The is a portable battery powered checker fitted with built-in parallel electrodes that allow for tests of material surface resistance. This meter is designed for quick checks of surface resistance for ESD control applications in electronics manufacturing or handling environment. The is equipped with an automatic test voltage selector. The test voltage will switch from 10V to 100V should the measured resistance exceed 1 x 105 ohms. Two banana jacks and an electrode toggle switch allow for the connection of two external 5 pound electrodes that measure surface resistance point to point (RTT).

  • Economical Compliance Verification Surface Resistance Checker: Used for determining if a surface is dissipative, conductive, or insulative

  • Color Coded LEDs: Quickly provides exponent range for quick checks of EPA ESD control items

  • Automatic Test Range Voltage Selection Per Compliance Verification ESD TR53: Starts tests at 10 volts and automatically switches to 100 volts if the measurement is over 10E5 ohms

  • Once Reading is Finalized, the Surface Resistance Exponent Will Remain Displayed as Long as Test Button is Depressed: Provides exponent range of resistance measurement which is often all that is required for determining if a material is intended for an ESD Protected Area

  • Portable Operation With 9 Volt Battery: No charging or sourcing of special batteries needed

  • Flashing LED Warns When Battery Is Low: Prevents operator from making bad measurements

  • Optional Five Pound Electrodes and Leads For Resistance Measurements: Use the same checker to indicate resistance point-to-point (Rtt) and resistance to ground (Rtg) of larger surfaces (flooring, mats)

  • NIST Calibrated: Calibrated with accepted procedures and standards traceable to the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

  • Made in the United States of America



A delivery and handling charge applies to all orders with the exception of back-ordered items.

Unless otherwise required by Buyer, Seller will make transport arrangements as follows:

For deliveries within the metropolitan areas of mainland State capital cities a standard freight charge may be added to invoice; goods

For delivery outside those areas, seller will select the transport to be used and prepay freight for Buyer. Seller will then bill Buyer for freight at Seller's discretion.

Should the Buyer request goods be sent to a Post Office box the Buyer acknowledges this method is the only available and therefore the Seller is not liable for undelivered goods.

Free shipping on orders over $175 excluding GST (valid for 1 delivery per order and excludes NT, WA & TAS). If only part of the order is in stock, the customer has the option of paying for a second delivery if they require a partial shipment prior to all goods becoming available. Mektronics Australia reserves the right to charge additional freight in the event of hazardous, bulky or heavy items ordered.


All quoted delivery or consignment dates are estimates only, given without engagement.

Delay in consignment of any part of an order shall not relieve Buyer of its obligation to accept and pay for the remainder of the order.

Except as provided in paragraph 1.2 of Terms & Conditions, seller will not be liable to pay damages or compensation for any injury or loss sustained by Buyer

a) in the event of a delay in consignment or delivery of goods: or

b) in the event of non delivery.

Goods offered ex-stock by Seller are subject to prior sale.

In the event of any happening beyond Seller's reasonable control in consequence of which Seller cannot effect consignment by the time or times quoted or specified, Seller shall be entitled to consign part only of an order, suspend consignment or extend the time for consignment, for the period during which such cause of delay operates, or may cancel the order, and in the event of such suspension, extension or cancellation, Seller shall not be liable for damages.
