Testing electrical current in buildings, vehicles, equipment or marine applications has been taken to the next level with the introduction of the new Projecta DT910 test meter in New Zealand.
Superceding Projecta’s popular DT900 digital clamp meter, the new DT910 is an all-in-one test meter that retains the vast array of applications of its predecessor, but packs even more functionality to reduce the tool count in the workshop or on the utility belt.
Loaded with features, but simple and intuitive to use, the DT910 is an all-in-one test meter that will quickly measure and accurately display a myriad of electrical test data.
A clamp meter is an electrical tester that combines both a voltmeter with a clamp-type current meter, but with an in-built current transformer, which can be used for testing any combination of AC or DC.
What separates a digital clamp meter like the DT910 from an ordinary multimeter is an ability to measure AC/DC current (up to 400 amps) without interfering with the test circuit, by way of a clamping mechanism that can test wiring up to 38mm in diameter. It is also capable of measuring low amp current flows, which have traditionally been difficult with some clamp meters.
And now it offers more practical options for the user. These include a new, non-contact voltage detector, which allows the user to safely measure AC live voltage without contact or breaking the wire insulation.
Projecta has also added a temperature tester that can display up to 250°C (300°C for short periods) and a capacitance tester that negates the need for a separate meter.
Like its predecessor, the DT910 also measures DC voltage and frequency, resistance and continuity, and can be used to test diodes as well.
A larger screen now offers better accuracy at lower currents and a ‘data hold’ function for capturing on-screen readings, whilst auto scaling provides voltage/resistance measurements in relevant scales for quick and easy readings. It is also designed and made to CE approval.
