Measuring Winding Resistance
Testing Winding Quality with Resistance Measurement
What can resistance values tell us?
- Incorrect Wire Thickness
- Incorrect Number of Turns
- Winding Shorts
Performance Required for Resistance Measurement
- Low-Resistance Measurement When measuring large windings, where low resistance values are increasingly becoming the norm, values must be managed on the order of 10 μΩ.
- Ambient Temperature Correction It's essential to perform temperature correction since wire resistance values vary with temperature.
