Wireless DC clamps improve measuring productivity

October 2015 Industrial Wireless

Comtest has added two new DC current clamps to its range of Fluke Connect wireless test tools: the a3003FC wireless DC current clamp and the a3004 FC wireless DC 4-20 mA current clamp. Both can wirelessly send measurements to Fluke Connect enabled master units as well as the Fluke Connect mobile app. This enables users to view measurements from multiple devices simultaneously, review equipment history and share measurements with other team members for faster troubleshooting.

The a3003FC wireless DC current clamp measures up to 2000 A, making it ideal for very high DC current measurements typically found in utility and DC machine controller applications. It features a large jaw size of 64 mm for clamping and measuring on large, high current conductors.

The a3004 FC wireless DC 4-20 mA current clamp measures 4 to 20 mA signals without breaking the loop so process control technicians can make accurate measurements without interrupting the workflow. It features a detachable clamp with extension cable for measurements in tight locations. Both current clamps can record and store up to 65 000 measurements with the logging feature to isolate intermittent events or record fluctuations without the user being there.

The a3003 and a3004, along with more than 20 other Fluke tools, are part of the Fluke Connect system, one of the world’s largest portfolio of connected tools. It allows technicians to make better and faster decisions by having access to maintenance records wherever they are working. The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded for free from the Apple iStore and the Google Playstore.
