It is important to standardize the testing procedure (ohmmeter used and temperature of the heater when tested), as the rise in ohms should be a gradual change but will vary if the heater or room temperature changes.
The rugged unit is part of Cropico's digital micro ohmmeter range.
The fact that an ordinary Ohmmeter can pick up electrical currents all over the body seems unimportant despite the fact that biochemistry has not resolved the problem of ill health.
The probe is expected to detect the chloride penetration depth by way of measuring the electrical resistance of the thin wire using Ohmmeter, as illustrated in Figure 1.
If you suspect a short, use an ohmmeter to test for it like this:
Disconnect the heater wires and test between the terminals using an ohmmeter. A good element will read 9 to 12 ohms.
Be prepared with the proper instruments and tools: a reliable amprobe for measuring voltage and current; megohmmeter for checking insulation resistance or detecting water intrusion; and an ohmmeter for measuring and checking continuity of windings.
I take it in appropriating $50 they were "Sensitive" <like an ohmmeter? or is it with 2 m's?>, my chairman waiting until the last minute to <quoting him> "advise" the Dean of the Faculty, who of course hadn't probably noticed the request, tho it's the Dean of course who approved.
Another method for checking probe planarity is by using an ohmmeter. To do this, short the signal and ground probe tips by pressing them to the contact substrate, verifying both probes are touching.
A quick check with an ohmmeter led me to an excellent solution.
I then pulled out an ohmmeter and checked to see if the cables might be mislabeled.
Another method to determine when a cut is successfully completed is to use an ohmmeter connected to either end of the area to be cut; once the cut is completed, the device will indicate the discontinuity of current.
