Measuring Resistance of component in circuit Using Digital Multimeter - Electronics LAB

Measuring Resistance - Using Multi Meter

General precautions:
1. Measure resistance when components are not connected in a circuit.
2. Remember to ensure that the circuit under test is not powered on.
3. Ensure capacitors in a circuit under test are discharged.
4. Remember that diodes in a circuit will cause different readings in either direction.
5. Leakage path through fingers can alter readings in some cases.



Using Multimeter:
There are a few simple steps required to make a resistance measurement with a digital multimeter:


1. Select the resistance that needs to be measured and estimate what the resistance may be.


2. Insert the probes into the required sockets. The digital multimeter will have several sockets for the test probes. Insert these or check whether they are already in the correct sockets.

3. Turn on the multimeter.

4. Select the required range. When the digital multimeter is on, the required quantity that is voltage, current or resistance and its range can be selected. The range selected should be such that the best reading is obtained. Normally, the multimeter function switch will be labeled with the maximum resistance reading. Choose the one where the estimated value of resistance will be under but close to the maximum of the range. In this way, the most accurate resistance measurement can be made.

5. Make the measurement. The probes can be applied to both the two terminals of the resistor. The range can be adjusted if necessary. The value of the resistor is shown on the mutimeter display.

6. Turn off the multimeter:Once the resistance measurement has been made, the multimeter can be turned off to preserve the batteries. It is also wise to turn the function switch to a high voltage range. In this way, if the multimeter is used again for another type of reading, then no damage will be caused if it is inadvertently used without selecting the correct range and function





Comments

  1. In Resistance mode, even before test leads are connected to a component, a digital multimeter (DMM) automatically begins taking a resistance measurement. The MΩ symbol may appear in the display because resistance of open (unattached) test leads is very high. When the leads are connected to a component, a DMM automatically uses the Auto range mode to adjust to the best range. Pressing the Range button allows a technician to manually set the range.Thanks for the post. helpful indeed.

Motor Types- Special Types of Motor
1. Iron less or core-less rotor motorNothing in the principle of any of the motors described above requires that the iron (steel) portions of the rotor actually rotate. If the soft magnetic material of the rotor is made in the form of a cylinder, then (except for the effect of hysteresis) torque is exerted only on the windings of the electromagnets. Taking advantage of this fact is the core less or iron less DC motor, a specialized form of a PM DC motor. Optimized for rapid acceleration, these motors have a rotor that is constructed without any iron core. The rotor can take the form of a winding-filled cylinder, or a self-supporting structure comprising only the magnet wire and the bonding material. The rotor can fit inside the stator magnets; a magnetically soft stationary cylinder inside the rotor provides a return path for the stator magnetic flux.
