PMM presents the latest tool from Pico, developers of the PicoScope.
Designed to meet the needs of technicians in a wide range of industries, including automotive, the MT03A is the ultimate low-resistance testing tool. With its earth-bond testing in compliance with UN ECE R100 regulations and a minimum test current of 200 mA, the MT03A has widespread applications. This includes fuel pumps, air-conditioning motors, regeneration pumps, blower motors, camshaft controls, EGR valves, turbo actuators, and more.
This device is also useful for checking grounds to ECUs, earth straps, starter motor cables, safety grounds, weld contact quality, and earth bond testing. The MT03A features USB connectivity for easy integration with a PC, without needing any external power supply, and comes encased in a durable rubber boot with a hanging bracket for ease of use, while the included S-hook allows for effortless mounting.
The MT03A milliohm and motor tester aims to change the way low-resistance testing is performed. The MT03A offers resistance testing of all windings on a 3- phase motor in under a minute, aiming to produce accurate results that can automatically compensate for temperature using the included sensor.
The dedicated Windows software application says to provide a clear user interface that provides simplicity, speed, and complete control over the tester. The highly accurate milliohm values can be automatically temperaturecompensated, and the MT03A ensures precision and reliability even in varying temperature conditions. The kelvin clips are also included to minimise contact resistance effects when connecting the measurement unit to the component under test.
Phil Service, business development manager added: “The MT03A complements the PicoScope 4425A, adding another vital capability for testing both electric and internal combustion vehicles. The ease of use, speed of operation, and accuracy, make it an essential tool for any technician needing to test or verify resistances, motor windings, and bonding across many applications.”
