YOKOGAWA CW10 Clamp-on power meter combines the basic functionality of a standard clamp on tester, digital multimeter and power monitor to initially diagnose maintenance issues before more expensive and sophisticated equipment may be required. Unit measures 600A ac-dc, 1000 ac-dc, 600 k ac-dc, power factor, total harmonic distortion, harmonics from 1st to 25th, resistance, and frequency. Other measurement and diagnostic capabilities include phase rotation, voltage detection, continuity check, diode test, inrush current and low pass filter. Unit’s joystick allows the user to easily select the preferred diagnostic function. The display is backlit when clamping and contains a 3.5 digit and bar graph display.
