BENNING CM 8

Power Analysis for Single-phase and Three-phase Main

Power Current-Clamp Multimeter BENNING CM 8

  • TRUE-RMS measurements up to 600 V, 600 A AC/DC
  • effective power measurements up to 360 kW
  • calculation of the power factor cos φ
  • indication of the load type (inductive, capacitive)
  • bipolar phase sequence test in three-phase mains
  • measuring inputs for voltage, resistance, continuity, diode, frequency and temperature
  • measurement of inrush currents (motors etc.)

Industrial environments requires TRUE RMS measuring instruments!

Non-linear loads arising e.g. from motor drives with adjustable speed, frequency converters or mains supply units for office equipment and LED lamps generate a reactive power in the mains. As a result, multimeters and current clamps working with the so-called averaging measuring method ("RMS") will display the measured values with reduced accuracy.

In many cases and particularly in industrial environments, it is therefore absolutely necessary to use state-of-the-art "TRUE RMS" measuring instruments. The "TRUE RMS" measuring method indicates the actual effective value of an alternating current correctly – irrespective of whether the signal waveform of the current is sinusoidal or distorted.
