This multifunction clamp meter is designed for current measurement in electrical testing, and combines a digital multimeter with a clamping current sensor. The nature of the clamp means that it can fit around a wire at any point to sense current, voltage, continuity, frequency and more. This has the advantage of allowing electricians to take a reading from a wire without touching it, which is both more convenient and safer than other methods.

They are used for measuring high levels of current in service and maintenance applications. They are also used when installing electrical equipment.


RS PRO aims to be your go-to brand when you need reliability, quality, and affordability. We source high-quality tools and parts from trusted sources and employ expert testing to build a brand you can rely on.

When it comes to test and measurement equipment, RS PRO has an extensive range of solutions. From electrical to environmental measurement, we offer calibrated and multi-function instruments to suit your needs.
