The Y series current clamps are designed to be both rugged and versatile whilst remaining easy to use. The jaws are designed so that the clamps can be hooked onto cables or clamped onto busbars for current measurement up to 600 A AC.
There are two types of Y series current clamps available: The first acts as a current transformer (ratios of 100:1 or 1000:1), giving an output current that may be read by a multimeter, logger or other suitable devices with appropriate current calibres. The other kind of Y series clamp has a DC voltage output proportional to the AC current measured, allowing instruments without current calibres to measure, display and record currents on a DC voltage calibre. There is also a model available specifically for direct use with oscilloscopes.
