The new challenge of measuring large cross section stranded probes
Fast oxidation and bad conductivity between different strands > very high magnitude, reproducable and value controlled clamping force needed.
Even current distribution in conductor requires typically factor of 20 (length/diameter) > probe length 3 to 4 meters (typical for cross sections larger 500 mm2), and accordingly requirement for same length clamping device.
Wire entangling of cut probe > device to twist probe back to original condition.
This is why we developed our new wire holding device model 2383. It will work compatible with the measurement equipment RESISTOMAT® 2304, which you might already use. Copper probes can be measured with the same clamping device, and if you already use our waterbath 2382, we can retrofit it. We want to make sure you get the right and most economical equipment.
