The AEMC F05 is a high performance clamp-on meter built into a rugged compact sized case, with exceptional ergonomic design and extraordinary measurement possibilities.

Integrating a fast microprocessor sampling at a high rate, the F05 is completely automatic and performs TRMS measurements on the most distorted waveforms. The Model F05 automatically detects AC or DC in Voltage and Current. It has a V-Live™ function to warn of the use of live circuits or elevated voltages. The Model F05 can measure in-rush currents from 1 cycle up to 10 cycles and frequency. It also measures Phase Rotation (using only two leads!), Power Factor and Power. Other features include: auto-ranging, 4000-count display and Auto-Off.
