FAQ: What is the input current protection of teh PA2201A?

The Internal current measurement paths are not fused. Current limit protection (fuse or breaker) and appropriate wire sizing should be provided by the user. Currents in excess of 140% of the rated rms currents may cause permanent damage to the current measurement shunts.

An internal protection mechanism is provided for the 2 A shunt to avoid damage due to mis-wiring, but it should not be relied upon in situations where higher than 2 Arms currents are expected.

Refer to the data sheet at www.keysight.com/find/PA2201A for up to date information.
