A general purpose meter like this would be a good start

https://www.amazon.co.uk/d/Electrical-Tools-Testers/Pocket-Digital-Multimeter-Proster-Ranging-Multimeters-Tester/B015Z451ZY/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1479220836&sr=8-4&keywords=multimeter

The catch with most of these is that they will not measure anywhere near 50amp! - Read the small print

Perhaps get a general purpose meter and then a "current meter" from Component Shop  - see this page

They also have a general purpose meter @6

Or if you have deep pockets and want a Rolls Royce - Google "Fluke"
