Digital LCD Battery Operated Megohmmeter; Insulation Resistance Range: 4/40/400/4000 megohm is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Works.....Kinda Purchased this product for a large industrial food plant. I liked the features and ease of use. The down side of it was, there were no instructions on exactly how to use the features, when testing a 480vac system the meter read 345vac (lower voltages were more accurate), does not always turn on when the dial is turned on. We have 15 electricians on 3 shifts running 24-7, how do I communicate these issues accurately? For these reasons I would not recommend this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very good tester. I really like the ease with which this tester can be used. It make insulation testing very easy. I had one at my previous employer and when I switched companies this was the first test instrument I purchased.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very versatile and cost effective product. As a generator sales and service company, it is imperative that we are able to perform testing of our customers generator windings. The Amprobe AMB-45 does this and much more in a cost effective platform. I would recommend this to companies such as ours.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value and User Friendly I have used this meter for quite some time and have found it to be very accurate and easy to use. When I have loaned it to others they have quickly put the features to good use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I enjoy my AMB-45. It's simple to use and has convenient options. I enjoy my AMB-45. It's simple to use and has convenient options.I enjoy the timer function that allows for easy cable testing or hands free operation. The built in volt and ohm meter lets me to quick safety checks with one tool prior to megging. I've also tested the output several times and it is within 1v of the stated output every time. The battery also has decent usage life, although I've never used it for more than a hour or two at a time.I'm a real user / electrician NOT someone paid to post product feedback.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Full featured insulation testing multimeter The AMB-45 has met and exceeded my needs in a insulation testing meter. It has just the right features that compliment the testing that do on bus duct and switch gear.The high volt and low ohm features go hand in hand with this type of meter and the memory and record feature that lets me download to my computer is just brilliant . This meter comes with everything I needed and at a very reasonable price.Well Done Amprobe Co.
