Cropico MTS

Cropico MTS Series

A test standard for milliohmmeters with 4 terminals and +/- full scale values

The MTS range of milliohmmeter test standards are designed for the simple and easy calibration of low resistance ohmmeters and Kelvin/Thomson bridges. The four terminal resistance values are switch selected and provision is made + and - full scale values. A four terminal zero value may also be selected, thus making zero and full scale calibration of instruments simplicity itself.

Technical Specifications - MTS1A

19Ω ±0.01% 0.43 150mA <10ppm/°C
10Ω ±0.01% 0.45 212mA <10ppm/°C
1.9Ω ±0.01% 0.475 500mA <10ppm/°C
±0.01% 0.56 750mA <10ppm/°C
100mΩ ±0.01% 0.625 2.5A <10ppm/°C
10mΩ ±0.05% 0.25 5A <10ppm/°C
1mΩ ±0.05% 0.1 10A <10ppm/°C

Three models are available, the MTS1A which has 11 values from 1mΩ to 100kΩ and the MTS2 has 10 values from 400µΩ to 400kΩ, making it ideally suited for the calibration of digital instruments with a long scale length of 4,000 or 6,000 count. The MTS3 is designed for easy calibration for units such as the Cropico DO7010, where a pulsed current is produced. The test standards are housed in a rugged bench portable aluminium case with tilt handle. The internal standards are manufactured from premium quality resistance wire with low temperature and load coefficients. The units are supplied complete with a calibration certificate.
