Industrial plants and large facilities often have equipment and installations that draw greater than 1000 A. As with other current measurements, it is not practical to disconnect the equipment to make a series of current measurements. The ability to check that an expensive system has been installed correctly, troubleshoot large loads, and make accurate measurements on UPS and Variable Frequency drives with noisy loads is also essential. In industrial settings, compliance with NFPA 70E safety standards, while making measurements, is critical. Fluke has addressed this by designing this product to meet CAT IV 600 V and CAT III 1000 V ratings.
Confidently take reliable readings with the Fluke 353 AC/DC True-rms Clamp Meter – the tool of choice for high-current clamp-on amp meter measurements up to 2000 A. The extra-wide jaw easily clamps around large conductors, typically found in high-current applications and the extra rugged design has an extra element of user protection when taking high-powered measurements.
Accurate peak measurements can be taken using the in-rush current mode, ideal for motors and inductive loads.
