Current Clamp Details

Postby Tammy » Mon Oct 24, 2005 12:56 pm


I would like more information about the PP264 and the 300A current clamps. Do you have data sheets? I could not find any on your site.

I am specifically interested in the following:
1. Frequency range
2. Accuracy (usually listed as a percentage +/- minimum current)
3. Compatibility with non-picotech equipment

Is the PP264 more accurate for measuing low currents, like 100 mA?

A quick response would be most appreciated.

Thank you for your post.

The PP264 has a 20kHz frequency response. I do not have any information as to the accuracy or the frequency range of the 300A clamp. I would need to check this further.

I would not recommend the PP264 for measuring small currents as the smallest range on it only has a sensitivity of 10mA. Instead it is better to use shunt resistors for these measurements.

You should be able to connect to non-Pico equipment eith the clamps, I cannot see a reason why they wouldn't work.

Best Regards
