An ammeter is a measuring instrument used to measure the electric current in a circuit. Electric currents are measured in amperes (A), hence the name. Instruments used to measure smaller currents, in the milliampere or microampere range, are designated as milliammeters or microammeters. Early ammeters were laboratory instruments which relied on th

A moving-coil milliammeter. This consists of a rectangular coil wound on an aluminum former (1) mounted so that it can rotate between the poles of a permanent magnet (2). A soft iron core (3) ensures that a uniform radial magnetic field acts on the coil. When a current flows in the coil it experienc...

Instrument that measures electric current (flow of charge per unit time), usually in amperes, through a conductor. It should not be confused with a voltmeter, which measures potential difference between two points in a circuit. The ammeter is placed in series (see series circuit) with the component through which current is to be measured, and is co

The ammeter is the part of a clamp meter that measures the current through a conductor. Analog ammeters use the current to move a needle on a gauge that is set to display the amperage of the current. Digital ammeters convert the analog amperage into digital signals that activate an LED display

An instrument that indicates whether the battery is being charged adequately by the alternator. If the ammeter indicates discharge, the alternator is not producing enough power to keep the battery charged with the current demand. If it indicated a charge, then the battery is being charged by the alternator. It should normally be close to zero.
