The Kyoritsu Clamp Meter is a device used for measuring the resistance that is applied to an electric circuit. This device was designed by Dr. Takeshiba, a Japanese scientist, and he used it during his time in France. While in France he got the idea for the idea of the clamp meter from working with certain resistors that measure resistance. Thus he came up with this wonderful device.
How Does the Kyoritsu Clamp Meter Work?
A clamp meter can be used to measure the power supplied to various components and compare the value against preset standards that are specified. This helps in accurate measurement of the electrical current and results can be interpreted easily. These clamps are often used in many applications and these days they are preferred over resistors because they give very accurate readings. When measurements are made using this meter, a current reference voltage is also required so that the meter can perform to its best. This voltage reference is placed between the mains and the meter.
The uses of the clamp meter are vast and it is used in various kinds of electrical appliances. The application, where it is preferred more than any other device is the measurement of the electrical resistance. Other uses include in the aviation industry, where the resistance levels are very important when flying various types of aircraft. With the help of the meter you can determine the power required for the aircraft engine and other electrical components and thus can help reduce the hazards.
