Part of the highly regarded EX400 series, the top-level EX470 is the only multimeter on the market to feature not only a built-in non-contact infrared thermometer with laser pointer, but also advanced multimeter capabilities, ±0.3% True RMS accuracy, low-current capabilities down to 0.1 microamps, a large backlit display with 1" digits, and a Type K thermocouple thermometer---all in a rugged housing with multi-position stand and Velcro hanging strap. This is one meter customers use everyday on every job.
Dario Scognamiglio, partner at BIRDE Marketing, talks about the positive response his company has received from Extech's multimeters, "Without a doubt, no other meter offers the capabilities and value you get with Extech's EX470. It's well-designed and meets the demands of professionals in a wide array of industrial, manufacturing, plant maintenance, and electronics testing/engineering settings. It does everything from DC and AC voltage, to current, resistance, capacitance, frequency, diode and continuity, duty cycle--and of course, the versatile, built-in non-contact IR thermometer and Type K thermometer." He adds, "Too often, we see so-called multi-function testers and meters that trade compromises in capabilities for the sake of bundled convenience. The EX470 delivers on all functions with specs that don't compromise."
