Fluke has introduced a Current Clamp Meter measuring 4-20mA DC that wirelessly relays measurements to other Fluke Connect enabled master units or the Fluke Connect mobile App. The Fluke a3004 FC Wireless DC Clamp Meter is a fully functional current clamp meter that measures 4mA to 20mA signals without ‘breaking the loop’. It is suitable for use by process control technicians and for industrial technicians maintaining PLCs and controls, as well as in automotive and HVAC applications.
The Fluke a3004 FC Wireless 4-20mA DC Clamp Meter features a detachable clamp with extension cable for measurements in tight locations and can be used as a standalone meter or as part of a system. A logging function enables the recording and saving of up to 65,000 measurements. It is suitable for measurement of 4-20mA control loops, 4-20mA signal measurements, testing analogue input/output signals and other low-level DC current measurements.
The Fluke Connect system allows maintenance technicians to wirelessly transmit measurement data from Fluke test tools such as the Fluke a3004 FC to their smart phone for secure storage on the cloud, thus enabling access by any team member in the field. Maintenance technicians make better, faster decisions when they have field access to maintenance records and when they can review measurements in real time with team members and supervisors who may be in different locations. Fluke Connect facilitates access to records by all team members wherever they are and at the same time increases the safety of technicians working with energised equipment.
The Fluke Connect app can be downloaded free from the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. More than 20 Fluke tools connect wirelessly with the Connect app, including digital multimeters, infrared cameras, insulation testers, process meters, and specific voltage, current and temperature meters.
