Meterman Test Tools launches CAT III digital multimeters
Everett, WA—Meterman Test Tools has introduced what it reports are the world's smallest, fully featured CAT III digital multimeters (DMMs).
Everett, WA— Meterman Test Tools has introduced what it reports are the world's smallest, full-featured CAT III digital multimeters (DMMs). The new PM Series of ultra-compact DMMs reportedly offer superior user protection with UL safety ratings up to CAT III at 300 V and CAT II at 600 V.
Slightly larger than a credit card, each PM Series model has full-sized utility because of the large, oversized display of its measurement functions. PM Series meters are only 3/8 in. inch thick and weigh less than 3 ounces, so they can easily fit in a shirt pocket. Each multimeter meas-ures ac/dc voltage, resistance, frequency, and capacitance with an audible continuity beeper. PM Series' three meters offer a range of features, and are available now.
PM51 pocket meter measures frequency and capacitance for facilities and building mainte-nance personnel, automotive technicians, engineering students, and home hobbyists. It also in-cludes 4,000-count autoranging oversized display; capacitance range to 3,000 mF; and CAT II 600 V/CAT III 300 V dual rating.
PM53 pocket meter offers autoranging functions for facilities and building maintenance, residential and commercial electricians, automotive technicians, computer technicians, and home hobbyists. It also features: AutoTect, which automatically guides the meter to display ac volts, dc volts or resistance modes according to the task at hand; VolTect, a built-in non-contact voltage detector of ac voltages; capacitance, frequency and continuity features; transient protection to 4 kV and overload protection to 450 V; CAT II 450 V/CAT III 300 V dual rating; and a protective holster.
PM55 automatic-precision pocket meter for HVAC technicians, residential and commercial electricians, plant maintenance, electronics technicians and engineers, field service technicians, computer/medical equipment/aircraft technicians, and engineering students. It also features a one-touch button for all features; AutoTect to automatically detect and display ac volts, dc volts or resistance modes; VolTect, a built-in non-contact voltage detector of ac voltages; 6,000-count autoranging, over-sized display; measures ac and dc current to 2,000 mA; frequency measurements to 30 kHz; capacitance to 2,000 mF; intelligent auto power off; and a protective holster and a zippered carrying case.
