INTRODUCTION
Thank you for purchasing the HHM380 80 Amp AC/DC Clamp Meter with NCV Detector. Please read this
user’s manual carefully and horoughly before using the instrument.
The HHM380 is a 4000 count (3-3/4 digit) clamp meter with three attributes that make it particularly
suitable for automotive and factory MRO applications. The first two are 0.1mV and 1mA resolutions on its
narrowest AC/DC voltage and current measurement ranges. These premium specs enable troubleshooters
to quickly isolate short and open circuits within wiring bundles and check the performance of process
control system elements—such as 4-20mA current loops and 0-10V instrumentation outputs, panel
instruments, motors, motor drives, relays and solenoids—without having to cut any wiring. The third
attribute is a feature: a clamp jaw sized to tightly enclose a standard battery cable.
The HHM380, which meets the ETL CAT III 600V safety standard, also sports many features and
specifications typically found only on more-expensive clamp meters. They include a Non-Contact Voltage
(NCV) detector, ±1% or better measurement accuracy on all AC and DC voltage ranges, and the ability to
measure surface temperature using any “K” type thermocouple.

SAFETY INSTRUCTIONS
Warning
To avoid possible electric shock or personal injury, and to avoid damaging the meter or the equipment
under test:
• Before using the meter, inspect the case. Do not use the meter if it is damaged. Look for cracks or
missing plastic. Pay particular attention to the insulation around the connectors.
• WARNING Inspect the test leads for damaged insulation or exposed metal. Check the test leads for
continuity. Replace damaged test leads before using the meter.
• Verify the meter’s operation by measuring a known voltage. Do not use the meter if it operates
abnormally. Protection may be impaired. When in doubt, have the meter serviced.
• WARNING Do not apply more than the rated voltage, as marked on the meter, between the terminals
or between any terminal and ground.
5
WARNING Do not measure voltage with the rotary function switch pointing to the resistance (ohms),
current, capacitance or temperature positions. Never measure current with the switch pointing to the
resistance (ohms), capacitance or temperature positions.
• Use caution when working with voltages above 42VACRMS, or 60VDC. These voltages pose a shock
hazard.
• Use the proper terminals, function, and range for all measurements.
• WARNING Do not operate the meter around explosive gas, vapor, or dust.
• WARNING When using the probes, keep your fingers behind the finger guards. Do not touch the metal
probes of the test leads when making a measurement.
• When making connections, connect the black (–) test lead before connecting the red (+) test lead; when
disconnecting, disconnect the red (+) test lead before disconnecting the black (–) test lead.
• Disconnect circuit power and discharge all high-voltage capacitors before measuring/testing resistance,
continuity, diodes, or capacitance.
• For all DC functions in both auto and manual ranging mode, to avoid the risk of shock due to possible
improper reading verify the presence of any AC voltages by first using the AC function. Then select a DC
voltage range equal to or greater than the AC range
• Before measuring current, turn off power to the circuit before connecting the meter.
• Use only three “AAA” batteries, properly installed in the battery compartment, to power the meter. Do
not use rechargeable batteries.
• Replace the batteries as soon as the low battery indicator
appears. Operated with weak batteries,
the meter might produce false readings that could lead to electric shock and personal injury.
• Remove the test leads from the meter before opening the meter case or battery compartment.

SETUP INSTRUCTIONS
INSTALL BATTERIES
The battery compartment of the HHM380 is located at the back of the meter.
To open the compartment, use a small Phillips-head screwdriver to remove the single screw securing the
battery compartment cover. Be careful not to lose the small screw. Put the screw and the cover to the side.
Install the three supplied “AAA” batteries in the battery compartment. Use the polarity marks stencile
inside the compartment as a guide.
Replace the battery compartment cover and secure it with the Phillips-head screw.
OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS
The HHM380 provides several functions that can be applied to measurements and displays of multiple
parameters.
Ranging Options. By default, the meter automatically chooses the measurement range that maximizes
the resolution of its voltage, resistance and capacitance measurements. The term AUTO—in reverse type
on the top line of the LCD—indicates operation in Auto Ranging mode.
To switch to Manual Ranging mode for voltage, resistance and capacitance measurement, press the
RANGE button once. This will make AUTO disappear and cause the meter to enter the narrowest full-scale
range available for that parameter (see the Specifications section on pages 13 through 15 for a list of the
ranges available for all parameters).
Once the meter is in manual ranging mode, each subsequent press of the RANGE button widens the fullscale range by an order of magnitude (a factor of 10). For example, pressing the RANGE button with the
meter operating in the 0 to 400µF full-scale manual range widens the full-scale range to 0 to 40µF
(improving measurement resolution in the process). The next press of the button further widens the range
to 0 to 4µF. When the widest full-scale range has been reached, the next press of the RANGE button
switches back to the narrowest range. Pressing and holding the RANGE button with the meter operating
in Manual Ranging mode resumes operation in Auto Ranging mode.
7
Holding readings. Pressing the
button “freezes” the value on the display and causes a reverse-type
“H” ( ) to appear on the LCD. Pressing the
button again releases the hold and removes the .
Making Relative Measurements. Pressing the
button during measurement of a current, voltage
resistance or capacitance freezes the value measured and displayed at that moment on the LCD. The term
ZERO appears at the upper right of the LCD to indicate operation in this special mode. In REL mode, the
readout indicates the difference (Delta) between ongoing measurements and the frozen value. REL mode
is useful for tracking changes in dynamic processes or deviations from baseline readings.
When the
button is pressed, the meter automatically exits Auto Ranging mode and enters Manual
Ranging mode using the full-scale range in effect at that moment.
To exit REL mode and resume operation in “normal” display mode, press the
button again. This will
cause ZERO to disappear and resume measurement of the selected parameter in Auto Ranging mode.
Disabling Auto Power Off (APO). By default, the meter automatically powers itself off if no front-panel
button is pressed within any span of 15 minutes. As a convenience, the meter will sound five beeps one
minute before the APO function is set to activate. When the meter powers off, it will sound one long beep.
Once the APO function has powered the meter off, you cannot “wake up” the meter simply by turning the
rotary function switch to a different position. You must either rotate the switch to the OFF position and
then to another position, or press a button—any button.
To disable the APO function, you must power on the meter in a special way—by pressing and holding
the SEL button while turning the rotary function switch to a position other than OFF. Doing so will cause
the term oFF to appear on the LCD until you release the SEL button.
Once the meter powers on, there is no indication that the APO function is disabled. So if you forget that
you have disabled APO and leave the meter unattended, it will remain powered on until its batteries
discharge (typically, several days later).
Turning On the Backlight and Work Light
Pressing and holding the
button for at least 2 seconds turns on the LCD’s backlight and white LED
work light for 15 seconds, making troubleshooting easier and measurements easier to read in dark
spaces.
You can extinguish the backlight and work light before the end of the 15-second period by pressing and
holding the
button again.

MEASURING AC OR DC CURRENT
Warning
Before making current measurements, make certain that all test leads are disconnected
from the meter terminals.
(1) Set the rotary function switch to the 80A, 40A or 4A position, depending on the
magnitude of current you expect to encounter. Because DC current measurement is
the meter’s default, the DC icon will appear on the left side of the LCD. To switch to
AC current measurement, press the SEL button to change the icon to AC. Before
measuring DC current, press the
button to reset the DC current measurement
baseline to 0A.
(2) Squeezing the clamp jaw release to open the jaw, place it around the conductor
whose current you wish to measure. Be sure to enclose only one conductor
(see figure at right). Enclosing both conductors of a pair will produce a reading of 0.
(3) Read the measured value from the display.
Notes:
A. The HHM301 Flex Clamp Adapter makes it possible to enclose a thick or hard-to-reach
conductor, a bundle of conductors, or a busbar carrying up to 3000A. The accessory uses induction
to convert current readings to millivolt values that can be displayed by the HHM380. For more
information or to order, visit www.omega.com and enter “HHM301” in the SEARCH box.
MEASURING AC OR DC VOLTAGE
Warning
Do not measure voltage higher than 600VRMS.
(1) Set the rotary function switch to the V position. By default, when the switch is set to this position the
meter will measure DC voltage, and the DC icon will appear on the left side of the LCD. To switch to
AC current measurement, press the SEL button to change the icon to AC.
(2) Plug the red and black test leads into the red INPUT and black COM jacks.
(3) Touch the black test lead to the lower-potential point of the circuit under test, and the red test lead to
the higher-potential point.
(4) Read the measured voltage on the display. If the test leads are reversed,a minus sign will appear at
the left of the displayed value.

Using the Non-contact Voltage Detector
The NCV function provides a safe (non-contact) way to check whether a line, cable or AC outlet is “hot”
(energized). At the tip of the clamp jaw (Fig. 1, Callout 9) is an NCV sensor that can detect from a short
distance the electromagnetic field created by AC voltage. If voltage is detected, the meter produces
audible and visual alarms (a beeping sound, and a flashing red light.
NCV detectors cannot detect DC voltages, such as those present in automotive electrical systems. In
addition, the HHM380 typically cannot detect 120VAC from a distance of more than 1 in. (25mm), and never
through a wall, metal conduit or cable shield.
To prepare to use the NCV detector, power on the HHM380 by setting the rotary function switch to any
position other than OFF. Then press and hold the yellow NCV button directly below the switch while
moving the top of the clamp jaw very close to the outlet, wire or conductor you suspect is energized. If the
circuit is “live”, the beeper will sound repeatedly and the red LED just below the OMEGA logo (Fig. 1,
Callout 2) will flash in synchronism.
MEASURING RESISTANCE
Warning
To avoid electrical shock or damage to the meter when measuring resistance or continuity in a circuit,
make sure the power to the circuit is turned off and all capacitors are discharged.
(1) Turn the rotary function switch to the
position. By default, when the switch is initially set to this
position with the test leads not plugged in the meter will automatically enter Autoranging mode and
display O.L (indicating an open circuit) on the LCD.
(2) Plug the red and black test leads into the red INPUT and black COM jacks.
(3) Measure the resistance by touching the tips
of the leads to the desired test points of the
circuit or to the terminals of a component,
as shown at right.
BLACK TEST LEAD
RED TEST LEAD
(4) Read the measured resistance on the display. If the measured resistance value is greater
than 40MΩ, O.L will appear on the primary readout.
10
CHECKING FOR CONTINUITY
Warning
Turn off power to the circuit and discharge all capacitors before making continuity measurements.
(1) Turn the rotary function switch to the
position. Press the SEL button twice to select the continuity
check function. If test leads are not plugged into the meter’s front-panel jacks, the display will show
OL., with the icon of a continuity beeper ( ) above it.
(2) Plug the red and black test leads into the red INPUT and black COM jacks.
(3) Touch the test leads to any two points of a circuit. The resistance between those two points will be
shown on the LCD. If the resistance is <50Ω, the beeper will sound continuously. If there is no
continuity (an open circuit or a resistance greater than 600Ω between the two points), OL. will appear
on the LCD.
CHECKING THE INTEGRITY OF A DIODE
(1) Turn the function switch to the
position. Press the SEL button three times to select the diode check
function. If test leads are not plugged into the meter’s front-panel jacks, the primary readout will show
.OL, with the icon of a diode ( ) above it .
(2) Plug the red and black test leads into the red INPUT and black COM jacks.
(3) Connect the red test lead to the anode
(positive terminal) of the diode to be tested,
and the black test lead to its cathode
(negative terminal).
BLACK TEST LEAD
RED TEST LEAD
(4) Read the forward bias voltage value on the display. A silicon diode typically has a forward bias voltage
of 0.7V. A germanium diode typically has a forward bias voltage of 0.3V. A 0V reading in both directions
indicates a shorted diode. An .OL reading indicates an open diode or reversed test leads. If the leads
are connected correctly, the diode is defective and should be replaced.
MEASURING CAPACITANCE
Warning
To avoid possible damage to the meter or other equipment, turn off the power source and discharge all
high-voltage capacitors.
(1) Disconnect the capacitor from power.
(2) Short the capacitor’s terminals to discharge it.
11
(3) Disconnect any resistors between the terminals of the capacitor.
(4) Turn the function switch to the
position. Press the SEL button once to select the capacitance
measurement function. If test leads are not plugged into the meter’s front-panel jacks, the primary
readout will show 0.000 nF.
(5) Plug the red and black test leads into the red INPUT and black COM jacks.
(6) Connect the test leads to the terminals of the capacitor.
(7) Read the measured capacitance on the display.
MEASURING FREQUENCY AND DUTY CYCLE
Frequency measurements can be made with the rotary function switch in the Hz or V position, or in any of
the three current measurement positions. The most-accurate reading over the widest range are made
with the switch in the Hz position, with the input voltage or current provided by the test leads.
To measure frequency in this mode:
(1) Turn the rotary function switch to the Hz position.
(2) Plug the red and black test leads into the red INPUT and black COM jacks.
(3) Connect the test leads to the voltage source or between loads.
(4) Read the measured frequency on the LCD.
To measure duty cycle with the switch in the Hz position, press the
button. % will replace Hz at the
right of the measured value.
With the rotary function switch in the Hz position, the meter can measure frequencies from 10Hz to
10MHz with an accuracy of ±(0.5% of the reading + 3 digits). For inputs at frequencies below 10Hz, the
primary readout will show 00.00 Hz. For inputs at frequencies above 10 MHz, the accuracy of duty cycle
measurements is not guaranteed.
Frequency measurements can be made with the rotary function switch in any of the three current
measurement positions 80A, 40A or 4A position, with input provided by current sensed by the clamp jaw)
or the V position (with input provided by the test leads). In both cases:
• The measured frequency is displayed on the LCD.
• Measurement accuracy is limited to ±(1.5% of the reading + 3 digits).
• The measurement range is limited to 40Hz to 10kHz.
12
With the rotary function switch in the Hz position, the meter can measure the frequency of AC currents
with an amplitude greater than 2VRMS. With the rotary function switch in the 80A, 40A or 4A position, the
meter can measure the frequency of AC currents with an amplitude greater than 4ARMS. With the switch in
the V position, the meter can measure the frequency of AC currents with an amplitude greater than
600mVRMS.
MEASURING TEMPERATURE
To measure the temperature of a solid, liquid or gas:
(1) Turn the rotary function switch to the °C/°F position. The HHM380’s default temperature
measurement unit is °C. To switch to °F, press the SEL button.
(2) Plug the included “K” thermocouple adaptor into the red INPUT and black COM jacks. Make sure to
insert the + (positive) plug of the adaptor into the red jack and the COM plug into the black jack.
(3) Plug the included “K” type thermocouple (or a different “K” type thermocouple) into the adaptor.
Make sure to insert the slightly wider blade of the thermocouple into the – (negative) slot of the
adaptor.
(4) To measure a surface temperature, firmly attach the tip of the thermocouple to the surface. To
measure the temperature of a liquid or gas (including ambient air), make the tip of thermocouple is
within the fluid.
(5) Read the measured temperature on the LCD.

6562 ft. (2000m)
Power source
Three “AAA” batteries
Dimensions
8.19 x 3.07 x 1.38 in. (208×78×35mm)
Weight (including batteries)
7.6 oz. (215g)
Note: Accuracy values are guaranteed for 1 year after factory calibration at an operating temperature
between 64° and 82°F (18° and 28°C) @ <80% RH. All accuracy specifications must be derated
(increased) by 5.5% for each degree F of operating temperature outside this range.
For example, an accuracy specification of ±3% between 64°F and 82°F would be derated to:
• ±3.165% (±3% + (3% x 5.5% x 1)) for operation at 63°F and 83°F (one degree outside the range)
• ±3.33% (±3% + (3% x 5.5% x 2)) for operation at 62°F and 84°F (two degrees outside the range)
• ±3.495% (±3% + (3% x 5.5% x 3)) or operation at 61°F and 85°F (three degrees outside the range), etc.
OPERATING & MAINTENANCE TIP
When the
icon appears at the upper left of the LCD, it’s time to replace the three “AAA” batteries that
power the meter (although measurements will remain valid for several hours after the icon first appears).
To replace the batteries, follow the instructions on p. 7.
Do not operate the HHM380 in the presence of a flammable or explosive gas or near an arc welder or
induction heater.
After subjecting the meter to a large change in ambient temperature, wait at least 30 minutes before
making measurements to guarantee the accuracy of readings.
Remove the batteries when storing the meter or when you do not expect to use it for an extended period
of time (months rather than weeks).
Do not disassemble the HHM380 or immerse it in water.
