Digital Clamp meter basics

This page describes Digital Clamp meter basics. It mentions Meco digital clamp meter features. It also mentions benefits of digital clamp meter.

Definition: The device used to measure current/voltage by clamping its jaws around the conductor is known as clamp meter. The clamp meters are of two types viz. analog and digital. Analog type has pointer indicator while digital type has numeric display.

AC measurement is done using coupling effect similar to transformer while DC measurement is done using hall effect sensors.
