Since 1991 we have been supplying the world with test and measurement equipment. At Pico we realize that your choice of test accessories can be almost as important as your choice of test equipment. Here you can purchase a variety of test and measurement accessories quickly and securely online.
Clamp-on current probes or “current clamps” enable you to measure currents without breaking the electrical circuit. Current clamps are designed with jaws that can be opened, placed around the conductor and clamped shut to form a magnetic loop around the conductor.
Current clamps offer a safe, cost-effective, simple and accurate way to take current measurements.
Our range of current clamps can be used with PicoScope Oscilloscopes and PicoLog Data Loggers, as well all major brands of oscilloscopes and multimeters.
The TA300 is a 100 kHz bandwidth, single-range 40 A AC or DC current probe using the D9 connector specific to the PicoScope 4444 differential oscilloscope. On connection with the scope, the probe is instantly sensed and the vertical range automatically set up in PicoScope software. The probe is also powered by the scope through the D9 connector.
Note: When using the PicoScope 4444 with USB power (no AC adaptor connected), sensor power is limited to a maximum of 3 x TA300 probes at once.
