EXTECH DC400 400A DC Mini Clamp Meter
Extech DC400 Mini DC Clamp Meter
The compact Extech DC400 is a very simple-to-use, mini DC clamp meter with a right-sized jaw designed to reach in small areas while providing 10 mA resolution and very low-current sensitivity. This CAT II-rated clamp meter can be used in essential current-related troubleshooting applications in automotive, fleet maintenance, heavy equipment, marine, and motorcycle repair.
Depending on a given job, you can select from two DC current ranges: 40 amp and 400 amp. The 40-amp range with 10 mA resolution is optimized for finding problems where low current variances would be missed by standard clamp meters. The current-only functionality of this clamp meter means you twist the dial to one of two ranges and clamp your wire to measure — twist-and-go — no additional configuration is needed. Whether you are troubleshooting a truck’s alternator or a yacht’s genset. The two DC ranges and go-anywhere 1.2-inch (30mm) jaw opening is compact enough to fit in tight locations, such as inside engine bays and instrument panels. The useful Data Hold function freezes the display while the one-touch zero function makes it easy to perform relative measurements. The 4-digit (4,000 count) readout is easy to read, and Auto Power Off preserves battery life.
