If you are doing current signature analysis, I would say you can use any clampon probe that 1 - has a high enough range (typically 5A if you are monitoring the secondary circuit of ct's) and 2 - has a spec for output voltage per input current (you don't want output current). You'll need to go into your vibration software and select the proper scaling (millivolts per amp) for the sensor you are using. If you are reading off ct secondary you can also set up the scaling so that everything...

I have not seen a product on the market that meets the OP requirements. Most of the current clamp-on transformers that I have seen with voltage output do not provide a dynamic signal. Be sure to check the specifications. I made my own set up from a standard Fluke clamp-on current transformer with a small interface box containing a resistor and BNC output connector. Walt

dear all i am interesting to buy a current clamp to use it for vibration analyzer by bnc connection to perform high voltage current signature motor analysis . pls suggest applicable clamp by model and its brand. best regards

I'm not sure what you're referring to, but should be easy to judge from the spec sheet. If it lists a scaling with some output millivolt AC per input amps ac, then I'd consider it dynamic. If it talks about hooking up to oscilloscopes or gives a frequency range that gives further confirmation The probe we used is from Omega and labeled HHM42. I couldn't find a spec sheet on that particular model, but but looks like any of these in the Omega HHM70 series linked below would work as long as...

El'Pete, Looks like this product line should provide AC current as a voltage signal (waveform and spectrum) with available BNC adapter, as you indicated. http://www.omega.com/temperature/pdf/HHM70.pdf Walt

Hi...i am a new user here. As per my knowledge your vibration software and select the proper scaling for the sensor you are using. If you are reading off ct secondary you can also set up the scaling so that everything displays in ct primary units.

The Omega units above are very good. However, they use Hall effect technology to measure both AC and DC current. Unless you have a specific need for DC I would look for something else. Hall effect units can be a little touchy if you're not experienced with them, and even then putting them in a different plane from where they were zeroed can give an erroneous reading.

correct sensitivity for the clamp

Ayman Gamal ·
what is the correct sensitivity for the clamp when using it in CSI 2140?

Are you referring to the current measuring clamp for motor's electrical signature? If it is so, this setup requires a special configuration which (I believe) is explained in the data collector manual. Regards- Ali M. Al-Shurafa
