Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors
You have to test current by putting multimeter on Amps setting in series with the load - very dangerous and since you are asking question like this I would suggest to get someone experienced to do it for you (not worth risking your life)
If you insist on doing it yourself get someone to supervise (someone with knowledge)

SOURCE: what is this used for,
It is used to detect live circuits through shielded wire or conduit. It will make an audible sound and light up when current is present. It will check from 12 to 600 volts. Here is the owner's manual. http://www.professionalequipment.com/images/pdf/e1200_manual.pdf

How to Check AC Volts with a Multimeter
The multimeter is an essential tool for electrical troubleshooting.
A multimeter is a versatile tool for measuring voltage and current. Electricians use multimeters to measure alternating current, or AC, and direct current, or DC, voltages and currents. Many multimeters also measure resistance, capacitance and temperature. For example, an electrician uses the multimeter's AC voltage setting to determine if a wall outlet has power or if a power supply is functioning. This knowledge helps the electrician pinpoint the cause of an electrical problem and select the appropriate repair.
Plug the black voltage probe into the voltmeter jack marked "COM."
Plug the red voltage probe into the voltmeter jack marked "V."
Rotate the range selector knob to the highest range setting, which is marked "VAC."
Turn the voltmeter on. Slide the power switch to the "ON" position.
Touch the probes to the device for which you measure the AC voltage. Use extreme caution. Ensure that the probes do not come into contact with anything but the surface you are measuring.
Read the voltmeter's display. Turn the range selector knob to a lower range if voltage is less than the currently selected range
