Purpose and Scope

Clamp-on amp meters (better known as clamp-on ammeters) measure electric conductors of electricity with a sensor in-between the jaws of the clamp. In some applications, electricians pass the test material through the probe (the space between the clamp jaws) without clamping the jaw onto the test material. When measuring voltage, for example, the clamp's jaw isn't attached to anything. Clamp-on amp meters are used in a number of applications by electricians, engineers and technicians. Some common uses for clamp sensors include: power plant maintenance and inspection; home electrical system maintenance/repair; and industrial manufacturing applications.

Where Measurements Come From

The clamp-on amp meter is clipped to a wire within a circuit. The electrical current running through the wire generates an electromagnetic field around the wire. An amp meter reads the strength of the electromagnetic field via a sensor housed in the jaws of the clamp. The greater the electromagnetic field around the wire, the greater the current reading.

Using the Clamp

To take a measurement with a clamp-on meter, close your hand around the clamp lever. Place the electrically conductive test material between the jaws. Carefully, release the clamp lever to close the jaws of the clamp sensor around the electrically conductive test material.
