FLIR Industrial 1000 Amp Power Clamp w/VFD Mode and Bluetooth METERLiNK


  • CM85 1000A Power Clamp Meter with VFD and Bluetooth
  • VFD Mode: Accurately analyze non-sinusoidal waveforms and noisy signals in VFD-controlled equipment.
  • Harmonics Mode: Locate noise from different electrical draws to realign harmonics and reduce electro-mechanical equipment stress.
  • Phase Rotation: Analyze three-phase systems to measure power draw and verify if power is evenly balanced.
  • Inrush Current: Measure hard and soft start-up inrush current spikes while equipment is ramping up.
  • METERLiNK Compatibility: Embed electrical measurements into thermal images captured by METERLiNK-enabled FLIR IR cameras for easier documentation.
  • Power Factor and Active Power: Monitor power quality improvements, such as start-up realignments on three-phase equipment.
  • Bluetooth Connectivity: Connect to Android devices for remote diagnostics in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas. Also, upload data without the need for special cords.
  • Bright Dual-LED Worklights: Make your work safer/easier in poorly lit locations- especially useful when the lights are out or obstacles block your inspection targets.
  • Rugged & Shock-Resistant: Double-molded case design and extra thick rubber on the corners absorbs shock to enhance job-site reliability and long-haul durability.

Product Information

FLIR CM85 1000A Power Clamp Meter with VFD and Bluetooth.
Industrial-Grade Power Clamp Meter Tackles Noisy VFD Jobs
Discover the FLIR CM85, a powerful 1000A AC/DC clamp meter that offers advanced power analysis functions which adds confidence when making measurements in environments where loads are using switching electronics such as variable frequency drives (VFDs) and today’s growing range of high efficiency lighting options. Designed by leaders in innovation at FLIR Systems, the durable power clamp gets you results on tough jobs.

In addition to True RMS current and voltage measurements, the CM85’s VFD Mode leverages a low-pass filter that ensures accuracy even when distorted waveforms exist on electronic loads (such as VFD-controlled equipment).

Power quality testing and load studies (to plan for future system-wide capacity) demand essential power measurement capabilities that set the FLIR CM85 power clamp meter apart from other test equipment. Measure power up to 1000kW as well as Total Harmonic Distortion and harmonics to the 25th harmonic helping you find problems that could cause the malfunctioning, damage or failure of important components.

The fast-responding in-rush current mode enables the meter to display the highest current reading in the first 100 milliseconds after the trigger point. A capability that is ideal for getting to the root cause of nuisance tripping, spurious resets and transients.

Bluetooth Connectivity
Designed for today’s technician, the advanced FLIR CM85 connects via Bluetooth to Android smartphones and tablets using the FLIR Tools Mobile app. Now, you can monitor electrical readings on equipment in closed cabinets, with dangerous moving components, or with extreme temperatures – all from a safe distance. Use the app to share diagnostic results with colleagues or customers on-site or remotely—share as primary readings or within professional-looking reports that are easily created.

As part of the FLIR family, this innovative meter also communicates with METERLiNK-enabled FLIR IR cameras, helping you record electrical readings on thermal images in real time. Whether you’re working on complex electrical, mechanical or pump systems, you want tools that can work together to gather and record all the relevant data—temperature and electrical together on one thermal image. This not only means you save time, it also ensures accurate, coordinated documentation for PdM inspection reports.

About the CM85
The FLIR CM85 clamp meter offers both safety and versatility without compromising high performance. Take the CM85 amp probe on every job as it delivers with advanced meter functions including True RMS accuracy, VFD filter mode, Power Quality Mode (THD, harmonics, watts, phase rotation) AC/DC current and voltage measurement, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode-test, and continuity check. Use the fast-responding peak hold function to capture inrush currents and transients.

The 4-digit, 4,000 count display is LED-illuminated making it bright and easy to read from anywhere. Several one-button functions including data hold, min/max, and selectable auto- or manual-ranging. A relative function helps you “zero out” the meter. The large 1.45" (37mm) jaw opening handles conductors up to 1000 MCM.

The FLIR CM85 amp clamp has a CAT IV-1000V, CAT III-1000V overvoltage safety rating. NIST certification is available for this product.

A Brighter Idea
The FLIR CM85 amp meter delivers on the value of added safety with a built in Non-Contact Voltage Detector and a built-in worklight. The non-contact voltage detector allows you to quickly and conveniently check for voltage prior to attaching the clamp meter’s test leads to the device under test—all without reaching for a separate voltage pen.

This clamp meter also features a super-bright, dual-LED worklight that illuminates dark or poorly-lit work areas without the use of a flashlight. This built-in light frees up a hand, adds confidence when performing visual inspections (for wear, pitting, dirt, corrosion and dust) and makes it easier to read faded labels and other markings.

For peace of mind, FLIR backs up its durable clamp meters with a limited lifetime warranty.

Meter works great but

Meter fictions well, clamp is nice and big but I noticed the battery doesn't last a very long time if you are using the LED light and using the meter often. I was just recently at a service call and it was about an 8 hour service call doing various fixes, and the battery was dead by the end of the 8 hours. Mind you I did use the LED light often, but for 6 AAA batteries I would suggest getting rechargeables to be easier on the wallet if you use it often. Other then that everything works well.
