    Default Cruizer

    Hey Jeff I was just wondering what kind of meter your using to measure hz. I have a clamp on Greenlee 950 (if that helps any). I can only get a hertz reading if I clamp the meter around one wire on a cord I rigged up and plug in my rod oven. I tried plugging the leads into the outlets but don't get a reading that makes sense.

    Nope doesn't make sense, Stick the probes into a receptacle, What your wanting is AC frequency.

    I have an Ideal meter that reads Hz, but it goes crazy on a generator that isn't loaded.
    So, I put a cord on a panel mount Freq meter and just plug it in.

    My poor mans frequency meter method is to use my Kill-a-watt meter.

    Drawback is that it only good for 120 VAC.
    Thermal Arc GTSW400, Airco Heliwelder II, Miller Dynasty 350, Hypertherm 1000, oxy-fuel setup, metal cutting bandsaw, air compressor, drill press, etc.:
