    Clamp comparison: Fluke vs. Craftsman professional

    A while back there was a discussion about the differences between clamp meters.

    Since I have a Fluke 337 and a craftsman professional "true rms" meter, I decided to do a comparison.

    Here's a vid showing the differences:


    Bottom line: you get what you pay for.

    Note the HUGE difference in peak hold numbers at the end.

    Fluke: 102x43.9= 4477 watts

    Craftsman: 102x61.6= 6283 watts

    Massive difference. As much as I'd like to believe the craftsmans numbers, I know they aren't right.

    Very interesting review.

    Make sure yours isnt one of the recalled meters if you bought it used:

    33X Recall

    Thanks for the heads up on that.

    Mine doesn't fall in that range luckily.
