Earth leakage current is the term that applies to the current flowing through the ground conductor into the ground. This can happen in any electrical installation and is most common in surrounding insulated conductors and in filters protecting electronic equipment.
This can be a common problem on a household, commercial or industrial scale as leakage currents can cause damage to your electrical equipment. This can disrupt the steps in the process or more seriously can directly affect human life
Leakage currents originate from old or damaged insulation of electrical equipment, which means lower resistance and allows significant current to flow. Longer capacitors will also have higher capacitance, causing more leakage current.
When to use a clamp meter to measure leakage current?
Leakage clamp meters are used to measure the current flowing through the conductor under test and these can be alternating or variable currents. In this case, the leakage current clamp meter will greatly support your application
In addition, leakage current clamp meters are also commonly used to measure earth leakage from RCDs, in order to minimize the risk of this problem, which is of course a big problem when you rely on RCD is an effective safety tool. Some regulations state that the total leakage current should not exceed 30% of the RCD rated residual current.
Where to buy ammeter to measure leakage current?
Leakage current clamp meter is an important device in the safety inspection of machines and operators, so it is necessary to use devices with high accuracy and safety.
