The model 6600A, the Automated Dual Source High Resistance Bridge from MI, is a game-changer in the world of resistance metrology. Based on the widely adopted Dual Source High Resistance Bridge principle, the 6600A delivers unmatched accuracy and stability in resistance measurements. This makes it the preferred choice for National Measurement Laboratories (NMIs) across the globe. With its multiple modes of operation, the 6600A offers versatile and flexible solutions to meet different resistance measurement needs.
|Only true ratio bridge mode for direct comparison of high resistance standards.||Customers get the very best in commercially available technology.|
|Offers only high resistance bridge with any voltage between 0 and 1000 V.||Customers are no longer limited in selected voltage through resistors.|
|Offers any ratio up to 1000:1.||Users can fully use any ratio up to 1000:1 and are not limited in ratio.|
|Voltages can be extended to 5000 V.||Allows users to extend voltage range beyond 1000 V up to 5000 V.|
|Based on NMI chosen technology.||Gives users the ability to use leading edge highest precision measurement technology.|
Using the Bridge mode, the UUT is measured live against a standard reference resistor where the ratio of the sources is equal to the ratio of resistances (E1/E2 = R1/R2). This is the most accurate and reliable type of measurement for high resistance. Lead set N-type to N-type cables are supplied.
Direct Mode and Insulation Resistance Mode
The Direct and Insulation Resistance modes which are made on the R1 (shown in Figure 1) channel allow users to perform teraohmmeter type measurements without the need of connecting a reference standard resistor where R = E1/I1. These modes are useful to determine the nominal value of the resistor, its settle time, leakage resistance, etc. N-type to N-type lead and N-type to alligator lead are supplied.
Available for use with the 6600A is the MI line of Matrix Scanners. The MI models 4610A and 4620A are 10- and 20-channel Coaxial Matrix Scanners are designed specifically for the use in High Resistance measurements. Using a proprietary (completely) coaxial design, leakage paths are minimized allowing measurements up to 1 TΩ with zero added uncertainty. N-type high and low connections are utilized for their superior isolation properties and labelled high and low on the rear panel. Additional cables are available for connection to various other types of High Resistance terminals such as BPO and Triax.
The MI model 9331G has become the primary standard in high resistance measurements in many laboratories. It is available in standard values from 100 MΩ to 100 TΩ and custom values available at any resistance therein. High stability and supplied alpha and beta temperature coefficients of the 9331G make them ideal for easy transport and operation in any working environment within the range of 18 °C to 28 °C. The resistance standards require no controlled oil or air bath to meet specifications, however, for improved performance, they can be placed in an air bath such as the model 9300 or 9300A.
The model 9300A Laboratory Air Bath is designed as a convenient way to maintain the temperature of standard resistors. Heating and cooling are provided by Peltier modules for low noise operation. The air bath can be set for a wide range of temperatures to establish temperature coefficients. The model 9300A is a shielded bath and is controllable via GPIB.
