    I'm other way around, done many more FOP tests across a switch, breaker, etc. than for grounding electrode testing.

    The test you are doing is what I would call a voltage drop test.

    All the more reason not to use acronyms or initialisms.

    Well then it is a VDT

    But isn't anything indicated on a volt meter a VDT?
