B+K Precision Corporation, represented by Unispan Instruments , has announced the addition of the Model 316 ac/dc milliamp clamp meter to its product line.
The small size of this lightweight, portable, battery-powered digital clamp meter makes it practical to use where a traditional sized meter may be too cumbersome.
Because of its smaller size, the Model 316 can measure current levels more than ten times lower than traditional sized meters, which can only measure current levels down to around five amps.
The Model 316 features autoranging capabilities and is an ideal tool for evaluating or repairing electronic equipment.
Features include low cost; pocket size; 4 digit display; auto power off; 1mA resolution with minimum input of 70mA; auto ranging; peak hold function; data hold function; touch zero function; and analogue signal function
The Model 316 provides safe, non-invasive measurement of up to 100A ac (±3.5% +10dgt), up to 100A dc (±4.5% +10dgt), up to 600V ac (±1.5% +5dgt), up to 600V dc (±1% +2dgt), and resistance of up to 10kΩ.
The unit's unique data hold feature allows the user to freeze the LCD display reading.
Other features include a front panel mounted, easy to read 4-digit LCD display, automatic range selection, over-range and low battery indicators, automatic power off after 30 minutes, and a maximum jaw opening of 12mm.
The Model 316 utilises two AAA batteries with an expected life of approximately 45 hours. Its compact size and lightweight makes the Model 316 ideal for use in cramped quarters.
The meter comes with a standard one-year warranty, instruction manual, batteries, and carrying case. It is available for immediate delivery.
