Phase shift

Post by mick661966 » Fri Apr 10, 2009 5:25 pm

Are there any possibilities to compensate the phase shift of a clap meter?
The phase shift depends of the frequency. It is nearly 0 at 500Hz but at 50Hz it is more than 10 degrees.

Any ideas?

Hi unfortunately the answer is no, however as long as your clamp is within the frequency range provided you should not get any significant changes in phase shift.

Kind regards

OK, thank you ziko for the information.

The clamp meter is a KYORITSU 8112BNC. It has good frequency range from 30Hz to 100kHz and is very sensitive 1000mA=1000mV. But at 50Hz there is reasonable phase shift.

Does anybody know another clampmeter (BNC) with about the same range and sensivity?

regards

Mick
