Fluke milliamp clamp meters save time, money for electricians
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.
