The AEMC® MR Series AC/DC Probes
are professional AC/DC current
probes designed to extend current
measuring capabilities of DMMs,
oscilloscopes and other instruments.
They are built to the latest safety and
performance standards, including the
CE Mark and UL approval. Two
different hook-shaped jaws are
offered, both permitting the user to
“pry” or “hook” onto cables (will
accept 2 x 500MCM) or even onto
small bus bars.

The MR Series probes use Hall effect
technology and measure AC and DC
current. The electronics and batteries
are self-contained in the handles. The
output of the AC/DC probes is 1mV/A
and 10mV/A. The Model MR561
measures to 1000AAC/1500AAC.

There is no output filtering — True
RMS with DC component measurements
are possible. Phase shift is
excellent, making the MR Series of
current probes well suited for power
and power quality applications.

The Model MR561 is designed for
oscilloscopes, waveform displaying
instruments and other frequency
sensitive displaying instruments with
BNC inputs.
