Added to the Test & Measurement line, the new Klein Tools multimeters and receptacle testers were developed to withstand daily wear and tear on the job site. The meters are built to endure a 10-foot drop and include a raised rubber boot for increased display protection. They also feature improved accuracy and an easy-to-access fuse and battery compartment. The upgraded receptacle testers can withstand a 6-foot drop and include a new design that reinforces the prongs for longer life. The MM5000 and MM6000 are True RMS professional meters and have increased dc accuracy of ±0.3 and ±0.2 percent respectively. They include a low impedance setting to eliminate ghost voltages as well as a µA setting for checking flame sensors. The meters also have a large, back-lit display and analog bar graph to measure fast-moving readings. Both meters are double insulated, have a rubber molding for drop protection, and are CAT IV 600V-rated. The MM6000 also has temperature and frequency settings for HVAC use and a 6,000-count display. The RT500 and RT600 receptacle testers are designed to detect the most common wiring problems in standard 120-V receptacles. The devices test for correct wiring, open ground, reverse polarity, open hot, open neutral, and hot and ground reversed. The RT600 also tests GFCI rec-eptacles for proper operation. They have larger light indicators for greater visibility, fortified prongs for increased durability, and slip-resistant ribbing.
