Similarly to hwat we have done with our multimeter range, we have critically reviewed the clamp meter market we have selected the best and most functional clmap meters for you to choose from. We have eliminated low quality meters, those with lesser built in safeguards, and poor quality manufacturers.
With this research done, and the results below, we hope to save you many hours of effort and help you buy your next meter with more features, and get much better value for money.
Key selection criteria and rationale:
- Safety – paramount criteria. Only quality and reputable devices are included here, lesser quality items, regardless of feature set, have been eliminated.
- Functionality – A superior feature set is ideal. In many cases one device incorporating key functions from what would normally be found in multiple devices may cater to your needs better. Sometimes some of these extra functions may not be used at first, but there may be a time when one or more extra functions are relied upon and fully appreciated.
- Cheap vs Value – With points 1 and 2 in mind, expect to pay more for quality, inbuilt safety features, and highly functional devices: but also expect high value return on investment from these devices.
- Independent reviews – highly important, especially when buying over the internet. We have linked each device to review or demosntrations by respected internet reviewers and demosntrators, to assist you make your purchasing decisions.
