ISO-TECH High-reliability and Cost-effective Clamp Meters from RS Components Enable Safe and Fast Current Measurements

Ideal for use by electricians and maintenance professionals, ergonomically designed and easy-to-use multimeters also provide highly accurate voltage and resistance measurement and continuity testing

Taiwan, 26 August 2014 :

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, has announced availability of two new high-reliability clamp meter products that are designed for making safe and non-intrusive current measurements in a range of electrical, panel and equipment maintenance applications.

Clamp meters are ideal tools for making spot checks and verifying system conditions before deploying more specialised tools and incurring additional costs. The compact and ergonomically designed ISO-TECH ILCM03A and ICM30R clamp meters come at prices that are approximately 30% cheaper than leading brands and are must-have devices for any electrician's or maintenance professional's toolbox.

The ILCM03A is primarily geared toward current leakage detection, while a key feature of the ICM30R is its ability to make true-RMS AC current readings. Both devices also offer reliable and accurate voltage and resistance measurements as well as continuity testing for circuit breaks.

The ILCM03A clamp meter is a highly portable device with compact dimensions of only 210 x 62 x 35.6mm. It also has a single large rotary function-selection switch enabling one-handed measurement and a large backlight 3.75-digit LCD with an analogue bar graph, making it a tool that is easy to use and easy to read in any environment. The meter also offers a large-jaw design that enables non-intrusive current measurement on cables and wires that are up to 30mm in diameter.

The ICM30R clamp meter integrates dual Hall sensors to provide reliable and accurate current measurements, and provides the true-RMS AC current value of both pure and distorted waveforms. The meter is also a highly portable and easy-to-use and -read device that features a special hand-guard design, which provides additional user protection that prevents direct contact with electrical conductors.

Manufactured and tested to international standards, both ISO-TECH clamp meters are rated to CAT II 600V and CAT III 300V, according to IEC 61010. The meters come with a three-year warranty and are available to purchase direct from RS stock globally.  For more information please visit
