VI. Operating Method
1.Boot up
Boot , DO NOT press the trigger, don’t open jaws, nor
clamp any wire
Boot complete, show “OL Ω”, then press the trigger,
open jaws, clamp the measured wire
Before booting up, the trigger should be pressed for
a couple of times to ensure the jaws are well closed.
Boot, must maintain clamp meter natural resting
state, don’t flip Clamp, don’t be imposed outside
force on the jaw, otherwise can not guarantee the
accuracy of measurement

Press POWER Key to Boot, first, automated testing LCD,
show all of its symbols (Figure 1). Meanwhile the instrument
auto-calibration, after boot displayed "OL Ω", automatically enter
the resistance measurement mode (Figure 2).If there is no normal
boot self-calibration, instrument will show "Er" symbol, said boot
error. need to check the cause and reboot (Figure 3).

However, when measured with the
test ring, still gives the correct result, indicating Clamp measured
only in the high-value (for example, more than 100Ω) has large
errors, When measuring a small resistance retains the original
Accuracy, the user can rest assured use.

If the user thinks it necessary, the test can be done with the ring as
shown in the following figure 5. Its show value should be consistent
with the normal value on the test ring (5.1Ω).
The normal value on the test ring is the
value at a temperature of 20°C.
It is normal to find the difference of
numerical 1 word between the show

For instance: If the nominal value of
test ring is 5.1Ω, it would be normal
showing 5.0Ω or 5.2Ω.

VII. Measurement Principle
1. Principle of Resistance Measurement
The basic principle of ETCR in the measurement of resistance is to
measure the loop resistance, as shown in the figure below. The jaw
part of the Meter is comprised of voltage coil and current coil. The
voltage coil provides excitation signal, and will induce a potential E
on the measured loop. Under the effects of the potential E, the
current I can generate on the measured
loop. The Meter will measure E & I, and
the measured resistance R can be
obtained by the following formula.
2. Principle of Current Measurement
The basic principle of C+ in the measurement of current is the
same with that of the measurement of resistance, as shown in the
figure below. The AC current on the measured
wire, through the current magnetic loop
and coil, can generate a induction
current I1; The Meter will measure I1,
and the measured current I can be
obtained by the following formula.
Where: n is the turn ratio of the secondary side vs. primary side.
-18-
Ⅷ. Measurement Method of Earth Resistance
1. Multi-Point Grounding System
As for the multi-point grounding system (such as electricity
transmission
tower
grounding
system,
grounding
cable
communications systems, certain buildings, etc.), They usually
pass the overhead ground wire (cable shielding layer) connected
to form a grounding system.
As the Meter is in the above measurement, its equivalent electric
circuit is shown in the figure below:
Where: R1 is the target grounding resistance.
R0 is the equivalent resistance of the other entire tower
grounding resistances paralleled.
Although strictly on the theoretical grounding, because of the
existence of so-called "mutual resistance”, R0 is not the usual
parallel value in the sense of electrical engineering (slightly higher
than its IEC parallel output value). But because a tower-grounding
hemisphere was much smaller than the distance between the
towers, and with a great number of locations after all, R0 is much
smaller than R1. Therefore, it can be justified to assume R0=0 from
-19-
an engineering perspective. In this way, the resistance we
measured should be R1.
Times of comparing tests in different environments and different
occasions with the traditional method proved that the above
assumption is entirely reasonable.
2. Limited Point Grounding System
This is also quite common. For example, in some towers, five
towers are linked with each other through overhead ground wire;
Besides, the grounding of some of the buildings is not an
independent grounding grid, but several grounding bodies
connected with each other through the wire.
Under such circumstances, the above R0 regarded as 0, will yield
more error on the results of the measurement.
Due to the same reasons mentioned above, we may ignore the
impact of the mutual resistance; and the equivalent resistance of
the grounding resistance paralleled is calculated by the usual
sense. Thus, for the grounding system of N (N is smaller, but larger
than 2) grounding bodies, it can offer N equations:
R1 +
R2 +
1
1 + 1 + ......+ 1
R2 R3
RN
= R1T
1
= R2T
1 1
1
+
+ ...... +
R1 R3
RN
.
.
-20-
.
RN +
1
= RNT
1
1
1
+
+ ...... +
R1 R2
R( N −1)
Where: R1、R2、……RN are grounding resistances of N grounding
bodies.
R1T、R2T、……RNT are the resistances measured with the
Meter in the different grounding branches.
It is nonlinear equations with N unknown numbers and N equations.
It indeed has a definite solution, but it is very difficult to solve the
issue artificially, even impossible when N is larger.
Therefore, you’re expected to buy the Limited-Point Grounding
System Solution software produced by this Company. Users can
use the office computer or notebook computer to carry out
solutions.
In principle, in addition to ignoring the mutual resistance, this
method does not have the measurement error caused by
neglecting R0.
However, users need to pay attention to that: in response to the
number of the grounding bodies mutually linked in your grounding
system, it is necessary to measure the same number of the testing
values for calculating of the program, not more or less. And the
program would output the same number of grounding resistance
values.
3. Single-Point Grounding System
From the measuring principle, ETCR series Meter can only
-21-
measure the loop resistance, and the single-point grounding is not
measured. However, users will be able to use a testing line very
near to the earth electrode of the grounding system to artificially
create a loop for testing. The following presented is two kinds of
methods for the single-point grounding measurement by use of the
Meter. These two methods can be applied to the occasions beyond
the reach of the traditional voltage-current testing methods.
⑴.Two-Point Method
As shown in the figure below, in the vicinity of the measured
grounding body RA, find an independent grounding body of better
grounding state RB (for example, near a water pipe or a building).
RA and RB line will connect to each other using a single testing line.
As the resistance value measured by the Meter is the value of the
series resistance from the testing line and two grounding
resistances.
RT=RA + RB + RL
Where: RT is the resistance value measured with the Meter.
RL is the resistance value of the testing line. Meter can
measure out the resistance value by connecting the test lines with
both ends.
So, if the measurement value of the Meter is smaller than the
-22-
allowable value of the grounding resistance, then the two
grounding bodies are qualified for grounding resistance.
(2) Three-Point Method
As shown in the figure below, in the vicinity of the measured
grounding body RA, find two independent grounding bodies of
better grounding state RB and RC.
First, link RA and RB with a test line; use the Meter to get the first
reading R1.
Second, have RB and RC linked up, as shown in the following figure.
Use the Meter to get the second reading R2.
Third, have RC and RA linked up, as shown in the following figure.
Use the Meter to get the third reading R3.
-23-
In the above three steps, the reading measured in each step is the
value of the two series grounding resistance. In this way, we can
easily calculate the value of each grounding resistance:
From:
We get:
R1=RA+RB
R2=RB+RC
R3=RC+RA
RA=(R1+R3-R2)÷2
This is the grounding resistance value of the grounding body RA.
To facilitate the memory of the above formula, these three
grounding bodies scan be viewed as a triangle; then the measured
resistance is equivalent to the value of the resistance values of the
adjacent edges plus or minus resistance value of the opposite
sides, and divided by 2.
As the reference points, the grounding resistance values of the
other two grounding bodies are:
RB=R1-RA
RC=R3-RA
