LOWELL, Ark., Jan. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Depleted batteries are a serious problem for fleets. Parasitic loads can be especially frustrating because they drain batteries even when batteries are not being used. Purkeys' Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter helps detect the existence of parasitic load by accurately measuring low current in electrical systems without disconnecting any cords from the power source.
Technicians equipped with Purkeys' milliamp ammeter don't need to break the circuit to measure current. This ammeter precisely measures the magnetic field generated by current flowing through the conductor by clamping its interlocking jaws around a wire.
The clip-on ammeter allows for accurate and efficient diagnosis of electrical systems and is able to accurately measure low current down to a milliamp.
Vehicles that are not used over long periods of time can have their batteries unexpectedly drained by parasitic load. Batteries left in this discharged condition can receive internal damage and need to be replaced. Technicians that use Purkeys' Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter can quickly identify these issues and reduce battery depletion and damage.
For more than 25 years, Purkeys has delivered innovative, cost-effective solutions for the electrical needs of heavy-duty fleets. They look at the electrical system as a whole, then strategically work to achieve the maximum return on investment while reducing maintenance costs and equipment usage. Their level of expertise has garnered more than 10 U.S. patents and attracted the attention of fleets, OEMs, and other industry leaders throughout North America.
