Amp Clamp Meter

  1. Prior to site visit, determine how many amps the solar panel can push
  2. At site, set dial to 40 amps
  3. Toggle button mode to DC
  4. Clamp around black wire (in DC circuits, black is “hot”) and center vertically
  5. Press DC zero button
  6. If taken in full sun, reading should be at or near panel capacity (Ron, are there any hard numbers we could put in here?)
  7. Make sure to return dial to off position
