EVERETT, Wash. February 2, 2016 – Amprobe® introduces the Amprobe ACD-14-PRO Dual Display 600 A TRMS Clamp Multimeter with a large backlit LCD dual display that simultaneously displays voltage and amperage measurements to speed troubleshooting, including voltage drop tests. The ACD-14-PRO offers a complete range of measuring functions for electrical and HVAC applications.
Voltage drop testing is required by National Electrical Code (NEC). It defines the maximum percentage of the voltage drop between maximum voltage at zero current and minimum voltage at maximum current, ensuring electrical equipment and motors are working within specified voltage to avoid potential damage to electrical components. The dual display on the ACD-14-PRO allows technician to easily monitor both variables at the same time.
The ACD-14-PRO features True-RMS for accurate voltage measurements in noisy electrical environments, low pass filter for current and voltage measurements on variable frequency drives, and in-rush current measurements to verify maximum current surge during motor start-ups. Its amp-tip function enables precise measurement of low current down to 0.1 A on small diameter wires for reliable, accurate measurements.
For HVAC technicians, the ACD-14-PRO measures temperature with the included thermocouple, capacitance for start-up and run capacitors, and dc micro amps for flame sensor testing.
“The Amprobe ACD-14-PRO is packed full of features so electrical and HVAC technicians can do more with a single tool,” said Amprobe Business Unit Manager, Jarek Bras. “By measuring and displaying voltage and amps concurrently, the ACD-14-PRO quickly tests compliance to the NEC voltage drop test standard to avoid component damage.”
The Amprobe ACD-14-PRO is safety rated CAT III 600 V and comes complete with test leads, banana plug K-type thermocouple, two AAA batteries, manual, and carrying case.
