Product Overview

Klein Tools CL380 Electrical Tester is an automatically ranging true root mean squared (TRMS) digital clamp meter that measures AC/DC current via the clamp, AC/DC voltage, DC microamps, resistance, continuity, frequency, capacitance, and diodes via test leads, and temperature via a thermocouple probe. It includes a non-contact voltage tester integrated into the clamp, and features a high visibility, reverse contrast LCD display that optimizes viewability both in dark or bright ambient lighting.

This meter will measure the duty cycle of an AC waveform, not the on/off time of a motor, or compressor.

(What's this)
This clamp meter features probes for use directly on circuits as well as a clamp for inductively checking loads without making direct contact. It also features a thermocouple for checking temperatures in both Fahrenheit and Celsius. The screen is backlit and very easy to read. Auto ranging compensates for different ranges of voltage and current. Both AC and DC voltages and currents can be tested. Accuracy is very good. The included zippered storage pouch is a very nice touch, and keeps everything readily available.

(What's this)
Klein Tools CL 380 400A AC/DC Auto-Ranging True RMS Digital Clamp Meter measures AC/DC current via the clamp; AC/DC voltage, DC microamps, resistance, continuity, frequency, capacitance, and tests diodes via test leads; and temperature via a thermocouple probe. It has a reverse contrast LCD easily viewable in bright or dark settings. Powered by 3 AAA batteries that are included. Klein Tools website link for this tool: https://www.kleintools.com/catalog/clamp-meters/acdc-digital-clamp-meter-400a-auto-ranging I thought it would be pretty straight forward to use this meter to measure line amperages; just clamp it around any cord and take the reading. Not so! I ended up seeking assistance from my father who is a retired master electrician, and brother that is an electrical engineer. The instruction manual does not explain or clearly state that in order to correctly measure power cord amperage with the tool that it must be used with a line splitter: https://www.kleintools.com/catalog/test-measurement-accessories/line-splitter-10x Available at Home Depot: https://www.homedepot.com/s/line%2520splitter?NCNI-5 When measuring power cord amperage, only one wire should be measured, either the positive or neutral, not all three at one time as inside a cord – positive, negative, ground. This is due to the positive and neutral wires canceling each other out due to alternating current. I found some videos to assist with understanding this and seeing how measurements are taken correctly. I also include a video demonstrating the importance of this TRMS meter versus a RMS meter: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z-KfZvbjyBY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RFhG7l1YmBI While there are lots of videos available on other sites, it is disappointing that Klein does not have information or a video on their website demonstrating correct use of their clamp meters. However, here is one example of a video explaining and demonstrating the various functions of another model Klein TRMS clamp meter. While it is not the Klein CL380 the information still applies: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Mqd5qhjzkBI I question one bit of information provided in the instruction booklet: Under Calibration it states, “Accurate for one year.” Hmm, does this mean that the measurements provided by the instrument are not to be trusted after one year of use? I did not pursue an answer to this question with Klein. I intend to use the tool to check electrical connections and components during the build and testing of an electric paramotor drawing at peak over 300 Amps. Two year warranty from date of purchase. Made in China.

This works as well as you'd expect. I've only recently started using Klein tools, but have used quite a few recently, and I've been pretty impressed with the quality. This meter is easy to read and it's convenient to have something like this around that can read electrical signals without having to poke at live circuits. It's also got all the features of a regular multimeter as well as a thermometer function, which is nice.

Klein Tools, not much more to say except this CL 380 is an excellent tool for an electrician. The LCD display is easy to red in bright light. The ranges are really, really good. It’s the only one I have seen with a temperature gauge and it will register Celsius and Fahrenheit. Amperage, continuity (without current flowing). Nice case and batteries included.
