Hantek CC-65 and CC-650 Current Clamps – Unboxing and First Look!

Hantek CC-65 and CC-650 Current Clamps – Unboxing and First Look!

I took the leap and ordered two current clamps to be used with my Rigol DS1052Z!
Current clamps are inductive sensing devices that produce a voltage (V) when they sense the magnetic field generated by a current moving through a wire.
The CC-65 and CC-650 are great budget clamps and we will see if they suit my needs!
This is not a sponsored video, all of the equipment (to date) has been bought by me and are intended to be used by me.

Thanks for watching!

    I can’t find a review video from u. Does that mean u didn’t find them very useful?

    do some ac inrush test

    I use mine in automotive work primarily, I really wish the cables was at least 2 meters long

    I wish I would have done the motor draw test! I thinking about doing one with a bad armature loop or some nail polish on one of the bars!

    Here I go thinking I found something unique on Banggood and you did a video about it 3 years ago.

    So do I set my monitor to 10x or 1x?

  7. Junk From Work on May 29, 2022 at 8:38 pm

    I definitely think we kinda going the same results bit of a pain to zero but pretty good!!

    your videos are always a helping hand !

    would this show a sinewave if its AC amps ? or it will be always a line

  10. Jakob on May 29, 2022 at 8:55 pm

    Whats your thought here down the line..they are around the same price..are the noisefloor way higher on the 650 vs the65 or are they around the same so it would make sense to go for 650 model, ..any noticeable drawback on the 650 in regards to 65 model? Thx for vid..+

    Hi, those can be plugged up in any oscilloscope?

  12. Andrei von Hermannstadt on May 29, 2022 at 9:06 pm

    So many wrong things in this video:

    1.why not zero the Probe after u put it on the wire with supply off?

    2.why not set the scope to 10x ?

    3. You can change the scope from showing mV to mA

    thank you for posting and your comments, it helped me choose the most appropriate probe.

    Hantek sells enough that they probably don’t give much away…. just a thought as I have Hantek stuff as well.

    IN my testing the Hantek CC65 is the best budget current clamp on the market.
    went bananas in these Ac/DC current clamps and spend a tad over 120bucks and got all the cheapest CN versions I could find some years back as a way to learn.
    got 4 different models for my 4ch Micisig STO scope.
    # Hantek CC65 (20Khz) 40USD
    # ETCR007 (100Khz) 47USD
    # Allsun EM264 (?Khz) 26USD
    # HoldPeak 605 (?Khz) 14USD
    all AC / DC valid.
    Your video above, was actually the reason why I went for the little brother CC65 and not the CC650 that was like 15USD more, as it seemed the smaller CC65 had way less noise.
    the most expensive ETCR007 (100Khz) at a tad under 50 bucks, was a letdown and has way more noise than the Hantek IMO.
