Fork meters are similar to clamp meters because they can measure alternating current and voltage. Because these instruments use forks and feature LEDs, these devices work well in confined, dimly lit locations where opening a standard clamp meter's jaws is a hassle. A fork meter's design allows the operator to slide the forks around a conductor with little effort.
Ferrite iron forks under the plastic molding can detect, concentrate and measure the magnetic fields generated by a current as it flows through a wire's conductors. Many electricians prefer fork meters because they eliminate twisting or repositioning wires for clamping.
Fork meters offer convenience and ease of use, making them popular with contractors, electricians, industrial maintenance technicians and other service professionals. They're safer than other instruments because they require no direct circuit connection, so do-it-yourselfers can also use them.
Fork meters are particularly helpful when working with technology that offers little space for you to work in. Add them to your toolbox before repairing industrial equipment and controls, commercial and industrial HVAC units and electrical systems.
Accurate current and voltage measurements are critical for verifying that an electrical system is performing correctly and identifying and troubleshooting any issues. This requirement makes fork meters essential for electrical work. Construction Fasteners and Tools carries two fork meter models from Milwaukee® to meet all your current and voltage measuring needs.
Both packages include the meter, one test lead set, two AA batteries and a user manual. Milwaukee® covers both products with a comprehensive five-year warranty.
