      Hello, i got my mooshimeter and its been fantastic for most uses. I
      am an auto mechanic and there are a lot of great uses for thew mooshimeter
      in my trade, however i did have a couple questions wondering what i can expect from mooshim engineering in the future.

      Will Current Clamp measurements for current be added anytime soon?
      In this trade a lot of current measurements are performed however its just not feasible to interrupt the circuit. I understand current clamp use is possible its just not fully integrated into the app yet in any way. This would be a major plus for this product if it were to be added in the future.

      Would using the mooshimeter as a scope be a possibility in the future?
      the sampling rate i understand can be an issue but the possibility is there. is this something mooshim engineering is looking into at all or what developments will we see next? a lot of people in my shop would love to get one it would just be easier to sell them on it or get them over the fence if we knew what to expect in the future.

      Thanks very much for an absolutely fantastic product and i look forward to supporting this company in any way possible going forward.

      Thanks Cesar! I try to answer your questions below:

      Will Current Clamp measurements for current be added anytime soon?

      Right now current clamps are supported, but automatic conversion of units within the app is not.

      Which port you want to plug in to depends on what kind of clamp you are using… I assume since you are working on automotive, you are using a DC current clamp with a voltage output. In this case, you can plug it in to either the voltage input (marked V) or the aux input (marked Ω, set the Mooshimeter to measure Aux Voltage DC). Since DC meters have a volts-to-amps conversion factor, you will need to do the conversion mentally for now.

      Here’s an example of me using a current clamp with an early version of the app and meter:

      Would using the mooshimeter as a scope be a possibility in the future?

      I’m always careful not to call the Mooshimeter an oscilloscope because it has 8000Hz max sample rate and no hardware triggering capability. Have you discovered the trend mode of the app, which gives you a graph over time? We’re working to improve the update rate of the graph and are aiming to release those in the next few weeks. So I think I can say the graphing ability will improve, but I don’t want to call it an oscilloscope :)

      Thank you, please let me know how else I can help! Happy metering!
