LSR – Copper – Electric conductivity

Electrical conductivity measurement of a Metal

Copper, renowned for its exceptional electrical conductivity, finds widespread application in power cables due to its lower cost compared to alternative materials such as silver (Ag) with similar conductivity. The high conductivity of copper, however, poses challenges in accurately measuring its electrical resistivity. The small voltage drop across the material demands a flexible measurement configuration, favoring long and thin samples, coupled with a requirement for a substantial measurement current.

App. Nr. 02-009-005 LSR – Copper – Electric conductivity

The graph illustrates the measurement of a highly conductive copper alloy using the Linseis LSR-3 platform. The platform’s adjustable probe distance, flexible sample geometry, and the advanced LINSEIS measurement electronics, capable of delivering up to 160 mA, enabled the precise measurement of this demanding sample.
