Fluke 773 Milliamp Process Clamp Meter
Fluke 773 Milliamp Process Clamp Meter saves time and money by measuring output signals without shutting down the system
The Fluke 773 milliamp clamp meter is accurate and versatile. It saves time and money by measuring 4–20 mA signals five times faster than with traditional DMMs, and without breaking the loop. That means you can troubleshoot a live device without having to power down and possibly miss something going on in the process.
The 773 is ideal for troubleshooting transmitters, valves, and programmable logic controllers (PLCs) found in process plants. It measures low level dc current and correlates process indication with a real physical value. And it measures up to 99.0 mA non-contact, including 10 to 50 mA signals in older control systems.
The 773 also sources and measures dc voltage, so it can be used to troubleshoot voltage input and output devices. You can detach the clamp section of the meter and use it as a remote jaw, connected to the main body by an extension cable to make it easier to take measurements in tight spaces. Plus, automatic power-off features save battery life so you can work longer without changing the batteries.
Other useful features:
Sources DC voltage to test input devices that accept a 1-5V or 0 to 10V signal
Simultaneously measures the mA signal with the clamp and sources a mA signal
Measures mA signals for PLC and control system analog I/O
Simulates 4-20 mA signals for testing control system I/O
Features a detachable clamp with extension cable for measurements in tight locations
Extends battery life with auto-off and backlight timeout
Captures and displays changing measurements with Hold function
Measures 4 to 20 mA signals with in-circuit measurement
Includes simultaneous mA in-circuit measurement with 24V loop power for powering and testing transmitters
Offers mA or voltage output linear ramp or 25% step output
Provides scaled mA output to provide a continuous mA signal that corresponds to the 4 to 20 mA signal measured by the mA clamp
Enables milliamp signal logging to a separate logging device without breaking the loop
Applies a mA input signal to a device and measure its’ 4-20 mA output on devices such as valves or mA isolators
Dual backlit display with both mA measurement and percent of 4 to 20 mA span
Measurement Spotlight to illuminate hard to see wires in dark enclosure
Measures 10 to 50 mA signals in older control systems using the 99.9 mA range
Automatically changes the 4 to 20 mA output for remote testing
