WAVETEK Meterman, represented by Fluke Australia , has announced the ELS2 ac line splitter for taking residential line measurements without the need to split ac electrical lines.
The Meterman ELS2 is a current-clamp accessory that works with any ac current clamp or clamp meter.
In normal practice, a current clamp measures current by encircling a single conductor. Without a line splitter to measure the load, the ac power line needs to be split. Dual lines also must be separated to achieve proper readings.
The ELS2 provides a cleanly split current loop for accurate measurement. Additionally, a 10 times current magnifying loop is provided in the device for accurately measuring low-current.
The ELS2 ac line splitter has convenient built-in jacks for voltage sag testing.
