Save time by NOT breaking the loop on 4-20 mA signal measurements.
ARE YOU SPENDING TIME:
- Taking mA measurements by removing a wire and breaking the loop
- Calling the control room to isolate a loop
- Testing analog input/output on a console
- Troubleshooting devices with mA inputs and outputs
- Repairing intermittent or erratic 4-20 mA loops
- Going back to the shop to get extra tools
If you need more time in your busy day take a good look at the Fluke 773 mA Clamp Meters. It’s designed to save you time, and money, by eliminating time wasting activities. Now you can troubleshoot and repair 4-20 mA loops without breaking the loop or bringing down the system.
Here are some specific ways the Fluke 773 Clamp Meters will help you:
Milliamp Clamp Features
How it saves time and money
Measure mA signals for PLC and control system analog I/O without breaking the loop.
Measures low level dc current
Correlate process indication with real physical value
Measure output signals from transmitters without breaking the loop
Maintain and troubleshoot process and automation equipment without breaking the loop
No disruption to the process
Detachable clamp with extension cable
Measurements in tight locations
Enables measurements in difficult situations
Source, simulate and measure mA signals in circuit (break the loop)
Confirm non-contact measurement. ve the next tool in hand for troubleshooting (source simulate)
Eliminates the need to return to the shop to get a loop calibrator for troubleshooting after finding a bad signal with non-contact measurement
Source and measure VDC
Troubleshoot voltage input and output devices.
Measure presence of 24V loop power. Measure 1 to 5 or 0 to 10V process signals. Test chart recorders
4 to 20 mA In/out
Dual channel mA source and measurement for troubleshooting
Source 4 to 20 mA signals into valves and mA signal conditioners and simultaneously measure 4 to 20 mA positioning output signals.
4 to 20 mA scaled output
Scaled mA output provides a mA signal output representative of the measured mA value
Connect a logging DMM and log the mA signal without breaking the loop
Loop power supply
Power a transmitter
Substitute testing of the installed 24V loop power supply. Power a transmitter and measure its mA output signal for troubleshooting.
Dual backlit display with both mA measurement and percent of 4 to 20 mA span
Clear measurement presentation
Allows quick measurement evaluation
Illuminates hard to see wires in dark enclosures
Measurement process is easier and quicker
Measure up to 99.9 mA range non-contact
Wide range of measurements
Measures 10 to 50 mA signals in older control systems
Automatic power off
After 15 minutes and 2 minute automatic off for backlight and spotlight
Saves battery life
