The AEMC Model 512 Clamp-On Meter is a general purpose professional clamp-on meter that measures up to the toughest standards. It is built into a rugged mechanical case and is designed using quality polycarbonate materials. This meter offers a complete set of measurement ranges and is in compliance with international safety and quality standards to ensure professional and reliable measuring tools. The Model 512 has Auto-Ranging and provides the best measurement range and resolution for troubleshooting. It also has a high resolution 40A range.

The Model 512 measures AC Amps, AC Volts, as well as DC Volts, Ohms, Continuity (with beeper), Frequency (from V or A)and have a Diode Test function. The Models 512 is sized for comfortable, one-handed operation. The tapered and hooked jaw design facilitates maneuvering in crowded wiring and breaker panels, making it easy to select conductors. The jaw opening accommodates one 750MCM cable or two 350MCM cables. The large and easy-to-read 4000-count LCD features comprehensive user information symbols, such as low battery, polarity, overload, and an analog bargraph for easy trend readings. The Data Hold function freezes the measurement for later viewing, Min/Max, and a fast 1ms Peak Hold function for capture of signals.

Applications include:

  • Commercial, industrial, residential and HVAC troubleshooting
  • Power panel, junction box and battery bank monitoring
  • AC or DC motor testing
  • Power plant troubleshooting
  • Electrical testing and troubleshooting on traditional and non-linear loads
