PCE-PA 8300 Clamp Meter
3-phase / 3 current clamps / LCD graphic display / SD card memory

The PCE-PA 8300 is a Clamp Meter that features a durable enclosure, SD card memory, a LCD graphic display, as well as apparent, effective, and reactive power measurement. The easy-to-use PCE-PA 8300 Clamp Meter is the ideal tool for performing power and harmonics analysis as well as for measuring network capacity.

The PCE-PA 8300 is available for purchase in two different configurations:

Set 1: Includes 3 current clamps for measurements up to 1200 A AC
Set 2: Includes 3 flexible Rogowski coils for measurements up to 3000 A AC (for an additional fee)

Please choose either Set 1 or Set 2 before adding the PCE-PA 8300 to your cart.
