Rated 5 out of 5 by 2reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very diverse and user friendly functions. For being in the upper mid-range of multi-meters this device is well worth the price. Exceptional design, well thought out and versatile functions. The ability to test capacitance as well as most any other reading makes it great for HVAC work as well as line voltage, resistance, amp draw etc. One of the best meters in it's price range I have found. So much so I have specified it as the meter for 65 apartment community maintenance shops. April 29, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Solid built, well thought design Let's get started.***Construction:First of all, when you open the package, you get a feel for how robust this meter is compared to other multimeters in the same price range. It doesn’t have a removable holster, but the red rubber around it protects it and doesn’t feel sticky to the hand. The tilting bail is very wide and the meter doesn’t slide around when lying on the bench. There are hooks to put your leads on the back of the multimeter.The range switch feels very solid and won’t get stuck in the middle of two positions. One great thing about the range switch is that the off position is the first position. Some multimeters save the first position for a low impedance mode or a non-contact voltage probe and off is in the second position. This is annoying because you have to make sure you put the meter in the off position and not in the low impedance mode. This meter put the non-contact voltage detector before the A positions.The battery door design is great. You remove one screw and the battery comes loose. The tilting bail is stuck to the battery door. The screw hole isn't a metal threaded insert and can wear off with use. Let's hope the plastic holding the screw doesn't wear off.One thing I don’t like is that they combined AC and DC volts in a single function, but they kept ºC and ºF in separate positions. It doesn't make sense. The V position defaults to AC. It is and electricians multimeter, after all. I hope their Industrial version defaults to DC, but that is unlikely.There are 4 input jacks, which is good (makes it harder to blow the mA range fuse by accident). The meter wasn’t wide enough to place the jacks in a line and keep the standard 0.75” separation so they placed the V and A jacks slightly upwards as you can see in the picture. Something that's missing is an alert to tell you your probes are on the current jack when you are measuring voltage.***Let’s talk about features.The specs of this multimeter are quite basic, but again, this is an electricians multimeter. 0.8% DC accuracy. Using True-RMS, most measurements have 1% accuracy ±3 digits. Display update rate is OK. The bargraph display makes up for it. It is really fast and catches transients with accuracy before the display can respond.The non-contact voltage detector is excellent compared to the competition. The competitor doesn’t have as much sensitivity. The competition uses a separate button for this function, and it works even with the meter off. It can be activated inside your toolbox and drain your batteries. This one has a range switch position for it.Amprobe decided to include something novel in this meter, a torch. This mini-torch consists of a 5mm LED in the front of the unit. It is not very bright and won’t light up a room, but the main use is to identify wire colors and read labels in dark rooms. It is slightly blue, but I have no problems identifying resistor color codes.The diode range can only measure diodes with up to 2V drop and I see a problem there. This multimeter uses a 9V battery, not 2 AAs. You can easily get 4V for the diode range. The use of white LEDs for lighting applications is increasing and these LEDs have a voltage drop of 3V typically. People working with these installations will need another tool to test their LEDs.The temperature function has 0.1ºC resolution and that is fantastic. You can see even the slightest changes in temperature.***AccessoriesThe unit I have came with a soft case. Put the meter and the probes in the case and store it in your toolbox to keep it organized. Speaking of probes, these probes are CAT IV rated and the updated regulations require these probes to have just a tiny part of exposed metal, about the size of the tip of a ballpoint pen. I will keep some traditional probes around.The manual has improved a lot from the last Amprobe product I owned. Seems like they listened to a vey popular multimeter shootout video. My last Amprobe meter was featured there. The manual has diagrams describing how to measure different properties as well as having different languages. It even shows a method to test the fuses without opening the unit!Overall, it is a great multimeter for the price. March 28, 2013
