The rugged Chauvin C.A 6417 clamp is designed for day-to-day use. The weight has been limited by using high-performance magnetic materials. To ensure more comfortable use, the clamp’s jaw benefits from a new feature: a force compensation system installed on the trigger. Minimal effort is required to keep the clamp open in order to optimize handling of the product while reducing user fatigue.

The C.A 6417 earth clamp, delivered in a carrying case, is ideal for quick earth-loop resistance measurements. 600V CAT IV, it displays the earth voltage with a dangerous voltage alarm and provides additional safety during measurement. It is particularly easy to use thanks to ergonomic innovations such as a force compensation system to keep the clamp open without any effort and an OLED display, offering visibility over an angle of 180° whatever the lighting conditions.

Equipped with Bluetooth communication, the C.A 6417 clamp can be used with the GTC and/or DATAVIEW® PC software to view the values in real time, recover the measurements and create standard or customized measurement reports. There is also an ANDROID application for tablets & smartphones for viewing real-time graphs, GPS geolocation of the measurements and email distribution of the measurements with graphs, comments and photos.
