GOOD DESIGNCEDC

Note: These products cannot be used alone.
The optional SENSOR UNIT is required in order
to supply power and connect the clamp to a
Memory HiCorder or other instrument.
Products can be directly connected to the
compatible Power Meters and Power Analyzers.

Key Features

• High precision with a clamp-type design, ±0.3% amplitude accuracy, ±0.1° phase accuracy
• Wide-bandwidth DC to 500 kHz
• Single-handed operation and robust locking mechanism
• Reduced effects from magnetic fields, conductor position, and noise from nearby wires
• For EV/HEV battery charge and discharge efficiency measurement and inverter and power conditioner conversion efficiency evaluation


Germany iF Design Award
High-accuracy current sensors ideal for use with oscilloscopes and power meters

Compared to current sensors that use Hall elements, flux gate type current sensors are not prone to measurement error caused by variations in the external temperature. In addition, they can measure extremely low input (current values) and current waveforms with phase that lags by 90° with a high degree of precision. The CT6840 Series AC/DC Current Probes are ideal for measuring power waveforms with a digital oscilloscope and power meters.
