A milliamp clamp-meter can measure small electrical currents by simply clamping over a wire. This is especially useful in measuring the small pulses created by decoder activity on 2-wire irrigation circuits without undoing wire splices. Clamp-meters don’t have to be inserted in an electrical circuit to measure current, while conventional meters do.
