    You are absolutely right. When you make a decision based on an incorrect reading you risk the chance of burning someone's house or business down. I have a Fluke 87V with an I410 clamp probe I like awfully well but it's big and heavy. I also have a Fieldpiece SC53 clamp meter that seems to be about as accurate as the Fluke but is much lighter and smaller. I guess they all have their place.

    I noticed that more than one of the suggestions here are NOT True RMS. How often does that present a problem for anyone?

    I am just trying to always keep in mind the reality of HVAC/R Technicians as opposed to things that are occasionally marketing driven or bleed over in tools originally designed for other fields.

    What doesnt it do? I would say best all-n-1 meter on the market. The thermocouple is a little brittle though, but never needed calibrating. Although you can calibrate it if need be.

    I have had a few meters since 1964. I like the UEI the best.

    What does any one know about the Fieldpiece ACDC6. Can it be used with the HG3?
    I understand they are making some good amp clamps. But still have bugs.

    For power measurements I'd say why not go with a Fluke 902 and go home healthy and happy each day. I'm not going to get going on the other brands , but really ?

    I have the Fluke 902 on my service bag and the 322 on my pm bag. Also have a 80i clamp I can attach to a multimeter.

    Fluke 902 is the best meter I've ever owned. Cost me two bills though.

    I don't think any clamp meter gets a high ohm range. That's why I have the 179 and 87 for.
