calibration resisitor

A calibration resistor or measuring resistor is used in measurement technology as a standard resistor for calibration purposes and calibrations. It is a passive component with a precisely known resistance value. It should be insensitive to influences such as self-heating, ambient temperature and frequencies. When using it, care must be taken to ensure that the contact resistance is kept very low.
