Resistance Measurement U1191A

Hi there,

I recently bought an Agilent U1191A Clamp Meter and I'm having trouble using it to measure the resistance of windings in a permanent magnet generator.  The reading fluctuates wildly between values (e.g. 0-50ohm).  I have used another much cheaper clamp meter to measure the winding resistance and know the resistance is ~5.3ohm.

What am I doing wrong?

thanks,
Alan.

ps - please also see my other post regarding measuring the same resistance with an Agilent U1731C.
