Manufacturer Description

The Plugable USBC-VAMETER is a portable USB-C multi-meter that was designed to measure voltage and amperage (charge rate) for USB-C devices.

Introduction

Plugable is already well known for our advanced USBC-TKEY USB 3.1 Type-C (USB-C) Power Delivery Sniffer based on Google's open source "Twinkie" design, but for many users it provides far more functionality than required and is more complex to setup (requiring a Linux computer). For most users a simple stand-alone, plug and play, on-the-go solution is required and the USBC-VAMETER is the perfect solution with its ability to display USB-C voltage, amperage, and current flow direction in real time.

Common uses

-Connecting between a USB-C host system like a laptop, tablet, or cell phone and a charger to monitor charge information.
-Connecting between a USB-C host and docking station to monitor charge information.
-Connecting between a USB-C host system and a USB-C bus powered accessory like an external hard drive, flash drive, etc to measure power draw of a device.
-Testing for USB-C port spec compliance such as a VBUS hot condition, voltage drop under load, etc. This meter is not meant to replace professional USB-C testing equipment, it is designed for quick and easy measurements for users at any skill level.

Compatibility

We designed this meter to act as a transparent interposer which means it should not interfere with the USB data (1.1 through 3.1 Gen 2), USB-C Alternate Mode video, or USB-C charging. Can be used inline with USB-C docking stations, chargers, USB-C accessories. The meter is able to achieve this without interfering with normal USB-C operation as it only taps into the power (VBUS) and ground connections to measure their values and leaves all of the data lines untouched.

Product Features

Allows quick and easy monitoring of USB-C power and charging. Measures voltage and amperage as well as what direction the electrical current is flowing through it. Features bright and easy to read OLED screen Meter is bidirectional and can be connected in any direction. Supports the full range of USB-C Power Delivery voltage from 5 to 20V (4-20V, 50mA-10A operating range) The meter passes through all USB data (1.1 through 3.1 Gen 2), USB-C Alternate Mode video, and USB-C charging without interfering with normal USB-C operation. Can be used inline with USB-C docking stations, chargers, USB-C accessories, etc The compact aluminum design makes this the perfect companion for diagnosing and monitoring USB-C devices on the go with no extra equipment required We love our Plugable products and hope you will too. All of our products are backed with a 1-year limited parts and labor warranty and Seattle-based email support.
