Pearson Electronics is pleased to introduce two new Wide-Band Hinged Clamp-on Current Monitors with fast rise times. The models 8585C and 8590C feature a 2.0 and 2.5 nanosecond rise times, a ½ inch and 1 inch aperture, and are hinged for easy operation. The new design incorporates Pearson’s wide band frequency response in a demountable configuration for use on fixed conductors.
Both models have a 1.0 V/A sensitivity, a 3dB bandwidth from approximately 1.0 KHz to 200 MHz, and a 5 Ampere rms current rating. Accuracy of 1%, or less, is obtainable across the mid-band. Pulse currents up to 500 Amperes can be viewed. Other new hinged clamp-on designs feature a range of transfer impedance from 0.01 V/A to 1.0 V/A allowing for accurate measurements at lower frequencies. A typical model has a 3 dB bandwidth of 25Hz to 15 MHz, with some models as low as 5 Hz. All of the new hinged clamp-ons are featured in our Clamp-on Current Monitor section along with existing custom and stock designs.
