Resistance Measurement

  • Re|sis|tance (Sing.); Unit: Ω
    The electrical resistance of an electrical conductor is the opposition to the passage of an electric current through that conductor. The inverse quantity is electrical conductance, the ease with which an electric current passes. Electrical resistance shares some conceptual parallels with the notion of mechanical friction.

Solutions

Resistance can be measured directly by using measuring amplifiers of the MA-Series (MA-UNI) and the MAL-Series (MAL-RK1). The output signal of the measuring amplifiers match the measuring systems of BMC Messysteme GmbH in a perfect way.

  • Solution 1
  • Solution 2

With the miniature measurement amplifiers of the MAL-Series it is very easy to connect from your sensors to the measurement systems of BMC Messsysteme Gmbh. With our 5B compatible measurement amplifiers these signals can even be galvanically isolated from the measurement system.

Signal Condition

Resistance measurements are often applied for the acquisition of mechanical values od temepratures. To measure resistances constant current of e.g. 100µA respectively 1mA are used. Constant current is quite often provided by a measuring amplifier, which amplifies the signla, too. The voltage resulting from the parameters constant current and versatile resistance is proportional.

Sensors

When choosing a sensor wearout and faults through resistance tainted connecting cables have to be carefully avoided. The achieved precision is ususally not very high.
