When measuring various electrical components for resistance, continuity, capacitance, temperature, and more, the various multimeters, clamp meters, and other equipment types provided by Amprobe can be highly beneficial. When measuring AC and DC voltage or current, Amprobe equipment can ensure that electrical equipment always functions optimally and as intended with their capabilities. In this blog, we will discuss how such tools can be used for measuring the voltage and current of electrical components, allowing you to best manage the wellbeing and performance of your systems with ease.
One of the most common uses that an Amprobe clamp meter can serve is for the measurement of AC and DC voltage. When carrying out such procedures, it is important that the tool is specifically switched to the right measurement setting through the use of the provided select button. With the probes provided on the meter, a parallel connection can be made to the circuit or a non-contact antennae. To carry out such measurements, the antenna may be placed close to the clamped jaws as a means of detecting the electric field present around conductors. With detection, all readings will be displayed on a provided LCD screen.
While measuring voltage with an Amprobe clamp meter is quite useful, such tools may also be employed for the means of measuring current as well. With a change to settings, the clamp may be opened through the actuation of the jaw release trigger, which will often be situated to the left side of the meter. Once opened, the clamp may then be placed with the jaw alignment marks centered around the conductor before closing the clamp again. At this point, readings of current will be displayed on the tool’s screen so that you may record it.
When making any measurement of electrical components, it is important that the jaws of the clamp meter are kept away from other current carrying devices, such as transformers. Manufacturer recommendations should also always be adhered to when using any multimeter or clamp meter device to avoid damage to equipment.
