Description
More Info

This cost-effective low current probe is ideal for capturing waveforms from fuel pumps, injectors, relays, ignition and more. This probe can be used with just about any meter and lab scope capable of measuring DC voltage.

This low amp current probe can be used with scopes and meters such as the Pico, Fluke scopes, Interro, Vetronix, OTC, Tektronix, ATS. In essence it can be used with any scope/meter that displays a voltage in digital or waveform format.

This amp probe features shielded wire, shielded housing, and insulated BNC ensure an accurate signal.

Features
This current probe has the smallest nose (1" x 1/2") we have found.
Zero push button (not wheel).
Low battery indicator.
Lead terminates to banana plugs.

Specifications
Size at end of jaw: 1" wide x 1/2" thick x 2-1/4" long
Conductor opening: 9mm
Test Lead: 5' 9" long, terminates to insulated BNC
Probe Housing: 7-3/4" x 2-1/2"
Accuracy: ranges from 1.5% to 2% under 20A and up to 8% over 20A.
Range: 10mA-60A
Frequency response: Up to 20KHz.
1-year warranty.

 

 

 

 

Low Current Probe Comparison

AES compared the Generic Low Amp Probe (AES# 07-60-bnc) to the Fluke 80i-110s Low Current Probe . The Fluke probe sells for over $600.  Is it worth 6x the price?

 
 

Small Nose

The nose on this current probe measures 1-inch by 1/2-inch. As thick as your thumb and as wide as a US Quarter.

 
 

Fuel injector Current Waveform

Use the Generic Low Amp Probe (AES# 07-60) to measure injector cirucit current flow on sarurated, peak-and-hold and frequency modulated circuits. This example shows peak-and-hold injector current on a GM truck.

 
 

Primary Ignition Current Waveform

Use the Generic Low Amp Probe (AES# 07-60) to measure primary ignition current on Distributor, EI(DIS), and COP systems. Use this technique to spot bad coils, bad modules, simplify no-start diagnosis, etc.

 
 

Fuel Pump Current Waveform

Use the Generic Low Amp Probe (AES# 07-60) on fuel pump circuits to find bad commutators, brushes, worn pump mechanisms and more. A great way to predict pump failure before it happens and find the cause of certain intermittent problems. This technique applies to other electric motors as well such as blower motors, window motors, etc.

 
 

Scope voltage resolution limitations

Some scopes do not have very fine settings at low voltage levels, such as, 50mV per division. Since most low current probes have a 100mV/A output, this means that extremely low current waveforms such as from some injectors may be small and not very detailed. This is an issue with the scope, not the current probe. To overcome this, try using a "current multiplier". Coil a piece of wire 10 times. Place this coil in series with the circuit being tested. The measured current will now be ten times the actual current.
