RS Pro IPM242 Power Clampmeter

From RS PRO, this IPM242 clamp meter serves as a first line of defence for spot checking and verifying system conditions before deploying more specialised tools. Featuring a full range of diagnostic capabilities including phase sequence, power & power factor, total harmonics distortion & individual harmonics, inrush current and low pass filter, They are rated CAT IV 600 V, CAT III 1000 V with voltage measurement up to 1000 V ac/dc. The new innovative navigation system eliminates confusing push buttons, and replaces them with a single joystick allowing the selection of functions directly on the display.

It functions as a multimeter and analyzer with a clamp that is ideal for multifunctions including current and voltage measurements.

Battery-powered for maximum portability, and with a large backlit screen, this current clamp meter is ideal for on-the-go applications in almost any environment.

It is also supplied in a carry case to keep the clampmeter safe and secure during transit.

This multifunction current clamp meter is designed for current measurement in electrical testing, and combines a digital multimeter with a clamping current sensor. The nature of the clamp means that it can fit around a wire at any point to sense AC and DC Current as well as inrush current. This has the advantage of allowing electricians to take a reading from a wire without touching it, which is both more convenient and safer than other methods.

They are used for measuring high levels of current in service and maintenance applications. They are also used when installing electrical equipment.

True RMS (Root Mean Square) reading has advantages over average RMS reading in that it compensates for interfering electronic loads or distorted sinewaves to give an accurate reading.

RS PRO aims to be your go-to brand when you need reliability, quality, and affordability. We source high-quality tools and parts from trusted sources and employ expert testing to build a brand you can rely on.
When it comes to test and measurement equipment, RS PRO has an extensive range of solutions. From electrical to environmental measurement, we offer calibrated and multi-function instruments to suit your needs.
