PicoBNC+ Current Clamp

PicoBNC+™ PICO-TA388 2000A Current Clamp

To take advantage of the PicoBNC+ capabilities, Pico Technology has changed from the PICO-TA167 2000A/200A Clamp to this new model, which is powered from the laptop via the Scope. The shape of the new clamp is different to the PICO-TA167, resulting in changes to foam cut-outs, and has a narrow-width profile.

The 2000A Clamp is automatically recognised by the PicoScope software when it is connected to the Scope and is auto-ranged in the software. Hence, there is no requirement for manual switching of ranges. The Clamp is automatically zeroed by the software when it is connected to the scope thereby eliminating the manual zero adjustment.

There is a minor price adjustment compared to the exisiting BNC PICO-TA167, which makes this new Clamp a very attractive option given the elimination of batteries and the automatic, plug-and-play features provided.

PicoBNC+ TA473 Current Clamp

PicoBNC+™ PICO-TA473 60A Current Clamp

To take advantage of the PicoBNC+ capabilities, Pico Technology has changed from the PICO-TA234 30A Clamp and the PICO-TA018 60A Clamp to this new model, which is powered from the laptop via the Scope. The shape of the new clamp is different from the PICO-TA234 and PICO-TA018, resulting in changes to foam cut-outs. Furthermore, the performance is substantially better than the PICO-TA018.

The new 60A Camp is automatically recognised by the PicoScope software when it is connected to the Scope. Hence, there is no requirement for manual switching of ranges. The Clamp is automatically zeroed by the software when it is connected to the scope thereby eliminating the manual zero adjustment.

There is a minor price adjustment compared to the BNC PICO-TA234, which makes this new Clamp a very attractive option, given the elimination of batteries, the very high resolution offered and the automatic, plug-and-play features provided.
