Purkey’s introduces milliamp clip-on ammeter

Purkey’s highlights its milliamp clip-on ammeter, which helps detect the existence of a parasitic load by accurately measuring low current in electrical systems without disconnecting any cords from the power source, helping fleets deal with the growing issue of batteries that are drained even when not in use.

According to the company, technicians equipped with Purkeys’ milliamp ammeter don’t need to break the circuit to measure current. This ammeter precisely measures the magnetic field generated by current flowing through the conductor by clamping its interlocking jaws around a wire.

The clip-on ammeter allows for accurate and efficient diagnosis of electrical systems and is able to accurately measure low current down to a milliamp, the company says.
