sisco clamp current meter is available with a measuring range of 0mA-60A AC/DC. The clamp ammeter is especially suitable for places with dense wiring (power metering systems, high-speed rail systems, automotive circuit maintenance, etc.), and non-contact current measurements to ensure safe operation. The instrument is small in size, high in precision, stable in performance and perfect in function, and is one of the necessary tools for electrical safety inspection and maintenance.
Q1: What is clamp ampere meter?
A1: A clamp ammeter is a combination of a current transformer and an ammeter. The iron core of the current transformer can be opened when the wrench is tightened; the wire through which the measured current passes can pass through the gap opened by the iron core without being cut off, and the iron core is closed when the wrench is released.
Q2: How does a current clamp meter work?
A2: A clamp meter is a clothespin-shaped instrument that can be clamped around a live wire in order to measure the current it's carrying. As a measurement principle, clamp meters detect the magnetic field emitted by current flowing in a wire in order to measure the current value.
Q3: How to use a clamp ammeter?
A3: When using a clamp ammeter to detect the current, be sure to clamp a measured wire (wire). If two (parallel wires) are clamped, the current cannot be detected. In addition, when the center (core) of the clamp ammeter is used for detection, the detection error is small. When checking the power consumption of home appliances, it is more convenient to use a line splitter. Some line splitters can amplify the detection current by 10 times, so the current below 1A can be amplified before detection. Use a DC clamp ammeter to detect the DC current (DCA), if the current flows in the opposite direction, it will display a negative number. This function can be used to detect whether the car's battery is in a charging state or a discharging state.
Tips: How does a clamp current meter work?
The measured circuit wire passing through the iron core of the clamp current meter becomes the primary coil of the current transformer, and the current is induced in the secondary coil by passing the current. So that the ammeter connected to the secondary coil has an indication - measure the current of the line under test. The clamp meter can be changed to different ranges by changing the gear of the switch. But it is not allowed to operate with electricity when shifting gears. The clamp meter is generally not high in accuracy, usually 2.5 to 5 grades. For convenience of use, there are switches of different ranges in the meter for the function of measuring different levels of current and measuring voltage.
