Determining the Electrical Resistance of Plastics
Measured via Surface and Volume in 29 Steps
If the isolating properties of plastics and a the extent of their resistance to electrical current are important to know, then the Hiresta-UX measuring device by Mitsubishi Chemical Analytech can help. As guaranteed by their sales partner N&H Technology GmbH, Willich, the system can quickly and exactly determine both the surface and the volumetric resistance of semi- and non-conductors in the high-resistance range from 1000 to 1014 Ω*cm.
The system applies concentric ring electrode-measuring heads and works with constant voltage, with a maximum of 1000 V measuring voltage applied at the measuring head. In 29 steps, the integrated “Auto Sweep” function adapts the applied voltage to the resistance. The user can choose among various measuring heads for diverse applications and materials. Not just plastics but also foamed materials, varnishes, films, and fibers can be analysed.
A color TFT-LC touchscreen with 7.5” diagonal length helps to read the data and simplifies menu navigation. The data can also be transmitted to a PC via USB interface. The measurements comply with the ASTM D257 or the ISO 2951 standards.
