    Amp Probe

    What fluke product is a stand alone amp probe ONLY? I only want it to be for measuring amperage. I don't want it to measure voltage or anything else. I had one in the past where i could choose the amp range either from 200, 600, or 1000 i believe and that was all the tool did.

    Thanks

    Here is a list of their clamp meters. The only one I didnt see was the i1010 (you need to plug it into your multimeter) and its the one I use

    Thanks, I was looking at their list but didn't see my previous amp probe which disappeared some how. Maybe someone know what i'm talking about? I have the amp probe i plug into my 87 but some time i need to take voltage readings and amp draw the same time so it doesn't work for me.

    this is a good idea, i carry a fluke 902 and an 87-5 in my bag, i used to do the whole amp clamp plugged into the meter, but i would constantly be unplugging the leads. Just pick up a fluke 322 or a UEI phoenix meter, both nice instruments.....
    I dont install leaks, i just fix em

    I too have had several nice amp meters. I carry quite a few meters in my arsenal bag, Fluke 87-5/E2-KIT, i1010, T5-1000, Amprobe ACD-14 TRMS-FX
    and the most used amp monitor is my trusty black clamp on Amprobe thats analog.

    You definately work faster with a few meters in your bag, sometimes you need more than one.
