    There is much more to come to this section in the future, it is currently being redesigned.

    When working on that do it yourself home improvement wiring project a good meter is essential for getting the job done right and finding any problems that may pop up. Every homeowner should have one to check problems that come with home ownership. To insure that you get correct readings you should purchase a quality meter and not a piece of junk that may fail and not give the correct reading.

    Recommended Electrical Meters & Testers.

    Fluke 117 Electricians Multimeter with VoltAlertâ„¢
    AutoVolt feature for automatic AC/DC voltage selection Large display & white LED backlight allow efficient work in poorly lit areas True RMS for accurate measurements on non-linear loads Min/Max/Average to record signal fluctuations Compatible with optional magnetic hanger (ToolPak) for hands-free operation Current measurement 20A (30 sec. Momentary, 10A continuous) TL75 Hard Pont Test Lead Set; Resistance, Continuity & Diode Testing CAT III 600 volt safety rated LoZ: low input impedance prevents false readings due to ghost voltage

    Fluke 337 Clamp Meter
    Top-of-the-line True RMS clamp meter measures AC/DC current to 999.9A and voltage to 600V, ohms, motor start-up current, frequency, min/max, capability and large backlit display. Small body and jaws fit into tight places. Display hold button keeps measurements on the display. Auto shut-off maximizes battery life.

    Digital Clamp-On Ammeter
    Digital clamp-on ammeter. Measures AC current up to 800 amps with 3 percent (ACA) accuracy without breaking the circuit. Also measures AC/DC voltage, resistance, frequency, capacitance, continuity and diode. Peak hold and data hold for measuring "in rush" current. Display is a backlit, extra large 4000 count LCD screen. Also includes belt holster, molded rubber holster, test leads and K-type thermocouple. Category III - 600 volt.

    Professional True RMS AC/DC Clamp Ammeter
    Clamp meter measures up to 1000 amps AC/DC. Features built-in non-contact infrared thermometer with laser pointer. 8 to 1 distance to spot ratio. Measures up to 518 F (270 C). Min/Max/Peak 1.0% accuracy. Uses 9V battery, not included. Includes test leads and belt holster.

    Autoranging Digital Clamp Meter (GCM-221)
    Measures AC current up to 600A and AC voltage up to 600V Measures resistance and continuity Autoranging feature selects proper range for function For conductors up to 1" diameter Data hold feature retains values 2 AAA batteries included

    Fluke Volt Tester
    An easy to use AC voltage tester for the home owner to the electrician. This can detect voltage from 90V AC to 600V AC without the use of metal contacts. It will quickly test for energized circuits and defective grounds. It is perfect for figuring out why those holiday lights won't work. When it glows you know there's power in the line.

    Circuit Breaker Finder
    3-way tester - circuit breaker finder, circuit tester and GFCI receptacle tester. Variable sensitivity adjustment. Two housings attach for convenient storage. Includes required 9V battery
