# What does OL mean on a ohm meter?

The screen displays a value of zero (or near zero), and the multimeter beeps. Continuity! If the test current isn't detected, it means there's no continuity. The screen will display 1 or OL (open loop).

Similarly one may ask, what does OL mean on an ohmmeter?

The screen displays a value of zero (or near zero—in this case, 0.8). Very low resistance is another way of saying that we have continuity. If no current is detected, it means there's no continuity. The screen will display 1 or OL (open loop).

What is an infinite ohm reading?

Closed-When the term closed is used in relation to an electrical circuit it means that current can flow or it has continuity. Infinity ohms-This is what an ohmmeter reads when placed on an open circuit. On an analog meter infinity ohms is when the needle doesn't move at all and on a digital meter infinity ohms is 1 .

What is 10 ohms?

The ohm is also the equivalent of a volt per ampere (V/A). A kilohm is equal to one thousand (10 3 ) ohms. A megohm is equal to one million (10 6 ) ohms. Fractional prefix multiplier s are seldom used for resistance or reactances; rarely will you hear or read about a milliohm or a microhm.
