The AEMC® MR Series AC/DC Probes are professional AC/DC current probes designed to extend current measuring capabilities of DMMs, oscilloscopes and other instruments. They are built to the latest safety and performance standards, including the CE Mark and UL approval. Two different hook-shaped jaws are offered, both permitting the user to “pry” or “hook” onto cables (will accept 2 x 500MCM) or even onto small bus bars. The MR Series probes use Hall effect technology and measure AC and DC current. The electronics and batteries are self-contained in the handles. The output of the AC/DC probes is 1mV/A and 10mV/A. The Model MR461 measures to 400AAc/600ADC . The Model MR461 has two ranges and an auto-zero push button (patent pending) for quick DC zeroing. There is no output filtering — True RMS with DC component measurements are possible. Phase shift is excellent, making the MR Series of current probes well suited for power and power quality applications. The Model MR461 is designed for oscilloscopes, waveform displaying instruments and other frequency sensitive displaying instruments with BNC inputs. index mail web
