Automatic unidirectional mode applies current in one direction only to speed up the measurement process.
However thermal EMF resulting from dissimilar metal bonds can cause lower accuracy. Test starts automatically when probes are connected.
Continuous mode allows repeated measurements to be made on the same sample. Simply connect the test leads and press the test button. The measurement is updated every three seconds until the circuit is broken.
Inductive mode is selected when measuring resistance on, for example, motors and generators. When measuring inductive loads it is necessary to wait for the voltage to stabilize as the inductive element is charged. Test leads are firmly connected to the device under test and the 'Test' button pressed. The instrument will pass the selected current through the sample continuously in one direction only and take repetitive readings that will gradually decrease to the true value as the voltage stabilizes. The operator decides when the result is stable and presses the 'Test' button to terminate the test.
