New AC/DC Current Clamps

Our range of AC/DC current clamps have proved very popular especially for automotive diagnostics. We are pleased to announce that we now have two new clamps that have been designed specifically to reduce stray pickup when working in noisy electrical environments.

The new 60A and 600A clamps have additional screening in the body along with a three meter screened cable terminating in a BNC connector that can be plugged directly in any oscilloscope.
