Reading Current using ADC 20 and 600A AC/DC Current Clamp

Postby ADS » Tue Jun 01, 2010 9:04 am

Hi All,

I have the (PP266) current clamp connected to the ADC 20. I have cut the plug off and connected the cable to channel 8 and AG.
However, i cannot get the clamp to measure any current.
Can anyone help?

Thanks

Hi,
Are you trying to measure AC current? The ADC-20 is not fast enough to capture 50Hz. If you are measuring DC current then you should be getting 1mV read on the ADC-20 for each Amp through the clamp.
