Earth Resistance Tester calibration
We offer earth resistance tester calibration at competitive prices with a quick turnaround. Both standard and UKAS calibrations are available at our laboratory.
Choose basic calibration and we’ll get your equipment turned around within 5 working days. Do you need your tester back quickly? Then choose express calibration. This gets your equipment turned around within 2 working days.
We calibrate testers from a wide range of manufacturers including Fluke, Megger and Chauvin Arnoux.

What is an earth resistance tester?
An earth resistance tester is an instrument which measures earth resistivity.
We usually think of soil as something to plant things in. Say, flowers or vegetables. But it also has an electrical property. This is conductivity (also known as low resistance).
So what is earth resistance? Basically, it’s the resistance of soil to electrical current passing through it.
Earth resistivity measurements can be used to find natural materials. For example, they could find ores and clays hidden under ground.
They’re also useful if you’re planning a new electrical building (like a substation or a transmission tower) These measurements help find the best site for low resistance electrodes.
Another use for earth resistivity measurements is checking on the wear and tear of underground pipes. When resistivity levels are low this can be an indicator of corrosion.
