    A clamp meter is an electrical test tool that combines a basic digital multimeter with a current sensor. Clamps measure current. Probes measure voltage. Having a hinged jaw integrated into an electrical meter allows technicians to clamp the jaws around a wire, cable or another conductor at any point in an electrical system, then measure current in that circuit without disconnecting/de-energizing it.
