Martindale Part No: METE1612

The Metrohm E1612 is a handheld 4 pole Earth Resistance tester for accurate measurement of earth resistance and soil resistivity.

The tester, including batteries, weighs less than 1.5kg making it ideal for the mobile approach required when performing earth testing. This microprocessor controlled unit benefits from advanced safety features and displays the test results on a large LCD screen.

The E1612 is supplied as a kit and includes batteries, 4 earth spikes with connecting cables and a manual. The manual includes simple illustrated instructions of how to carry out earth testing with 2 and 3 spikes and how to measure soil resistivity using 4 spikes. A shoulder strap completes the kit which is enclosed in a tough, durable case.
