    I don't actually need ua that often. On PMs I usually just clean the sensor and call it great.

    I usually only check uA on cooking equipment.

    I will on other stuff once in a while.

    Some of the hot side stuff, you're adjusting air shutters and what not. Checking uA is sometimes the best way to dial things in.

    Fluke doesnt make a good all in one. I carry a 116/323 combo. Thinking about swapping the 323 for a 324 or 902, because its pretty useless except for when u need an amp clamp.

    Have had good luck with Field piece over the last 2 decades. Thought I bought a dud when the meter was reading mega ohms. Made me condemn a couple of good compressors. Till I noticed I was getting a reading when my fingers touched the probes. Don't care much for the auto ranging for that fact. Noticed as I get older. The screens seem to get harder to see the range icons.
