The FLIR CM82, CM83, and CM85 are industrial-grade power clamp meters engineered with advanced power analysis and variable frequency drive (VFD) filtering functions to meet the needs of electrical troubleshooters. The CM83 and CM85 meters offer additional features including Bluetooth® technology to connect compatible mobile devices for remote viewing and sharing, and METERLiNK® technology, to wirelessly embed electrical readings into radiometric infrared images on compatible FLIR thermal cameras.
The True RMS clamp meters provide VFD Mode for superior accuracy while working on VFD-controlled equipment, and advanced power efficiency and harmonics measurements enable system-level performance analysis.
Designed for convenience and ease of use, the CM82/CM83/CM85 feature powerful LED lamps to assist with clamping and are bright enough to serve as a primary work light. Take advantage of remote viewing from your smartphone or tablet via Bluetooth, and benefit from METERLiNK technology to wirelessly embed readings into thermal images on compatible FLIR cameras (CM83/CM85 only).
Equipped with Inrush mode to capture fast AC Current spikes during appliance start-up, and phase- rotation testing to ensure the motor and power source are aligned, the CM82/CM83/CM85 have a dependable functionality that’s vital to professionals. The meters are also tested to withstand a 2m drop and come with a Limited Lifetime warranty.
Accurately analyze non-sinusoidal waveforms and noisy signals in VFD-controlled equipment
Locate noise from different electrical draws to realign harmonics and reduce electro-mechanical equipment stress
Analyze three-phase systems to measure power draw and verify if power is evenly balanced
Measure hard and soft start-up inrush current spikes while equipment is ramping up
Monitor power quality improvements, such as start-up realignments on three-phase equipment
Double-molded case design and extra thick rubber on the corners absorbs shock to enhance job-site reliability and long-haul durability
