Extech's EX623 5-in-1 Clamp Meter: A Smart Tool and a Smart Buy for Plant Maintenance Professionals
Waltham, MA (March 20, 2009) -- Extech Instruments, (www.extech.com),
a subsidiary of FLIR Systems, Inc., (NASDAQ: FLIR) presents the versatile EX623
5-in-1 clamp meter specifically designed for plant, HVAC/R and electrical professionals
in commercial, institutional, and industrial settings. No other clamp meter
offers the convenience and versatility of 5 meters in one instrument: AC/DC
"amp clamp" meter; advanced, True RMS multimeter; exclusive infrared
thermometer (Extech-patented); non-contact voltage detector; and dual input
5-in-1 clamp meter is a smart tool and a smart buy for plant maintenance professionals.
The EX623 accurately measures AC and DC current, voltage, and temperatures for
troubleshooting both new installations and preventive/ongoing maintenance and
repairs. The EX623's infrared thermometer and laser pointer make temperature
readings simpler and safer. And, having two Type K thermocouple inputs make
superheat and sub-cooling temperature measurements easier to perform. The DC
microamp function is ideal for flame rod current measurements and the EX623's
generous 36mm jaw opening handles conductors up to 500MCM. The EX623 makes users'
everyday installation, diagnostic, and maintenance tasks simpler and easier
-and with less toolbelt/toolbox clutter.
Multifunction Design: Ahead of the Pack
Market research firm, Frost & Sullivan recently forecasted a rise in combinational
testers as one major price-driven trend in test and measurement. Extech has
been on the leading edge of this trend for several years, adding exclusive,
patented infrared thermometer capabilities into a broad range of testers and
meters. Extech's remarkable EX623 combines multiple relevant functions in one
tool so technicians get more while spending less. For example, a plant professional
can opt for an Extech EX623 patented 5-in-1 clamp meter instead of buying a
clamp meter plus numerous other test tools. Designed by customer feedback, users
increasingly demand multi-function capabilities in one device with no compromises.
International Award Winner
The EX623 5-in-1 clamp meter was awarded the Gold Industrial Electronics Innovation
and Technology Award at one of the world's biggest electronics event, the 28th
annual Hong Kong Electronics Fair.
Judges remarked that with the current economic conditions, they were looking
for products that are not only built to exceed the demands of customers, but
also to meet their budget requirements. By offering one meter that functions
in the place of five, the EX623 delivers both high functionality and high value
for customers who need to get more and spend less.
Extech's extensive catalog covers sixteen product categories including airflow
meters (anemometers); moisture and humidity meters (hygrometers and psychrometers);
