How to Use a Digital Clamp Meter?


Digital clamp meters are devices that are used to measure the field induced by the current flowing through a circuit. To use the device, first remove power from the circuit and isolate the wire carrying the current. Then, open the clamp, tie it around the wire and set the digital meter to read the current type. Finally, return the power to the circuit and read the display on the screen.
