This paper deals with the realization of the four-pair terminal definition of impedance standards. A simple, though reliable, system is described that allows an automatic compensation of the voltage at the low potential port of impedance standards to be obtained. Such a system employs a commercial data acquisition board and a signal generator with adjustable-phase capability, which acts as the phase reference for the generator that feeds the impedance standard. A standard PC controls the whole system and implements the demodulation and the control algorithms. Preliminary tests have been performed in the frequency range of 50 Hz to 20 kHz with different kinds of impedance standards (resistive, inductive and capacitive), obtaining a residual voltage at the low potential port of less than 5 μV.
