.7Vdc Li-Ion rechargeable batteries. With these high capacity batteries, up to 2,900 tests per charge (10A/2 second duration) can be performed in the field. The Auto-Ohm 10 features a built-in charger that can charge the batteries when the unit is not in use.
The Auto-Ohm 10 features a rotary knob that is used to select either the “Contact Resistance” or “Transformer Resistance” test mode. The unit's backlit LCD screen (128 x 64 pixels) is viewable in both direct sunlight and low light level. Resistance readings are displayed on the LCD screen in micro-ohms, milliohms, or ohms.
  • High capacity Li-Ion batteries (perform up to 2,900 tests per charge (@ 10A/2 sec)
  • Built-in charger and line-power for continuous operation
  • Transformer winding resistance test mode
  • Contact resistance test mode
  • Protected to 600V
  • Lightweight (7.8 lbs. / 3.54 Kg)
