Measure in as Fast as 0.9 ms, Optimized for Automated
Hioki DC resistance meters measure a broad range of resistance values at a
high level of precision. The RM3542 deliver high speed, high precision,
and high reliability, indispensable for the shipping inspection of
devices such as resistors and EMI components. The resistance meter also
supports chip resistor sampling inspections, helping resistor manufacturers
improve productivity.
