EVERETT, Wash., March 30, 2011 - Amprobe introduces its suite of Navigator Clamp Meters, which provide strong troubleshooting capabilities and quick, easy-to-use, one-handed measurements. The clamps feature a unique joystick control that allows quick selection of a full range of diagnostic capabilities, including phase sequence, power and power factor, total harmonics distortion and individual harmonics, inrush current, and low pass filter. The Amprobe Navigator Clamp Meters are ideal for electrical and HVAC technicians in commercial and industrial environments.
The series of CAT IV 600V and CAT III 1000V Navigator Clamp Meters can measure voltage up to 1000V AC/DC. Designed for the toughest electrical applications, these clamps can take a snapshot of harmonics and power quality issues, allowing technicians to better define why equipment may be malfunctioning and determine if more specialized tools are needed to solve the problem.
The navigation system eliminates multiple and confusing push buttons, replacing them with a joystick that technicians use to select functions directly on the large, backlit display. Simply highlight the desired measurement feature using the joystick and press to select.
"Amprobe Navigator Clamps Meters provide powerful troubleshooting capabilities that are quick and easy to use," said Amprobe General Manager Jasmine Khambatta. "The innovative joystick simplifies the user interface and allows technicians to quickly select the functions they need to spot check and verify systems before deploying more specialized tools or incurring additional costs."
