An ammeter, either shunt or inductive. A shunt is an inline resistor of a small, known resistance. Knowing the resistance and the voltage one can calculate the amperage by Ohms law, I=V/R. An inductive, or clamp on ammeter measures the magnetic field and using more complex calculations displays the current, typically on a digital display.
