CLAMP ON EARTH TESTER FT6381

Lightweight Ground Resistance Tester with Bluetooth® Data Transfer

To Be Discontinued

The FT6381 measure grounding resistance simply by clamping to multiple-grounded ground wires. No auxiliary grounding rod is needed, and there is no need to disconnect the ground wire from the grounding rod. The compact, low-profile sensor can be used to clamp ground wires with ease, and also provide AC current measurement functionality and can measure currents ranging from leakage current on the order of several mA to load currents of up to 60 A.

CAT IV 600 V

Basic specifications

Accuracy guaranteed: 1 year, Accuracy guarantee period after adjustment made by Hioki: 1 year
Measurement principle Instrument has two cores for voltage injection and current measurement. From the defined voltage and measured current, the total circuit loop resistance is calculated
Note: For multi grounded systems only. In a multi-grounded system, the larger the number of grounding poles, the more accurate the measured value.
Earthing resistance range 0.20 Ω (0.01 Ω resolution) to 1600 Ω (20 Ω resolution), 10 ranges, Zero suppression: Less than 0.02 Ω,
Accuracy: ±1.5 % rdg. ±0.02 Ω
AC Current range 20.00 mA (0.01 mA resolution) to 60.0 A (0.1 A resolution), 5 ranges, Zero suppression: Less than 0.05 mA,
Accuracy: ±2.0 % rdg. ±0.05 mA (30 Hz to 400 Hz, True RMS), Crest factor 5.0 or less (for the 60 A range, 1.7 or less)
Max. allowable input 100 A AC continuous, AC 200 A for 2 minutes or shorter (at 50/60 Hz, requires derating at frequency)
Max. rated voltage to earth 600 V AC CAT IV
Memory function 2000 data
Alarm function For resistance measurement and current measurement, Beeps when measured value is less than or greater than threshold
