What are you looking to spend? Do you want TRMS? What CAT rating is required where you will be testing?Dmansee12 said:Maybe one of these? http://products.kleintools.com/Test%20&%20Measurement/Clamp%20Meters/index.html My current one is to picky and gave me to much trouble ringing out today.
Lol. Side job meterStaticFilter said:My on the job meter is a Klein CL2000, I love it and would buy another if anything happened to it. My side job meter is an ideal "tight sight" it's nice, it was free, no complaints. My garage meter is an old fluke.
I have this same meter. It may be a little pricey for some folks, but it's so damn handy. I was working with a guy the other day and we were getting a current draw on a motor and he asked how much it was pulling. I just pulled the screen off and handed it to him. He looked at me like I was from another planet. Funny thing is he made fun of it as we went in the plant and then telling me how cool it was when we got out. Bottom line, for the features it's well worth the money. It minimizes time that you're in front of exposed conductors. That's worth its weight in gold to me.I have to say I am very happy with my 381 if you are looking for something other than the Kleins. You won't regret it.
I flip a battery over inside the screen before I put it in my bag. No problems so far, it's been about a year now.Do the Fluke 381's still have problems with the batteries going dead when the meter is off. I have one at work batteries seem always to be dead. I use my 337 more than than the 381. LC
Extech is junk. Far from "solid".I have a Fluke 233 with a wireless display, which comes in handy, with i410 clamp attachment it is extremely safe, capable of a few things most multimeter are unable to do.
Fluke has got the repuatation of making a great multimeter, Klein's I find alright, usually being over priced from the range and functions. Have you given any thought to extech series? They are extremely solid.
