AMPROBE (R) AM-530 Full Size - Basic Features Digital Multimeter, -40° to 1832°F Temp. Range is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 10.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding Tool Excellent precise, durable and reliable tool at reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product except one small thing I really like using this multimeter. It is great for both school and work. The only issue I have is that it does not come with extra 500mA/1000V fuses, which would be nice especially since they are hard to get in many areas. You can adjust the decimal setting to compensate though.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Accurate I am tired of buying meters that are not accurate but this one proven to be accurate time after time

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The meter meets all requirements needed for maintenance of community facilities Working in the multi-family dwelling maintenance field for nearly 25 years, rarely have I found a tool that covers most needs of facility maintenance personnel. Troubleshooting electrical problems with the AM530 is relatively easy and precise. I have used the AM530 "True RMS" in every area of the facilities found at most communities from HVAC, to troubleshooting pool pump and aerator motors. The many features the meter offers are useful and combine functions found in multiple tools. Making the meter versatile whether used to trouble-shoot 5 HP pool pump motors to measuring flame signal from a spark or hot plate ignition furnace system, it's got it all. With the alligator clip leads accessory TL35B telephone troubleshooting DC voltage checks are simplified and accurate. Many other features make it the ideal tool for technicians in the facilities management field. A great meter at a reasonable price.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT!! he multimeter has a solid feel. The selector switch has well defined detents and the case does not spin if using it on a flat surface. The bail is fine and you can use all of the buttons without difficulty in the upright position except for the 400k Ohm input impedance button. The screen is big and easy to read; the decimal point is always easy to spot. There are two type-k temperature probes that can be attached for simultaneous readings. Past Amprobe multimeters have had an annoying beep when turning the selector switch; thankfully this function has been eliminated. There is also a non-contact voltage sensor function with an audible alarm (a visual warning would have also been good considering that this may be used in noisy environments).Amprobe has been in the electronic test equipment business for many years and made their name with current clamps. They are now owned by the Danaher Corporation which also owns Fluke (both headquartered in Everett, WA). Amprobe markets its products mostly to electricians and HVAC professionals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My history with AMPROBE goes back many years When I worked at TV-18 in Milwaukee, WI, I would BORROW the company"s AMPROBE DIGITAL CLAMP-ON meter. Then somebody borrowed it and NEVER RETURNED IT!DENNIS HOYERAUDIO TRANSFORMERS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very Good This is being used for school work and I can easily see me using it for other areas. The one concern is it is very easy to blow the MA fuse if not careful. Other than that it does everything I want to include an easy read screen.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Rather Disappointed I am rather disappointed with my AM-530 because it is actually very slow in obtaining steady final readings and shortly after purchase it became faulty with intermittently no display visible. I persisted with it for awhile because the fault was intermittent in nature but it failed totally after just a couple of months with eventually no readout visible at all.I then contacted Amprobe Support online about the fault issue and was subsequently contacted by Fluke warranty support from Washington USA who were very good to deal with and who immediately instituted the nescessary process to replace my faulty meter under warranty.Overall I am quite happy with the build quality, the operating features and the price of the meter but the slowness of obtaining final steady test readings and the faulty display issue has unfortunately soured the ownership experience for me.Williamfrom Australia
