ST3123 Double Clamp Earth Resistance & Resistivity Tester
Double Clamp Earth Resistance Measurements with2, 3 Wires, Auto Range
Earth Resistivity (ρ) Measurement using WENNER method
* High test current up to 20A.
* Advanced Filtering method (based on FFT Fast Fourier Transform) reduces noise interference for obtaining stable measurements.
* Automatic and Manual selection of the Test Current Frequency in four bands (94/105/111/128Hz). In Automatic mod.
* Warning for excessive noise and high Auxiliary Earth Spikes resistance.
* Large Graphic Display with backlight for readings in poorly illuminated areas.
* Up to 999 measurement results can be saved in the memory and recalled on the display.
* The stored results can be transferred to a PC using software and a USB adaptor which are not included.
Earth Resistance Measurement
1: Earth resistance measurement with 2, 3wires and six ranges covering measurements from 0.03Ω to 19.99kΩ.
2: Also ideal for large earthing systems by the considerable test current of 20mA (max) yield-ing a high resolution of 0.001Ω on 2Ω range.
3: Advanced Filtering method (based on “FFT” Fast Fourier Transform) reduces noise interference for obtaining stable measurements.
4: Warnings for excessive noise and high Auxiliary Earth Spikes resistance.

Earth Resistivity Measurement
* The earth resistivity measurement is useful for soil surveys to establish the optimum earth electrode system design and site, to avoid extra cost of re-working electrode installations. It can be also suitable for geological investigations.
* Earth resistivity measurement is automatically calculated after having set the distance between Auxiliary Earth Spikes.
Measurement Method for Earth Resistivity (ρ)
Stick the four Auxiliary Earth Spikes into the ground deeply. They should be aligned at an interval of 1-100m. The depth should be 5% or less of the interval between the spikes. Software
The stored results can be transferred to a PC via USB adaptor.
* Up to 999 measurement results can be saved in memory.
* Data can be converted to CSV files.
