Multimeter from PCE Instruments becomes clamp meter with optional current clamp

PCE Instruments has added the PCE-HDM 20 to its range of products. This digital multimeter measures current, voltage, capacitance, frequency, resistance and temperature. The latter can be measured from a safe distance via infrared or by using the K-type thermocouple that comes with the test instrument. The meter also measures the duty cycle and can be used for diode tests and continuity tests.

PCE-HDM 20

With an optional current clamp, the PCE-HDM 20 can also be used as a clamp meter. The PCE-HDM 20-CLAMP allows the user to measure coil currents of up to 3000 A at an accuracy of ±(0.8 % of measurement value +5 digits).

To keep the energy consumption low, the PCE-HDM 20 shuts down automatically after 15, 30 or 60 minutes of inactivity. The Auto Power Off time can be selected by the user or even deactivated. The MAX/MIN function and the HOLD function can be very useful in some applications. It fulfils the overvoltage categories CAT IV 600 V and CAT III 1000 V. The sensor type is an uncooled microbolometer.

A very cool feature of this test instrument is that it has an integrated thermal imager. This makes it a very handy all-rounder for lots of different applications.

The basic package of the PCE-HDM 20 (without the current clamp) contains the meter itself, two test leads, a K-type thermocouple probe, two Li-ion batteries, a charger, a power plug + 3 attachments for power plug, an 8 GB microSD card, a magnet, a fabric loop a temperature adapter and a user manual.

For little money, this multimeter can easily be turned into a clamp meter. Follow this link to find some more clamp meters from PCE Instruments.
