clamp probe with BNC - compatible with DMM ?

(1/1)

Kiriakos-GR:
Well I found one Clamp probe AC/DC in good price , but it haves an BNC connector.
And officially called as Clamp for Oscilloscopes.

It has double output as  1A/10mV  &  1A/1mV  , and probably True RMS as it has a range up to 10 kHz.

So the question is , is it also compatible with DMM , If I use one BNC to banana adapter ?

alm:
Probably, assuming it doesn't take other signals like power from the scope. The major difference is that a scope's input is 1Mohm, and most DMM's are 10Mohm. But since it behaves like a voltage source, a higher impedance should be fine. The output has probably the same waveform as the input (limited by the bandwidth), so there's nothing true-RMS about it, the conversion to DC is done by the DMM.

True, I was referring about the Pickup bandwidth , As it has from 40Hz to 10kHz bandwidth .
