I am going to be installing audio and alarms.
I know there is no "one size fits all" just looking for some advice.


I was looking at the 337 Clamp Meter and from what I've read:

Clamp = measures amps
Test Leads = resistance, continuity, voltage

So basically does everything I need besides testing diodes.

My question is for anyone that owns the 337.
Do you use this meter in place of a DMM like the Fluke 87? Or do you find yourself grabbing your DMM for most applications, and using the 337 for clamping only.

I know I could also just buy a 87 and then buy the i410 and i1010 for clamping purposes..

Any input is greatly appreciated.

I've used my 337 in place of my DMM several times. Hell, the only time I grab a DMM is if I'm clamping an amp for power... The 337 is my go to meter. Well worth the money I spent on it.

I'll use my 337 for normal DMM tasks if my fluke 115 isn't within close reach.

But mainly I'll only use it to measure current draw or for clamping my amps.

nice just looked up the 115. If I bought a DMM that would probably be the one I would go with.

What else can the Clamp part of the 337 used for?
