Extech EX845 METERLiNK
The EX845 is a 1000 A ac/dc CAT IV clamp meter withMETERLiNK technology and a built in infrared thermometer. METERLiNK wirelesslyconnects FLIR infrared cameras to Extech meters via Bluetooth to accelerate andsimplify inspections. During infrared inspections of electrical components,users can transmit key electrical readings such as current or voltage from theExtech EX845 clamp meter directly to a FLIR infrared camera. METERLiNKinstantly imprints the electrical readings onto a related infrared image toensure accurate, coordinated documentation for PdM inspection reports.


The EX845 clamp meter features true RMS meter functions

including ac/dc current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, infrared

and contact temperature, diode-test and continuity check. The peak hold

function captures inrush currents and transients. The bright 4-digit,

4,000-count backlit display is complemented by several one-button functions

including data hold, min/max and selectable auto- or manual-ranging. The large 1.7-inch

jaw opening handles conductors up to 750 MCM or multiple conductors such as two

500 MCM cables. For quick, point-and-shoot temperature readings, the

non-contact IR thermometer with laser pointer is useful for fast hot-spot

detection.

The meter has a CAT IV-600 V, CAT III-1000 V overvoltage

safety rating and is CE and ETL approved. It comes with an 8-piece professional

test lead set, 9 V battery, Type K thermocouple probe and a belt holster. NIST

certification is available.
