    Hello,

    Is it possible to log a DC current with a current clamp using the mooshimeter? In a range to 2A.
    If yes, what do I need for this?

    I’ve ordered this one: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/HP-770HC-HP-605A-1000V-600A-Digital-Multimeter-Clamp-Meter-Multimetro-True-RMS-NCV-Feature-Temperature/32881242328.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.10854c4dZAp0J1
    I will report here if it’s any good.
    Did you mean 200A? Because you can measure 2A just fine with the Mooshimeter directly.

    CutterSlade, I’m not sure, but that clamp might have automatic shutdown. That would kill any hopes about longer logging sessions.

    You could use aux-channel to measure voltage drop over some cabling etc that is already there on your setup and calculate current from it, if it is somehow too hard to use regular current measurement through mooshimeter (up to ~10 amps).

    It’s nice to handle mostly AC-stuff, so current is easily measured by current clamps that you could get for couple dollars/euros.. I’m still keeping my eyes open for compatible DC-clamp though, just not planning to pay very much for one.
