  • Clamp meters for HVAC

    I have recently purchased a clamp meter which is Ideal 702.(It is my fiirst clamp meter in my life). It is ok but I realized that this meter does not have amp DC function.

    I am a entry level gas techician and plumber so I do not have much technical work.

    For hvac tech. what kind of clamp meter and functions are required?

    Thanks.

    Ive been using my Fieldpiece SC66 for 10 years. It does everything you will need including temperature. I use a Fluke 80pk-8 Type K thermocouple pipe clamp for checking superheat and subcooling. Sometime in the next couple years I will upgrade to the SC76 which is autoranging.

      I use the same thing.
      Buy cheap, buy twice.

        How about TPI-270?
        Have you ever use this one?

        My coworker just bought one.

        Thanks.

          For a the best HVAC meter go with a Fluke 116.

          I use a simple amp clamp as a seperate tool

          It will do everything you need and is less than $175
