New contact-free clamp meters are simple to use

Conrad Electronic has increased its range of clamp meters to include two new contact-free measuring devices from Fluke. The Fluke 377 and 378 true-RMS clamp meters employ FieldSense technology to make testing easier and safer, all with no contact on a live conductor. Technicians can simultaneously get accurate voltage and current measurements through the clamp jaw by connecting the meter to any electrical ground and clamping around the conductor. Conveniently, the display changes to green when a stable measurement is detected, giving a visual indication that is extremely useful in noisy environments.

Use is further simplified by the included iFlex flexible current probe that gives access to large conductors in tight spaces and allows the measurement of AC current as high as 2500A.

“Speed of use and safety are two primary considerations for the large number of electricians, contractors and technicians that have to make high voltage and/or high current measurements frequently as part of their daily jobs,” said Walter Hock, vice president Products at Fluke. “With the Fluke 377 and 378 devices, users are assured of an accurate measurement with the minimum of effort and the highest level of safety.”

“Conrad is always seeking products that make their customer’s lives easier and safer and these clamp meters from Fluke do exactly that” said Susanne Storch, senior expert product manager from Conrad Electronic. “Coupling this with their ability to make calculations and save results to the cloud automatically, this is truly the future of basic electrical measurements.”
