Iain, forgive me but I'm not sure what you mean by "tails" and therefore how you've wired your test equipment.

The ABS sensors are active devices so need to be connected to the ECU at all times. Are you therefore using a "break out" loom in series with the sensor and ECU which enables you to make measurements whilst maintaining full connection?

What I've done is connect an old blue plug with 'tails' of cable to the blue plug from the ECU to the sensor. The sensor is not connected. I then read the voltage between each of the two wires and earth. Battery, 12.7, red lead 8v, yellow lead 7v (approx.)
Reading the other thread again, it appears this may be a mistake...
I'll make up a lead that I can use to measure while the sensor is connected, see what happens. It may not be today, though, bit busy!
