Amprobe ACD-23SW True-rms Swivel™ Clamp Meter with Temperature and VolTect™
Great that has a swivel clamp, but where is the hold buttom for maximum and minimum amp reading??
The meter has great features, and is a great meter for every day use, what it locks and is a big NO,NO, is that this great meter does not have the function to read minimum and maximum amperage, you have to keep looking at the display to guess what was the maximum reading amperage at start any compressor or motor. I rather have this feature, max. and minimum amperage on the meter, than the temperature probe.
Once Amprobe adds this feature to the meter, it will be a 10 start clamp meter.

This meter is excellent for everyday service and retro-commissioning work
Amprobe ACD-23SW Swivel Clamp Meter
I have been wanting this type of amp clamp meter for years and AMPROBE has finally developed it. I have worked in the HVAC / Electrical trade for almost 30 years, as a field technician, and using electrical meters is required in my daily job duties. I am a HVAC / Electrical Service Instructor, at the Union, so buying and using digital multimeters is a very important part of my career and job. My electrical meters get used & tested by myself and my field service mechanics every day.
The test leads have alligator type attachments that you can screw on for troubleshooting.
I found this meter priced reasonable.
The K-Type thermocouple plug on the from of the meter is a great design and easy to access.
We found that this meter is easy to use one handed with the selection switch and hold button placed in a handy location.
The 180-degree rotating head is great in tight troubleshooting locations.
The selection dial is easy to read with clear selection points.
Display light lights up the entire LCD display.
This true RMS model will handle all of my HVAC needs in the field.
I found the display easy to understand and read in tight locations.
I really like the non-contact voltage detection internal to the clamp jaws.
I wanted a work light below the clamp jaws for using it in dark locations.
The LCD display light only stays on for 60 seconds.
The case the meter came with should be heavier material and more water resistant material to protect the meter from rain and weather.

This clamp is well made and works well. The only thing is the pouch that comes with it is not strong enough to handle normal day fieldwork usage.

cant find a better tool
If your in the trade then you'll know quality and this my friends is the cream of the crop. I have been in the trenches and i have been to the summit. As far as a meter having all the beels and whistles this baby has everything all in one. The name speaks for it self,but the tool does anything and everything with just the one tool. Great tool as you would expect from this type of product it is a great buy.

This AMPROBE is AWESOME!! I do agreat deal of Refrigeration and HVAC work and this multi-functioning tool is GREAT!! I had a Fluke before and and it just doesn't stand up to my new AMPROBE--like I said-I HAD a FLUKE-gave it away after using my new AMPROBE and being hands free is an added plus-its my 3rd hand when I am in tight places. The only way I will replace my ACD-23SW is by having another AMPROBE of greater functions and "moverability"!!!Thanks AMPROBE-keep up the great work!!

The swivel feature is really handy for tight spaces
This is a very versatile tool that belongs in any electricians or HVAC repairman's tool kit. The swivel feature is really handy for tight spaces allowing you to see the readout.
