Home » Ohm Labs SmartResistor and Automated Resistance Standard
The Ohm Labs SmartResistor combines all the elements needed to maintain the unit of resistance in one transportable device: a set of standard resistors, a controlled temperature bath, a low thermal emf scanner and measurement data.
To maintain and discriminate the Ohm, a laboratory must have a set of resistance standards and usually at decade values (1 Ω, 10 Ω, 100 Ω, etc.). The SmartResistor contains eight resistors. A typical model has eight decade values ranging from 1 Ω to 10 M Ω. However, any of the eight resistor values can be specified when ordering. Due to power and leakage limitations, the value must be between 0.1 Ω and 10 M Ω.
Traditional resistance standards are usually held in an oil bath at a constant temperature: these baths are large, noisy and cannot be transported. The SmartResistor contains a constant temperature housing, which makes portability possible. The control circuit has sufficient power to cope with variations in ambient temperature. The nominal setting is 25.00 ° C. In normal chamber environments this constant temperature housing has a stability better than 10 mK.
The standards are hermetically sealed and therefore immune to changes in air pressure and relative humidity.
A resistance standard has no value without its characterization. These data include a reference value in ohms, coefficients of temperature, power coefficient, frequency range and drift over time. The SmartResistor’s internal computer maintains all this data and provides it to the user. The data is available for integration into automated systems.
As time passes, the SmartResistor applies drift corrections to the displayed value. The SmartResistor software generates and maintains control cards for each of the eight standards.
The 8-channel low-thermal emf scanner cards of the Ohm Labs SmartResistor are from DataProof, a world leader in scanner technology. This integrated scanner makes automated build ups. Each of the eight resistance standards is a choice of R1 or R2 on the front panel.
The SmartResistor includes a battery-powered temperature logger, which monitors and warns of exposure to potentially harmful extreme temperatures during storage or transportation.

"The ABB Power Grids Jumet organisation is an innovative development and production facility of ABB that manufactures active filters and battery energy storage systems to support a stable grid. To test these systems we have acquired two Cinergia GE/EL +120kVA eplus units capable of doing grid emulation (AC + DC), operating as an electronic load (AC +DC) and being a battery emulator. We have experienced very good support from TTMS in obtaining these two Cinergia units. This included organising an on-site demonstration and supplying loan systems prior to the delivery of our final systems. This way we could start testing as early as possible. TTMS also organised training for the operators from the original manufacturer. This support allowed us to introduce the first battery energy storage systems even prior to the full delivery of the Cinergia systems."

“At the Energy and Environment department of the Faculty of Science, Technology and Medicine (FSTM) of the University of Luxembourg we do have different research projects related to green energy contributing to the development of eco-cities. As a long-standing partner of our research unit, TT&MS has proven that they are able to answer even the most complex questions in a professional manner. They have shown that they are always up to date with the latest technology and do not spare any effort to look at the application and even the situation on site. The exchange of ideas was always very pleasant and took place quickly. We look forward to further years of fruitful cooperation.”
