Hall current clamp

  1. I currently use a Fluke i30s currnet clamp which uses a 9V PP3 battery
    and no external power option. The trouble is the battery goes flat
    during data logging even if it only for half a day. And the zero
    drifts with voltage.

    Any suggestions of a haal current clamp suitable for data loggging
    apps?

    I'll state the obvious (at least to me).
    Buld a 9 volt regulator circuit and attach the proper connector to plug
    into the i30s. (you might need to notch the cover to allow the
    power wire to exit the i30s)
    If you have 120vac available use a wall wart to drive the
    regulator. If you don't have ac, get a 12v battery large enough to run
    the system for as long as needed.
    Need further info? Just ask.
