Current Clamps

Clamp-on current probes or "current clamps" enable the user to measure currents without breaking the electric circuit. Current clamps are designed with jaws that can be opened, placed around the conductor and clamped closed to form a magnetic loop around the conductor.

Current clamps offer a safe, cost-effective, simple and accurate way to take current measurements.

The MicroTec range of current clamps can be used with Pico oscilloscopes and data loggers, as well all major brands of oscilloscope and multimeters.

Current clamp (60A AC/DC)

Pico Technology
TA018

This improved version of the PP218 features superior noise rejection and is terminated in a BNC connector.

Current clamp (60A AC/DC)

Pico Technology
TA009

This current clamp will measure both AC and DC currents in the range 10 mA to 60 A. Features include a selectable calibrated voltage output. Supplied with 4 mm (banana) plug type connectors.

Current clamp (2000A/200A AC/DC)

Pico Technology
TA167

This current clamp is suitable for measuring currents of upto 2000 A DC or 1500 A AC and is terminated in a BNC connector.

The 2000A/200A heavy duty current clamp allows you to measure up to 2000A without cutting, disconnecting or stripping the wire. It is ideal for measuring the high currents drawn by the starter motor of commercial vehicles and large engine passenger cars.

This clamp can replace both the existing PP266 (600A), and PP253 (2000A) clamps with improved sensitivity, lower noise and faster response. The TA167 features a 200A mode for better performance at lower currents and has an improved jaw size. It also features an auto power-down facility to save battery life when not in use (this feature can be disabled for battery drain / shutdown current testing).

Using advanced Hall Effect sensors for improved sensitivity and high external field rejection, the TA167 delivers a breakthrough in range and accuracy to meet the challenges of modern vehicles and particularly diesel engines.

These current clamps have been designed for use with PicoScope oscilloscopes and feature additional screening to reduce noise pickup.

Current clamp (600A AC/DC)

Pico Technology
TA019

This improved version of the PP179 features superior noise rejection and is terminated in a BNC connector.

Current clamp (600A AC/DC)

Pico Technology
MI077

This current clamp can measure currents upto 600 A for both AC (upto 400 Hz) and DC currents. Features includes a low battery indicator. Supplied with 4 mm (banana) plug type connectors.
