Does anyone know if there are any clamp-on current meters that do not need to have the conductors split. One that can clamp over an entire cable and give current readings.
I don't this that it would be possible as the current flowing in the neutral would be flowing in the opposite direction as the hot and thus the magnetic fields from the two conductors would be going in opposite directions canceling each other out. But there are some very amazing equipment out there and I am just wondering if some manufacture came up with a way to clamp over the whole cable.
