4. Open Circuit
This is one of two types of circuit fault (the other being a short circuit). In an open circuit fault, there is a break in the circuit. This break will prevent any current from flowing. Open circuit faults register on an ohmmeter with an extremely high (ideally infinite) resistance

5. Open Circuit
A break in an electrical circuit that prevents current from flowing.

6. Open Circuit
The lack of electrical contact in any part of the measuring circuit. An open circuit is usually characterized by rapid large jumps in displayed potential, followed by an off-scale reading.
