A CONTINUITY TEST is accomplished with an ohmmeter. This test is used to check for opens (or
to see if the circuit is complete or continuous).
GROUNDED CIRCUITS are caused by some conducting part of the circuit making contact either
directly or indirectly with the metallic structure of the ship or chassis. In testing for grounds, you may use
either an ohmmeter or a megger.
A SHORT CIRCUIT, other than a grounded one, is where two conductors touch each other directly
or through another conducting element. An ohmmeter is used to test for shorts.
