Megger DLRO10 DUCTER 10A Micro-Ohmmeter with DH4-C
Megger DLRO10 10 A Tester is small, lightweight and portable designed for ground bond testing, routine maintenance and corroboration of protection systems to prevent long term damage to equipment. Megger DLRO10 provides accurate test results in under 3 seconds! The device uses a four-terminal resistance method that shows the true resistance of the item under test (IUT).
Each device automatically applies forward and reverse currents to the IUT, cancelling out any standing voltages, as well as checks for undue noise during measurement to reduce the possibility of recording an incorrect result.
Megger DLRO10 is perfect for:
- Utilities (inc. wind turbines. See KC series test leads data sheet)
- Chemical plants
- Telecommunication Companies
- Automotive manufacturers
- Anywhere UPS battery back-up systems are used

What is Low Resistance?
It‘s a measurement below 1.000 ohm. At this level it is important to use test equipment that will minimise errors introduced by the test lead resistance and/or contact resistance between the probe and the material being tested. Standing voltages across the item being measured may also cause errors, which need to be identified (eg. thermal emfs at junctions between different metals).
To allow a measurement to compensate for these errors, a four terminal measurement method is carried out with a reversible test current and a suitable Kelvin Bridge meter. Low resistance ohmmeters like the Megger DLRO10 are designed specifically for these applications.
Why Measure Low Resistance?
An operator periodically tests low resistance to prevent long-term damage to existing equipment and to minimise energy wasted as heat. These measurements indicate any restrictions in current flow that might prevent a machine from generating its full power or allow insufficient current to flow to activate protective devices in the case of a fault.
Unexpected changes in the measured values, and the trending of this data help indicate and forecast possible failure conditions. Excessive changes in measured values point to the need for corrective action to prevent a major failure.
