Earth leakage is just one parameter

Published:  13 December, 2018

With the 18th Edition’s increased emphasis on earth leakage and the associated problems, electricians are being encouraged to get a dedicated clamp-meter. However, METREL, a provider of innovative test solutions, says it thinks this is a wasted opportunity, and that’s why its earth leakage clamp meter, MD 9272, includes a range of power quality functions too.

With Appendix 17 of the 18th Edition, introducing energy efficiency and its measurements, such as W (Real Power), VAR (Reactive Power), VA (Apparent Power), Power Factor and Harmonic Distortion, the company says customers don’t have to go out and buy yet another tester as the Metrel earth leakage clamp meter can measure all these parameters for the cost of an ordinary clamp meter.
