The TA018 current clamp is ideal for use with PicoScope automotive oscilloscopes for measuring currents between 10 mA and 60 A. This enables the PicoScope to display current waveforms for fuel injectors and fuel pumps.
The current clamp has two calibration settings, set by a slider switch on the handle of the probe.
- 1 mV/10 mA (100 mV = 1 A)
— use this for testing currents up to 20 A.
- 1 mV/100 mA (10 mV = 1 A)
— use this for testing current up to 60 A.
In use there is no need to break into the circuit or disturb the isolation as the opening jaws simply clamp around the current carrying conductor. No electrical contact is required.
These current clamps have been designed for use with PicoScope oscilloscopes and feature additional screening to reduce noise pickup. The Pico TA018 current clamp can either be purchased as an accessory within one of our popular diagnostic kits or individually under the packing code PP264.

ELECTRICAL (At 23± 5°C, 70% R.H. maximum )
Effective Measurement Range
1mV/10mA: 10mA to 20A DC or rms AC for 200mV range of the oscilloscope.
1mV/100mA: 10mA to 20A DC or rms AC for 200mV range of the oscilloscope.
20A to 60A DC or rms AC for 2V range of the oscilloscope.
System accuracy: Current clamp accuracy + DMM accuracy.
For example, if the measured conductor carries a 100mA current, set the current clamp to 1mV/10mA range to get an output signal of 10mV. Suppose the accuracy of the units is 2.0%, the tolerance limit should be between 10.20mV maximum and 9.80mV minimum.
