Ampere Meter 10A AC 72mm Square designed explicitly to measure the magnitudes of the current in a circuit. One of the most common tools used by an electronics professional is the ampere metre. This Analog Ammeter has a 0A to 10A measurement range. The ammeter is normally wired in series with the circuit that will be used to measure the current. An ammeter typically has a low resistance to avoid causing a considerable voltage drop in the circuit being monitored.
While Measuring the current in the smaller range in the milliampere or microampere range, are designated as milliammeters or microammeters. An ampere meter is represented by the letter ‘A’ in a circuit. The ammeter operates based on the principle of low resistance and inductive reactance. Ammeter offers a very low impedance as the voltage drop across the ammeter should be below. Moreover, connecting an ammeter in parallel may result in a short circuit and the current passing through the ammeter might burn the instrument. For an ideal ammeter, the impedance must be zero so that the voltage drop across the instrument is zero
