Q8A-2 10A High sensitivity 0.1% permalloy core ct AC current clamp

permalloy core ac current clamp

AC Current clamps are devices with jaws that open up and clamp around an electrical conductor to measure current. They are very useful as they allow you to clip the probe around an existing conductor without having to disconnect and reroute cables. AC Current clamps will read the magnitude of alternating current (AC) as well as the phase shift and waveform.

 

DESCRIPTION

The model Q8A2 permalloy core ac current clamp ct with high accuracy up to 0.1% has been designed for use with energy meter tester, multimeters, recorders, power analyzers, safety testers etc. It has low phase shift for power measurement, greatly suitable for electric energy meter calibrator and oscilloscope. This Q8A2 clamp ct can convert 0 - 10A AC current to 0 - 10mA AC current with real shape, max 20A measurement, but with harmonic measurement function. It is suitable for leakage current measurement in the field.
