Clamp Meter
AC / DC digital multimeter with direct frequency measurement on the clamp / LCD display / Automatic shutdown when not in use / Current measurement up to 1000 A / For mobile use / Current clamp opening 40 mm (1.6 in)


The clamp meter is a versatile measuring instrument for the determination of currents, voltages and many other electrical quantities. With a current clamp opening of 40 mm / 1.6 in, even cables with a larger diameter can be tested with the digital multimeter. Thus, with the digital multimeter, current measurements of up to 1000 A AC / DC are possible.

The user can perform frequency measurements with this clamp meter. This ensures contactless frequency measurement with the digital multimeter. Thus, the digital multimeter is a useful addition to the equipment of an electrician.

- Current clamp opening 40 mm / 1.6 in
- Backlit LCD display
- Automatic shutdown
- Ready for operation after switching on
- Extensive measuring functions
- Measuring range is selected automatically

Accuracies are given at ambient conditions of 18 ... 28 °C, 65 ... 83 °F.
*The temperature is the difference between the temperature of the operating conditions and the current ambient temperature.
 
Example:
Is the current ambient temperature greater than the temperature of the operating conditions
(50 °C/ 122°F (current ambient temperature)) - (40 °C / 104°F (operating temperature)) = 10 °C / 50°F
Is the current ambient temperature less than the temperature of the operating conditions
(0 °C / 32°F (operating temperature)) - (-5 °C / 23°F (current ambient temperature)) = 5 °C / 41°F
