Purkeys’ Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter accurately measures low current and detects parasitic loads in electrical systems without disconnecting the circuit.

Parasitic draw on batteries can deplete a charged battery over a period of time, even when the vehicle is not in use. Batteries that remain discharged for long periods of time can receive internal damage and require replacing.

The Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter measures current through the magnetic field generated by the current flowing through the conductor by clipping the interlocking jaws around a wire.

This easy-to-use device enables accurate and efficient diagnosis of electrical systems and assists in reducing battery depletion and damage during downtime. The Milliamp Clip-On Ammeter is an essential fleet tool that is able to accurately measure very low current down to a milliamp.
