amperage amperage  /ˈæm pə rɪdʒ/


  • (n) the strength of an electrical current measured in amperes


  1. AP originally stood for Aluminum Pechiney, and it is numbered by the amperage of the cells.
  2. Low amperage of 1,000 volts destroys consciousness.
  3. The greater the number of electrons, the higher the amperage of the current.


  • AC Current Transducer monitors heating element controls.

    Without requiring external current transformer or shorting blocks, ATH Series monitors power controlled by phase-angled fired, burst fired, or time proportioned silicon-controlled rectifiers in heating applications. Time Integration functionality provides output signal directly proportional to RMS amperage. Installed via 2-screw panel mount or with optional DIN rail brackets, transducer is ...
