In moving-iron instruments, a piece of soft iron moves in the magnetic field created when the current to be measured flows through a fixed coil. They can be used with ac. or d.c. but are less accurate (though more robust) than the moving-coil instruments. In thermoammeters, which can also be used with ac. or d.c., the current is passed through ...
