Peak current measurement

Post by 19andre79 » Thu Jul 25, 2019 12:25 pm

Hi, first my English is not very good, please excuse any mistakes. I tried to measure the peak current on a 24VDC linear drive.
I used the oscilloscope 2405A together with the current clamp TA018. As a result, I have always received 23A peak. No matter if the drive was loaded or not. The peak current I expect but would have to be much higher. Is the equipment suitable for such a measurement?
Thank you very much for your effort!

Do you have the switch on the high current position ?
