The EM4058 earth tester is a digital, microprocessor controlled instrument that allows to measure the earth resistance and ground resistivity (using Wenner´s method), as well as to detect parasitic voltages present in the ground. This instrument is suitable to measure earth systems in power substations, industries, distribution networks, etc., according to IEC 61557-5.
It is also suitable for soil resistivity measurements, in order to optimize the earth systems project. It is a fully automatic and easy-to-operate equipment. Before starting each measurement, the equipment will check that conditions are within appropriate limits and will notify the operator in case any abnormality turns up (too high interference voltage, too much resistance in test spikes, very low test current, etc). Then, it will look for the most suitable range and show measurement results in an alphanumeric display.
