Flir - The World’s Only Standalone Flexible Clamp Meters- Thursday, July 30, 2015

Simplify Current Measurements with the New FLIR CM55 & CM57

Make it easier to take accurate current measurements with FLIR’s new CM55/57 flexible clamp meters. Made with narrow, flexible coil clamps instead of a traditional hard jaw, the FLIR CM55 and CM57 snake, bend, and maneuver around obstacles so you can easily take measurements in tight or awkward spots – even in deep, crowded cabinets.

Tackle multiple conductor measurements with true RMS AC current up to 3,000 Amps, and take readings from a safe distance with remote viewing via iOS® and Android™ smartphones or tablets.

To get the same flexibility and maneuverability of the FLIR CM55/57 with your existing clamp meter or DMM, check out the FLIR TA72/74 universal flex current probe accessory. It works with most DMMs and clamp meters of every brand, giving you the best readings.
