GENEVA, OH – March 4, 2013 – The TEGAM Model R1L-BR1 bond meter is a purpose built, rechargeable battery powered portable instrument for ground bond measurements. The R1L-BR1 comes with BCP-10 Kelvin Probes and KAK-1M Kelvin Alligator Klips, all housed within a ruggedized case for protection during transport. It has been selected for deployment in support of the Kiowa Warrior Armed Reconnaissance Helicopter. The R1L-BR1 continues the history of excellence established by the inexpensive R1L-B and rugged R1L-BR, which are in inventory at each branch of the US military, and have more than 500 units currently fielded.
TEGAM’s Model R1L-BR1 can be used in a wide variety of applications outside the capabilities of other bond meters, including:
- Fixed and rotary wing aircraft bond measurements in manufacturing and flight line maintenance operations where its high accuracy produces consistent results.
- Verifying electromagnetic shield integrity between connector back shells.
- Measure static discharge wicks for electrical continuity.
- Inspect conductive coatings for coverage and thickness.
TEGAM’s Model R1L-BR1 has five ranges with full-scale values ranging from 2 milliohms to 20 ohms. Resolution on the lowest range is 1 microohm. Accuracy is 0.25% of reading ± 1 count. It is fully portable with rechargeable batteries that provide a full day of typical use. The operating temperature range is 0 °C to 50 °C.
