I want to purchase a variac with a built in ammeter, to adjust input ac voltage while monitoring current (which can identify possible shorts before they damage circuit components). What I found online are variacs with a voltage meter only. Does anyone know of a product that has both a voltmeter and ammeter?

On the lab at the company I work, there is a Powerstat model L2M226C, which has both an ammeter and voltmeter.
But it is old, I ignore whether it is still available.

Thanks for your reply. My work lab also uses the Powerstat (with built in ammeter). It's incredibly expensive, if you can find one online. I'm trying to find a low cost alternative that I can use in my home hobby lab.
