EMC Hire supplies a range of current probes to help Engineers measure a wide range of current flows in power supplies and electrical circuits, covering AC/DC or just AC or DC current.
EMC Hire supplies primarily clamp-on current probes, otherwise known as magnetic core current probes. This is an indirect technique in which the probe is clamped around the current-carrying wire or conductor and makes non-contact current measurements.
The probe gives a measurable voltage signal proportional to the amplitude of the measured current. The advantage of this technique is that it is non-invasive and isolated, so the probe is not electronically connected to the device under test.
The advantages of using clamp-on current probes include:
To ensure you select the correct current probe for your application, assess the following questions:
