Mississauga, ON, February 07, 2007 - Fluke Electronics Canada, an industry innovator in compact, professional electronic test tools, today announced the Fluke 771 Milliamp Process Clamp Meter, which measures 4-20 mA output signals from transmitters in process and industrial control system applications without breaking the current loop. The Fluke 771 Milliamp Clamp Meter delivers 0.2 % accuracy with resolution and sensitivity to 0.01 mA for testing and troubleshooting PLC (programmable logic controller) and control system analog I/O (input/output).
The Fluke 771 is designed specifically for use in environments where it is impractical to shut down processes or put systems into “safe” mode in order to break the loop and place a meter in series with the circuit and take measurements. It features a unique detachable clamp that can be used docked or detached via its extension cable to facilitate measurement in tight spaces, a measurement spotlight that illuminates wires in dark enclosures, and automatic battery saving features. The Fluke 771 has a dual backlit display that shows both mA measurement and percent of 4-20 mA span, and a Hold function to capture and display changing measurements for convenient viewing. Users can also measure 10-50 mA signals in older control systems using the 99.9 mA range.
