    Curious as to the difference in amp draw at the machine versus close to the welding?

    What’s the difference between the 600A & 1000A.? I just bought the 600A to check my alternator but I still don’t understand how this works lol & the reason I purchased this one because I bought a high output 320A alternator they said to go get a AC/DC digital clamp meter to test the alternator & call them to see if the numbers are correct when shipped b4 I install it welp here I am asking for help lol thanks brother for your video but I’m not understanding it still lol
