Clamp multimeters are often used mainly thanks to their ability to measure AC (and even DC) current even without a disconnection of a wire. But it´s only one basic feature, which more sophisticated devices can use even for another purposes, like comfortable measuring of power and power factor. Benning CM8 is a device able to provide detailed information regarding power conditions in a measured circuit and measure much more than usual clamp meters, for example:

● measuring of inrush current

● measuring of effective power in 4 ranges - 4/40/400/600 kW + calculation of a power factor in a full range -1,00...0...+1,00

● VAC true RMS in a frequency range of 45-500Hz, high accuracy up to a crest factor of 3

● harmonic distortion with 0,1% resolution and sensitivity up to 25-th harmonic (ACV, ACA)

● measuring of DC current up to 600A (0.1A resolution)
It can be said, that Benning CM8 is a device, with which it´s possible to check even large circuits and for example find possible source of defects and similar. Thanks to a measurement of inrush current it´s able to give a real information about a load of a circuit and thus for example to give an information, whether it´s possible to add another device into a given circuit etc.


Detailed information about the CM8 will give you the Benning CM8 user guide and an overview of Benning measuring and testing devices.
