In a single meter you’ll have two readings of ampere and volts on the SC53. One display is dedicated to ampere and the other you can choose yourself. Non-contact voltage measurement is of course a vital advantage of this DMM. While you are measuring a current with this instrument, you can simultaneously measure another parameter like capacitance, resistance, voltage or temperature. So you get the work done faster.
In addition to voltage, current and resistance, the SC53 measures capacitance and temperature. Voltage ranges available here are 4, 40, 400 and 600 volts. This is true for both AC and DC systems. The accuracy level for DC voltage is ±.5%. This is a bit worse for AC.
Ampere ranges measurable with the meter are 40 and 400A and accuracy is ±2.0%. Capacitor measuring ranges are 4, 40, 400µF, 4mF and correctness is varied by ±3.0%. The SC53 measures temperature up to a maximum value of 400°F and its accurate by ±1.0%.
You can test continuity of a circuit as well with this meter. A beeper is there to indicate a maximum of 25Ω path resistance.
The DMM SC53 has quite a lot of advantages over competitors’ equivalent clamp meters, including the most obvious:
- Dual display
- Non-contact voltage (NCV) function
- Direct AC ampere (400A) measurement
- Temperature measurement
- Typical jaw to operate with one hand
- Data hold function
The package with Fieldpiece SC53 contains the clamp meter, vinyl test leads, 3 lithium-ion batteries, operating manual and a carrying case ANC4. So you can start working immediate after you receive the consignment. An NCV function alerts you before you go in contact with a live circuit. Above all, this Clamp meter is designed with better safety features for field use and it should be highly convenient to use in the field. Even a novice should be able to use it safely.
