New High-current DC Clamp Meter Added to Fluke Connect Family of Wireless Test Tools
- Published: Tuesday, 23 June 2015 12:18
Fluke has introduced a Current Clamp Meter measuring up to 2000A DC that wirelessly relays measurements to other Fluke Connect™ enabled master units at a safe distance.
The Fluke a3003 FC Wireless DC Current Clamp Meter is a fully functional current clamp meter. With its extra-wide jaw, it easily clamps around large conductors in utility, rail, marine, mining, or other heavy manufacturing industries where large DC currents or large current carrying cables are typically found.
The Fluke a3003 FC Current Clamp Meter measures DC currents from 10A to 2000A. Its extra wide jaw size of 64mm enables the measurement of large-diameter, high-current conductors. Supplied with a convenient magnetic hanging strap for safe working and recording over time, the current clamp features a logging function for the recording and saving of up to 65,000 measurements.
The Fluke Connect system allows maintenance technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from Fluke test tools such as the a3003 FC to their smart phone for secure storage on the cloud, thus enabling access by any team member in the field. Maintenance technicians make better, faster decisions when they have field access to maintenance records and when they can review measurements in real time with team members and supervisors who may be in different locations. Fluke Connect facilitates access to records by all team members wherever they are and at the same time increases the safety of technicians working with energised equipment.
The Fluke a3003 FC Current Clamp Meter is suitable for field maintenance engineers, industrial technicians and maintenance managers working in utilities and power generation, heavy industry (such as steel mills, electroplating and mining), and with large motor and DC control systems and UPSs.
The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. More than twenty Fluke tools connect wirelessly with the Connect app, including digital multimeters, infrared cameras, insulation testers, process meters, and specific voltage, current and temperature meters.
