siemens

 (S) [se´menz]
the SI unit of conductance; it is the conductance of one ampere per volt in a body with one ohm resistance.

sie·mens (S),

(sē'menz),
The SI unit of electrical conductance; the conductance of a body with an electrical resistance of 1 ohm, allowing 1 ampere of current to flow per volt applied; equal to 1 mho.
Synonym(s): mho
