Do I need a new Fluke clamp meter?

    My experience is that there are true RMS clamp meters that measure current
    via max/peak method and newer meters that use the in-rush method (ie, Fluke
    330 series).

    Accurate measurement of in-rush current has alway been possible since the
    advent of true RMS meters with Max feature. Fluke is now touting the
    triggered 100mS inrush measurement feature as the new "must-have" thing.

    How much more useful than a good true RMS clamp meter with max/hold is a
    triggered 100mS meter? For measurement of synchronous motor currents (with
    and without adjustable speed drives (ASDs)), is a trigger or a fast
    measurement really necessary? Helpful? A waste?

    What do you think?

    Is there something you need to do that the meter you already have is not
    adequate for? If what you have works, then there's no reason to upgrade.

    That's the "Doctor Strangelove" mentality. ;-)

    Read Fluke application note 1629920 and work it out.
