The 1587 and 1577 insulation multimeters combine a 1-kV digital insulation tester with a true-RMS digital multimeter. Weighing 1 pound, these portable tools offer digital multimeter functionality and measure AC/DC voltage, AC/DC milliamps, DC millivolts, resistance, and continuity. In addition, the 1587 takes readings of capacitance, diode test, voltage and frequency on variable-frequency drive systems through a low pass filter, minimum/maximum, and temperature. The devices are built to withstand spikes of 8 kV. For hands-free operation, the TPakâ„¢ magnetic hanging system can be connected to one of the multimeters.
