Earth resistance tester – Metrohm E1612

Now available from Martindale Electric is the new Metrohm E1612, a handheld and portable earth resistance tester. Claimed to be exceptionally easy and simple to use, the unit is microprocessor controlled and includes advanced safety features, while its large integral LCD screen shows both test options and results.

The new E1612 is powered by 8 x 1.5V LR6/AA batteries, which are included, as is a kit with four spikes and connecting cables, all enclosed in a tough and durable carry case. Martindale says it also supplies a fully illustrated instruction book, showing how to carry out earth testing with two and three spikes, and how to measure soil resistivity using four spikes.

Described as compact and lightweight, the E1612 measures 250mm (L) x 190mm (W) and weighs less than 1.5kg complete with batteries, making it ideally suited to field use, says the company.

Available exclusively from Martindale Electric, the E1612 is said to conform to BS EN 610-10-1 CAT IV 300V. All Martindale Electric products come complete with a two-year warranty.
