AC-DC Current Measurements AC/DC AMPERAGE MEASUREMENTS By default, DC amperage measurements are enabled. To enable AC amperage measurements, press the blue button. Milliamp and Amperage measurements are commonly performed on automobiles, these measurements are very valuable because they are taken in a live circuit and can lead to accurate diagnosis. The current in a circuit is inversely proportional to the circuit's resistance. Think of an amperage reading as a live resistance reading. To measure amperage you must place the selector switch in the mA A position as shown above.

The meter's leads must be positioned as shown above to measure DC Amps or AC Amps. The meter can safely measure up to 10 Amps in this position; however, the meter is actually protected with a 15 Amp fuse at this input terminal which can handle 10A continuously and 20A for 30 seconds.
