A clamp meter is a specific measuring tool used within the electrical industry for the measurement of currents. The tool combines a jawed clamp with a voltmeter, and this allows the device to safely test a live wire for its electrical current properties. On the more advanced clamp meter devices, the readings are displayed on an LCD screen, and with the earlier models are indicated on a dial. It was first introduced as a single purpose electrician’s tool, although advancements in technology have allowed the clamp meter to go beyond just measuring currents. The later models are more accurate and have incorporated specialised functions for an in-depth reading.
Clamp meters in Ireland today, are equipped with most of the basic features of a Digital Multimeter (DMM), but have an added advantage with their built in current transformer. This transformer is what allows the clamp meter to measure ac current. When the jaws of the device are clamped down onto the conductor that is carrying the current, the current then passes through the jaws into a secondary winding that is connected across the shunt of the meter’s input. A less powerful current signal is then passed through the meter’s input and this is then compared and measured. The reading is displayed on the dial or screen as a ratio between primary and secondary readings.This method of measuring currents allows for much greater currents to be tested.
Purchasing a clamp meter with the specifications, features and functions that will suit the requirements of the job is vital in the accurate measurement of currents. All the products offered by Caulfield Industrial have been carefully manufactured by industry leaders to not only provide you with a functional device, but also with an ergonomic and thought-through physical design.
