The Pearson Electronics Clamp-on Current Monitor consists of two parts that may be separated to allow clamping around the conductor to be monitored. Three sets of plug and socket contacts are used to make electrical connections between the two parts. To avoid damage to these contacts, care should be used when separating the two parts of the current monitor. After releasing the latches, the unit will be held together by the electrical contacts. Grasp both parts of the current monitor through the center hole and pull the two parts straight apart. Follow the instructions listed under Current Monitor Instruction Guide to make your measurement.
