FLIR's Extech EX830 InfraRed Clamp Meter Touted as Super-Versatile by E.S.Gallagher's HVAC-R and Electrical Customers
Burlington, ON: July 23, 2008 – Extech Instruments (www.extech.com), a subsidiary of FLIR Systems, Inc., recently launched Canadian distribution of its comprehensive line of test and measurement equipment including the new EX800 series of clamp-on meters with built-in infrared thermometer which has been a hit with customers of E.S. Gallagher Sales (www.esgallagher.com) , FLIR's representative to Canada's HVAC-R and electrical markets. The innovative EX800 series makes it easy for technicians to measure AC and DC current accurately and also troubleshoot dangerous or hard-to-reach hot spots without the need for a separate IR thermometer.
The top-level EX830 is the only 1000 amp AC/DC clamp meter on the market that not only features Extech's exclusive built-in non-contact infrared thermometer with laser pointer, but also includes advanced multimeter capabilities, True RMS accuracy, fast peak hold for capturing inrush currents or transients, and a Type K thermocouple thermometer—all in a rugged, double-molded housing. This is one clamp you'll use everyday on every job.
Dave Shaw, sales manager for E.S. Gallagher Sales, comments on the favorable feedback he is receiving on the Extech clamp-meters, "The EX830 is competitively priced to offer today's HVAC contractor a meter that fulfills all their needs in the field. It does everything from DC and AC current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode and continuity, not to mention its non-contact IR thermometer. What more could you ask for?"
