Extech Launches Affordable Line of True RMS Multimeters with Available Built-In Infrared Thermometer
EX205T & EX210T shatter price barriers for technicians who demand measurement confidence and multi-function versatility
(Nashua, NH, USA) Extech Instruments, makers of the best handheld test and measurement tools, introduced today the most affordable line of True RMS multimeters including an infrared-enabled model. The new Extech EX205T and EX210T are rugged and compact multimeters that provide users with measurement capabilities that are immune to AC waveform distortions as well as point-and-shoot, non-contact temperature measurements for added safety on the job.
"Customers with tight budgets now have a choice to upgrade to auto-ranging multimeters that offer the added measurement confidence of True RMS accuracy," said Mike Fox, General Manager at Extech Instruments. "Users also enjoy less clutter thanks to the multi-function versatility of an integrated infrared thermometer, an acclaimed Extech hallmark."
The EX205T and EX210T keep delivering accurate measurements, even in industrial and commercial job sites where solid-state or electronic control components can distort AC waveforms, and similarly-priced averaging meters come up short.
The new EX210T, with a built-in infrared thermometer, is optimized for rapid scanning of overheating motors and for locating hot spots on electrical panels, or HVAC vents without contact. The built-in IR thermometer with laser pointer features a 4:1 distance to target ratio and a range from -5 to 446°F (-20 to 230°C).
The 4-digit backlit display is large and easy-to-read. The new DMMs measure current, voltage, resistance, and available infrared temperature. Customers tasked with minute, current readings can leverage low current resolution down to 0.1µA. The new EX210T also provides continuity and diode testing. Data functions include Maximum Reading and a Data Hold function to freeze a reading on the display.
The new EX205T and EX210T are Cat III-600V rated, making them suitable for electrical troubleshooting on electronics and appliances, or inside building circuits, including service panels and switchboards, distribution panels, three phase feeders, branch circuits, and single-phase branch circuits, connected to the service panel.
How to Order:
The multimeters come complete with test leads and 9V battery. The new models are both CE and ETL approved and can be ordered with optional calibration traceable to NIST. To find an Extech distributor, please visit http://extech.com/instruments/distributors.asp.
