The CL2000 true-RMS clamp meter is a professional grade, quality-built test instrument equipped with practical features that reflect the thoughtful and safety-conscious engineering behind its design.
Many if not most advertised clamp meters measure (with the clamp) AC current only, not DC current. DC current measurement with the clamp makes the CL2000 useful in troubleshooting DC electrical systems found in automobiles and various battery backup solutions. With the clamp, I can easily measure ignition-off drain on my car battery without needing to disconnect the battery cable, for example.
Design features like the no-probe voltage detector, display backlight, worklight, rear magnetic mount and lead storage, accessory probe clip on fixed jaw -- along with the common digital multimeter test functions of voltage, resistance, capacitance, continuity and diode check -- put the CL2000 in a class by itself in safety and versatility.
For the one hundred thirty-five dollars I paid for my CL2000, I really cannot ask for a better Category III-600V rated, UL-listed test instrument. This meter is simply worth the investment.
