The MT9000 is a portable multifunctional bond, loop and surface resistance measurement unit. A number of network connectivity options allow the MT9000 to download test specifications and drawings and upload test results. This provides an authenticated auditable data trail and a subsequent reduction in test times by a factor of 6.
The MT9000 can measure bond resistance, loop resistance, high impedance and antistatic coating resistance and can operate in a stand alone multimeter mode capable of detecting loop faults, general measurements of resistance and AC and DC voltage measurement.
The MT9000 allows the operator to log on to a database which means that the operator no longer has to manually input and verify the test results, thus saving time and eliminating error. The MT9000 is battery operated and uses the latest Li-ion smart battery technology.
The MT9000 is capable of automatically measuring metal to metal bond resistances using a traditional 4-wire Kelvin technique. In this mode the MT9000 measures resistance with a resolution of 1µΩ and a repeatability of 10µΩ up to a maximum of 2Ω with a test current of 2 Amp
The MT9000 can also measure Bond Loop resistance using a non contact technique to the same measurement specification using an induced current of 1A.
In short, the MT9000 significantly increases test productivity and measurement accuracy, and totally eliminates errors in the recording of results. The system is currently used by Airbus on military and civilian wing production lines, Bombardier, Boeing and Fokker.
