Extech Instruments: Clamp Meter

June 14, 2010


The EX845 is a 1,000-A, ac/dc, CAT IV clamp meter with new MeterLink™ technology and a built-in infrared thermometer. MeterLink is a Bluetooth-based technology that connects the company’s meters and Flir infrared cameras. During infrared inspections of electrical components, users can transmit key electrical readings such as current or voltage from the clamp meter directly to an infrared camera. MeterLink instantly imprints the electrical readings onto a related infrared image not only adding time savings, but also ensuring accurate, coordinated documentation. The clamp meter’s advanced true RMS meter functions include ac/dc current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, frequency, infrared and contact temperature, diode test, and continuity check. The fast-responding clamp meter’s peak hold function captures inrush currents and transients. For quick point-and-shoot temperature readings, the infrared thermometer with laser pointer is useful for hot-spot detection. The meter comes complete with an eight-piece professional test lead set, a 9-V battery, Type K temperature probe, and a belt holster.
