Small-sized wrist-wearable microohmmeter MIKO-10 is designed for instant DC resistance measurements within the range 1 μΩ ÷ 0.1 Ω.

MIKO-10 enables measurements at following objects:

  • High-voltage or auto circuit breakers;
  • Releasing, connecting or disconnecting switches, contactors and relays;
  • Bolted, welted and brazed joints of current leads and busbars;
  • Rail connections and wagon wheel pairs;
  • Electric motors, generators, compensators, and other objects. 

MIKO-10 is ahead of similar instruments represented in the market due to a number of functional and technical features.

MIKO-10 is applied in electric networks, power plants or substations, traction substations of electrified transport, as well as in industrial enterprises where 10 A current is sufficient for measurements.

In turn, test current in similar instruments does not exceed 2 A, so that MIKO-10 (with test current up to 10 A and the weight of 0.5 kg) achieves leading positions among microohmmeters of this class.

In case of obvious oxide film on the contacts more powerful microohmmeters are recommended, such as MIKO-21 (current of up to 200A) or MIKO-2.3 (current of up to 1000A), as measurements using low currents in such instances can show higher values of resistance and, as a result, the contacts may be unjustifiably rejected.

Different measurement modes are implemented in the instrument:

AUTO: is intended for contact resistance measurement of HV circuit breakers w/o CT and any demountable or non-demountable connections on current 1A or 10 A. The measurement starts automatically by the circuit closing;

SINGLE: is intended for contact resistance measurement of HV circuit breakers w/o CT and any demountable or non-demountable connections on current 1 A or 10 A. The measurement starts by the User’s command;

BUILT-IN CT: is intended for contact resistance measurement of HV circuit breakers with CT on current 10 A. The measurement starts by the User’s command.

MIKO-10 is a modern small-sized microohmmeter that complies up-to-date Users’ requirements.

The instrument has a number of important functions:

  • Auto thermal EMF balancing in the test circuit;
  • Auto power off, if the instrument is not used;
  • Circuit continuity test;
  • Auto measurement start against the test circuit continuity confirmation;
  • Audible indication of the measurement start and stop.

One battery charge is enough for at least 1000 measurements at maximum current.

The instrument has an energy independent memory of up to 100 recordings, which is sufficient for overall and complex test of a transformer substation.

USB connection to PC facilitates classification and storage of recordings on the computer and generation of measurement reports.

Special software developed by the manufacturer is used for data transfer to the computer and for recordings archiving.

The built-in battery of MIKO-10 makes the operation pro- cess fully self-contained. One battery charge is enough for more than 1000 measurements at max current. Non-volatile memory up to 100 tests ensures a complex test of a transformer substation.

MIKO-10 can justly be refered to portable instruments due to its light weight of 0.5 kg and small dimensions 165 × 100 × 60 mm.

The above peculiarities ensure complete autonomy of the instrument over the vast territory of substation or facility.

The instrument is placed into an ergonomic case that can be fixed on the wrist by special belts, thus leaving both hands free to facilitate measurement process.

Moreover, the instrument can be easily removed from the wrist and fixed on the waist or on the neck, and also installed on any flat surface.

There are specially designed cables of different length and with different lugs for reliable connection to the measurement object.

Additional items to be purchased:
  • Cables with needle-type spring loaded contacts. For instance, can be used to test the resistance of busbars and terminal buses;
  • Test cables with crocodile clips;
  • Test cables with probes; 
  • Protective case;
  • Multi-function belts; 
  • Wearproof tool bag. 

High accuracy of results is ensured even for diagnosis in heavy weather conditions. The MIKO-10 operation is guaranteed at a temperature range from -20 to +55 °С.

    SEVERSTROY, LLC

    The MIKO-10 microohmmeter is a portable option of instruments for electric resistances measurements that are manufactured by SKB EP, LLC.

    The device has been operated by electrotechnical division of SEVERSTROY Construction Company since September, 2016 for testing the 10/0.4kV electric units of newly constructed and modernized industrial plants.

    It was used for control and measurement of transient resistances of wired and metal connections of electric potential balancing systems, switching equipment of electric units during their wiring, commissioning and acceptance tests.

    Undisputable merits of the instrument include:

    • Different ways of positioning the instrument during measurements;
    • Availability of non-volatile memory;
    • Automatic measurement start-up and stop, switching out if the instrument is not used;
    • Beeping the measurements start-up and termination.


    As of today the MIKO-10 is an optimum option of price-quality ratio among instruments for analyzing the condition of 10/0.4kV electric units.

    United Techno Service, LLC

    Our laboratory, on the recommendation of your specialist, purchased a small-sized microohmmeter MIKO-10 manufactured by SKB EP, LLC. Using the instrument leaves a positive feeling. We especially want to highlight its compactness, ease of use and performance at low temperatures. Not every instrument can brag about it. The instrument case is assembled efficiently, there are no backlashes and creaks. The settings menu is intuitive, autonomy is good, accuracy and measurement speed are also at a high level. The insulation of the measuring cables ensures that they remain flexible even at low ambient temperatures.

    As for the minuses, the connectors stick and give a little inconvenience when plugging in or unplugging, it would be more convenient make connectors like "banana".

    [Manufacturer note]: The fastening implemented in MIKO-10 microohmmeter is designed for reliable fixation of test cables to the device that excludes circuit break and ensures tight contact of cables with device inputs, which cannot be guaranteed in the presence of "banana" type connectors.

    We also would like test cables with loaded needle-type contacts to be in paired with the instrument, not as additional equipment.

    [Manufacturer note]: Standard complete set of MIKO-10 microohmmeter includes only one test cable (item code: SKB042.04.00.000), since the functionality of this cable is sufficient for most measurements. In our opinion, it is a universal cable for making measurements with MIKO-10. Test cables with spring loaded needle-type contacts are purchased depending on the measurement object requirements where a standard cable cannot be used.

    Our laboratory recommends the MIKO-10 to purchase.

    Tesla, LLC

    In June 2018, Tesla, LLC electrical laboratory purchased MIKO-10 microohmmeter. Based on more than two years of operation, we can give the following feedback:

    • The device proved to be reliable; there was not a single case of failure. Including when operating the device in winter at low temperatures;
    • The measurement process itself is fast;
    • I think it is a very good solution to mount the device with a belt on the hand. This opportunity lets the hands be free during the measurement process;
    • Small weight and size dimensions;
    • The clips of the test cables are reliable. All the cables are made in good cold-resistant insulation.

    MIKO-10 microohmmeter allows you to significantly reduce the time spent on resistance values measurements in comparison with traditional devices. We are satisfied with the purchase of this device, but there is one more wish:

    The device does not include a carrying bag (case). It would be very convenient, if the manufacturer considered the possibility of completing the device with such bags with a compartment for storing test cables.

    [Manufacturer note]: We would like to note that your wish to complete the device with a compact bag has already been implemented, as the additional configuration of the MIKO-10 microohmmeter includes a special bag for transportation of the device, cables and other additional accessories (article SKB118.01.00.000). The bag is equipped with three compartments that easily fit both the device unit itself and all types of test cables. The bag dimensions are 37 x 14 x 24 cm (L x W x H).
