Milwaukee Electric Tool has expanded its lithium-ion system with the new M12 cordless clamp-gun clamp meter. Two models were designed with complete feature sets, specifically tailored to the electrician and HVACR technician. According to the manufacturer, the power of the lithium-ion batteries allows the device to include a large high-contrast white-on-black display and extra-bright LED floodlights to increase productivity. In addition, the clamp meters were designed with an ergonomic pistol grip. The improvement aims to increase comfort and ease of use in overhead applications by aligning the jaws and display to the user’s line of sight. The units also provide a wide 1.57-inch jaw opening to handle wire bundles, a thin jaw profile for access to tight spaces and embedded non-contact voltage detection.
