Fluke milliamp clamp meters save time, money for electricians
New product launch makes troubleshooting easier
Fluke Corp., global provider of portable electronic test and measurement technology, introduced Friday, May 15 two new milliamp (mA) clamp meters designed to help technicians test critical automation and control circuits without breaking the circuit or interrupting operations.
The new Fluke 772 and 773 Milliamp Clamp Meters join the Fluke 771 to deliver a comprehensive range of test and measurement capabilities, according to Fluke. Now technicians in process plants, industrial plants, commercial buildings, and automotive repair shops can choose exactly the range of capabilities they need, at a price that makes sense, the company says.
These precision tools are designed for instrumentation technicians, contractors and process vendors who install and commission instruments, process and automation technicians, commercial electricians and auto repair technicians who do mA loop troubleshooting on process control circuits, instruments and automotive systems.
The Fluke 771, 772 and 773 Milliamp Clamp Meters are engineered to accurately measure the minute amounts of current (4 to 20 mA signals) that flow through control system circuits, without having to shut down the system, break the circuit and insert a test instrument.
Instead, sensitive current clamps placed on the wire detect and measure the current flowing through.

Before the calendar turned, 2016 already had the makings of a pivotal year for manufacturing, and for the world.
There were the big events for the year, including the United States as Partner Country at Hannover Messe in April and the 2016 International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago in September. There's also the matter of the U.S. presidential elections in November, which promise to shape policy in manufacturing for years to come.
But the year started with global economic turmoil, as a slowdown in Chinese manufacturing triggered a worldwide stock hiccup that sent values plummeting. The continued plunge in world oil prices has resulted in a slowdown in exploration and, by extension, the manufacture of exploration equipment.
