It is a common phenomenon that more and more people use clamp amp meter frequently in their daily life. But there is still many people have no idea about how to use a clamp on amp meter. So let us learn together about how to use a clamp on amp meter today.
Before learn how to use a clamp on amp meter, let us know the usage of a clamp on amp meter. It is used to test the electric current of the circuit, which means we can use it to check out what is going wrong with the circuit of our household appliances easily.
First of all, we should choose the voltage grade of clamp amp meter according to our need. And check whether its exterior insulation is good, whether the pointer is flexible. Then, we should choose the range of clamp meter according to the motor power estimation rated current. And we should select properly gear, like AC gear or DC gear. Above all are the fundamental steps on how to use a clamp on amp meter. I will introduce more as follow.
Eventually, we should open the jaw of the clamp amp meter, and access the clamp meter into the tested circuit. So we can get the data we need. In addition, if you want to test the starting current of the household appliances, you are supposed to push the “INRUSH” before starting the household appliances. Now we have known how to use a clamp on amp meter.
There is no doubt that we should pay attention to the how to use a clamp on amp meter properly, for the reason that only it this way can we get the right data and use it safely. Thanks to the one who invented clamp meter, it makes our life more convenience.
