Fabrication of High Value Standard Resistors for ICE-LMVE



Dean G. Jarrett, Isabel Castro, Marlin E. Kraft


In Costa Rica, the Laboratorio Metrológico de Variables Eléctricas (LMVE) at the Instituto Costarricense de Electricidad (ICE) develops and improves measurement capabilities to promote and support the industrial innovation and development in the country. It's a pertinent remark that the resistance standards as well as the dc voltage standards are used to determine other electrical quantities such as electrical power, energy, electrical current or capacitance. A set of nineteen high value standard resistors from 100 MΩ to 100 GΩ were fabricated and measured at NIST, in order to use some of them as a Resistance Standards for ICE-LMVE.
