MD 9260 TRMS Photovoltaic Clamp Meter CAT III 1500 V DC New

Clamp meters

The MD 9260 is the first Metrel instrument to support measurements up to 1500 V with CAT III safety. Its voltage range and safety make it useful in highly demanding environments like solar power plants, wind power plants, or other high power environment using DC current. It has 2000 A AC/DC current range and can additionally measure resistance, capacitance, frequency and temperature – in short a well-rounded multimeter-style tool for use in power applications.
